The 2019 PowerHockey Canada Cup is the inaugural national tournament for PowerHockey Canada and will be hosted by PowerHockey Toronto. This new organization was established in late 2018 with a focus on the future of powerhockey in Canada and progressing the sport to the next level.
Powerhockey is a sport for para-athletes of varying abilities that use a power wheelchair. It not only is fast-paced and action-packed, it also showcases the abilities of the para-athletes that compete to the best of their ability each and every game. Powerhockey is extremely inclusive by ensuring that persons of all abilities, male or female, and young or old, are able to participate together on an equal playing field. Through this inclusive environment it fosters friendships that connect players the world over. Tournaments such as the 2019 PowerHockey Canada Cup are a perfect representation of this, seeing players come together for the purpose of fair and competitive sport, continuing to build a community for the future.
The 2019 PowerHockey Canada Cup is the first step toward the future of powerhockey in Canada and will feature top para-athletes on teams going head-to-head for four days of intense competition where the abilities of these athletes are showcased for the world to see.
