Instead of traditional skates, players use a specially made sled to glide across the ice. They propel themselves using two small hockey sticks. The extra equipment allows veterans who are missing limbs, or are otherwise disabled, to compete.

The tournament is sponsored by the Society for American Military Engineers, the Canton Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1231 and Canton Knights of Columbus, Sarto Council 1059.
