Lake Placid Blind Hockey Checklist

(Click here to access, print or download as Word document)

Athletes and Volunteers

We are about to embark on another historic journey, doing things that few people have ever done before. We are pushing the limits of our sport, and future Paralympic sports. This is just the beginning, folks. We will continue our journey building Blind Hockey, taking it places it’s never been before. I’m working on something very special for March.

While on our travels stay sharp – please listen very closely to myself, and the volunteers. These are times when being sloppy could cause injury, or worse.

Please use the checklist below to ensure you have everything needed and are dressed appropriately for the Adirondack conditions. Bring a few outfits as it snows often in Lake Placid and with some of our activities we may get wet, and sweat. Expect to need multiple outfits per day.

The official hashtag to use on social media is: #WashingtonElite
