Get charged up! Variety Ontario is proud to present VOLT Hockey. This exciting accessible sport is the ultimate team opportunity. Played in a 3 vs 3 format, athletes use a low to the ground, electrically run chair that starts off slow and reaches a lightning fast 15 km/hr. Played in a gym setting the game includes two 15 minute periods and two referees. Through VOLT, players gain confidence, crucial life skills and friendships that will last a lifetime. In VOLT you only encounter obstacles in the form of opponents and players, and sometimes the referee.

Learn to play!

This program introduces participants with varying mobility needs to the fundamentals of the game of VOLT Hockey.

Variety’s one hour class focuses on learning to work with the electric VOLT Hockey chair, operation of joystick controls and the objective of game play. Grassroots athletes will have opportunity for exhibition play among other athletes.

VOLT Hockey are supplied by the facility operating the programing. Variety Ontario has purchased 10 chairs in partnership with VOLT Hockey Canada sponsored by individual donors.

Live in action!

Variety hosted a VOLT Hockey during March Break to introduce the sport to young athletes with disabilities. During the camp we had the Danish VOLT Hockey champion, Nicklas Charlton and UB-Let representative Allan Johansen training six young athletes with disabilities how to play VOLT Hockey and use the chairs.

On Wednesday, March 16, Maple Leaf Coach Mike Babcock and players BRAD BOYES , BYRON FROESE and JAMES VAN RIEMSDYK came by to meet with the kids and support the program.

Volt Hockey Launch

Thanks to our donors, we received over $100,000 to launch this new movement for inclusion in sport. Following a week-long VOLT Hockey Camp held over the March break, the players from Variety Ontario VOLT Hockey demonstrated their skills at the VOLT Hockey Launch on Saturday, April 9, 2016.

The impact of this sport is an increased opportunity for children with disabilities to participate in sport, improve their fitness, and build their confidence playing Canada’s beloved game.

Thanks to our donors, we have received over $400,000 to launch this new movement for inclusion in sport!

The milestones for the program included recruiting 10 members this year, introducing the participants to the sport and hosting a friendly competition at Variety Ontario. Over time, we wish to grow the league and develop a team that can compete provincially, nationally and internationally.

We would welcome your visit to Variety so you can see for yourself the sheer joy our young people experience participating in this exiting sport.
