On June 23-24, Space Coast Sled Hockey hosted our 5th annual 3v3 cross-ice sled hockey tournament and raffle. 28 teams, 112 players, and 50 games, in two days and total of 8 hours of hockey! We also had over 40 raffle prizes and baskets.
This year there were 8 teams in the very competitive police
and firefighter division, with the Corbett’s of the Orlando Fire Department
defeating the defending champs the Ice holes of Melbourne Fire Department. MFD,
OFD, Brevard County Enforcers, BCSO and Melbourne PD all competed for the cup.
In the friends and family divisions, Team Security made up
of Space Coast Sled Hockey players’ dads and the Mother Puckers made up of
Space Coast Sled players’ moms realized how much harder the sport is than it
looks from the stands. Their games were fun to watch especially when they
played against their kids.
The fundraiser was a huge success, raising over $6,000 and wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our many sponsors and volunteers. Coach Brad Cervi did an amazing job organizing, promoting and running the event, and recruiting teams.
Space Coast Blast Sled Hockey celebrated another successful season with an end of the year banquet on May 18th at the Knights of Columbus. The 2018-2019 season was another banner year for both our youth and adult travel teams. Our banners and trophies were on display at the for all our guests to see:

It was a great evening spent with teammates, coaches and
their families bonding over a delicious potluck dinner. Coach Brad was the MC and did a wonderful job
individually recognizing every player, coach and volunteer in attendance from
The banquet was also a special opportunity for the team to recognize founder Coach Tom Reinarts for his commitment, dedication and contributions to the Blast’s growth and success. He will be retiring from the program after 12 years and will be greatly missed. Players in attendance are pictured here with Coach Tom.
