ANNUAL SLED HOCKEY TOURNAMENT RETURNS TO AMELIA PARK, MAY 2-4
by posted 04/08/2014
 
ANNUAL SLED HOCKEY TOURNAMENT RETURNS TO AMELIA PARK ARENA, MAY 2-4 
 
Amelia Park Ice Arena in Westfield is proud to announce that they will be hosting the 16th Annual New England Sled Hockey Invitational Tournament MAY 2-4, 2014. The tournament, held for the twelfth time at Amelia Park Ice Arena, will consist of adult and junior divisions competing throughout the weekend from 7am-11:00pm (Friday & Saturday) and championship games (Sunday) from 7am-4:30pm. 
 
Attendance to the tournament is FREE and will showcase over 200 athletes and coaches from eight states & Canada. Past & Present Paralympians, including 2014 Gold Medalist Taylor Chace, will be participating. 
 
“This tournament is truly amazing and really represents the mission of our rink,” said Carole Appleton, Executive Director of Amelia Park Ice Arena. “We are so proud to host these athletes, their families and friends once again at our facility.” 
 
The Pioneer Valley will have two teams of their own team participating, the Springfield Sliders, in the junior division, and the Western Mass Knights, in the adult division. The Sliders and the Knights practice weekly at Amelia Park. 
 
The weekend tournament not only includes competition by athletes but opportunities for fans to interact with the athletes as well. Informal meet and greets with athletes will take place each day courtesy of Women’s Law Enforcement Association (WLEA). The rink fundraises throughout the year to cover all tournament and ice fees for the teams. 
 
Sled Hockey, or sledge hockey as it is known internationally, is a sport that was designed to allow participants who have a physical disability to play the game of ice hockey. Sled Hockey was invented in the early 1960s in Stockholm, Sweden at a rehabilitation center.  It is currently one of the most popular sports in the Paralympic Games. 
 
Amelia Park Ice Arena is an ice arena/sports complex and memorial garden, financed by the late Westfield philanthropist, Albert F. Ferst, in memory of his wife Amelia. The Albert & Amelia Ferst Operating Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit entity, was formed in 1998, with the expressed purpose of building a recreational facility and garden in her memory. 
 
If you are interested in being a part of this event, please contact Carole Appleton, Executive Director at Amelia Park Ice Arena, at 413-568-2503 or

Properly Cleaning That Smelly Hockey Gear!
by posted 04/01/2014
 

With the hockey season over, many of us have put the hockey equipment for the summer as our kids begin to transition to baseball, softball, lacrosse and other spring sports.  While you may be putting that equipment away for a few months, it is important to make sure that the equipment is properly cleaned, sanitized and dried so that it will be fresh for the upcoming season.

To do so, please follow these steps.

Step 1: Fill a bathtub or sink with hot water. It should be about a third full and should not be so hot that it hurts to touch the water. Your hands will need to be in the tub for a fair amount of time, so be aware of the temperature.
