Overview of Adaptive skating and ice games at Driscoll Memorial Rink in Fall River

A woman wearing a thick faux fur hood is crashing through a tower of colorful blocks in her power wheelchair. Behind her, other skaters are being pushed in ice sleds by Durfee High School hockey players, or using skates and helmets.
  • Fees: Free, but pre-registration is required.

Lace up a pair of conventional skates or slide around the ice on your manual or power wheelchair. Ice sleds are also available to glide around—propel yourself with small hockey sticks or be pushed around the rink by a friend.

Activities on the ice include obstacle courses, a tower of blocks for building up and crashing down, races, colorful balls and pucks to shoot around, power chair games, and gently competitive hockey matches.

Ice sleds, skate walkers, helmets, ice grippers, and ice skates are available for use, free of charge.
