The Vermont Sled Cats sled ice hockey program, an affiliate of the Northeast Disabled Athletic Association (NDAA), was founded in spring 2005. Since its inception, the Sled Cats have catered to a wide-range of persons with physical disabilities who wish to participate and compete within sled hockey. With its 11th season underway in 2015-16, the Sled Cats team has grown from its infancy of a four-person contingency, to a near 25-person program. Cairns Arena in South Burlington has served as the Sled Cats' home ice since 2005.


The Sled Dogs is a team of Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country (ASPNC). ASPNC IS a nonprofit organization located in Franconia, NH, providing year-round sport, recreation and wellness opportunities for people with disabilities.
