The South Korean men’s national sledge hockey team has been in San Diego since last weekend where they have been training with the San Diego Adaptive Sports Foundation’s San Diego Ducks.  Their last scheduled practice with the team is this coming Monday.  They have had a number of days with two or three a day practices, with the first practice on the ice at 7:45 AM local time and sometimes the last practice of the night occurring at 9:00 PM local time.

The South Koreans are in the United States ahead of the 2015 IPC Ice Sledge Hockey World Championships B-Pool in Ostersund, Sweden which run from March 15 to 21.  Teams at the B-Pool World Championships include Sweden, South Korea, Great Britain, Slovakia and Poland.

 

Late last year, the South Korean team participated in the 2014 Czech Sledge Open at the Kalich Arena in Litoměřice.  They beat Germany 6 – 1 in one of their games.  The team also competed at the 2014 Winter Paralympics in Sochi, where they finished last in their group, and then went on to beat Sweden 2 – 0 in the 7th/8th place classification game.
