Practices have moved to Tuesdays from now on for the 2015-16 season. Ice time starts at 8:00 PM, so get there in plenty of time to get your gear on and stretch before practice starts. Practices are still at LA Kings Icetown Riverside (10540 Magnolia in Riverside). Thank you to a very generous donation from the LA Kings that allows us to have an ice time at a priority time.

Schedule for the 2015-16 season:

Note: all dates are subject to change.

Yes, we need to raise lots of financial support for these things. You will note that in addition to our regular practices, we have 5 travel tourneys and travel games. Two of those are only about a 5 hour drive away (Phoenix and Sacramento), but the rest are going to have to be airplane trips. If you have a boss who is interested in helping the LA Kings Sled Hockey Team financially, please contact us at

Sept 12- Walk for Hydrocephalus.

Oct 3- DisAbility Sports Festival at Cal State San Bernardino
Cal State San Bernardino has no ice rink, but they have asked LA Kings Sled Hockey's managers Todd and Christie Jenkins to give the keynote address to athletes and volunteers at their annual event. Come out and try several different adaptive sports, including kayaking, wheelchair basketball, archery, goalball, and many other things. The festival is open to people with all sorts of disabilities, including both mobility disabilities and developmental disabilities.

LA Kings Sled Hockey will have a booth there where you will be able to see a sled first hand, try shooting a hockey puck, and meet some of the athletes. We may even have some sleds with wheel kits for people to try.  Find out more about the event and/or sign up as a participant or volunteer here.

More information will be coming soon, but if you are a disabled veteran and would like to try sled hockey, this is your chance! Contact Todd at to make sure you get all the information as soon as it's available. This is a big deal and you won't want to miss it!

Also, we are in need of adult-sized hockey helmets for this event, so if you have one sitting on a shelf in your garage, please consider donating it to us. It will be greatly appreciated.

While at the Disabled Hockey Festival in Buffalo, LA Kings Sled Hockey had the pleasure of playing the USA Warriors, an all-disabled vet sled hockey team. 

Nov 19-22 NHL Sled Classic in Coral Springs, Florida

This summer, LA Kings Sled Hockey members participated on a 3 on 3 hockey tournament called Face Off With Cancer. Here is a newspaper article mentioning the involvement of the team. Darlene Bradford, a defensman on LA Kings Sled Hockey received a grant of $1,000 from Face Off With Cancer at the event.

LA Kings Sled Hockey plays a sled hockey demo at Face off With Cancer event in June in Simi Valley.

Dec 18-19- Outdoor game vs. The Ducks in Sacramento. ROAD TRIP! 
What the...???? Yes, you read that right. It's an outdoor game at a temporary outdoor rink that will be at Raley Field in Sacramento. The AHL will be hosting an outdoor hockey game between the AHL's Stockton Thunder (Calgary's new AHL affiliate) vs. the Bakersfield Condors (Edmonton's new AHL affiliate) on December 18, and we have been asked to play a sled hockey game prior to the AHL game. They are working out the schedule as we speak, and the official AHL schedule will be released on August 31, so there is a possibility it will be slightly different than described. Yes, we will be playing one or two outdoor games on an outdoor rink in a baseball stadium. Sounds like a hoot!

You may remember the LA Kings playing a game against the Anaheim Ducks at Dodger Stadium in 2014. Having a temporary sheet of ice in a baseball stadium is not unheard of. 

Jan 8-10- Western Sled Hockey League Tourney- HERE in Southern CA!!!
