Rollerhoc is a much gentler version of Roller Hockey, or rink hockey and although it is non-contact, safety gear is compulsory, so you must bring and wear pads and a helmet otherwise you will not be allowed to play. Normal skate pads and skate helmet are all you need.
We always welcome new players and it really is the best way to improve your general skating while having some fun and getting a great work out too.
Not sure you could handle it? Then come along and watch first, but bring your skates anyway as you'll want to join in.
ROLLERHOC™ is based on Unihoc (similar to Floorball) but played on wheels. It is a high energy low cost activity, exciting, full of fun and easy to learn. It improves your fitness more than you can imagine and considerably enhances your skating skills.
The game originated in 2010 but we don't claim to be the only inventor of this hockey adaptation. It is likely other groups play their own version of this game on wheels. Do not confuse Rollerhoc with roller hockey they are two very different games.
An adult game is played indoors by mixed players of ALL ages, normally 4 a side (no less than 3, no more than 5) using short hockey sticks playing a light puck (or ball). Sticks, must not be longer than 125cms from the tip of the blade to the end of the handle and is used by all players including the goalkeeper. The short stick is an inherent part of the game.
Players should have had some skating experience and know how to stop. You do not have to be a good skater to take part. If you cannot skate at all but would like to play Rollerhoc take skating lessons first to help you get started.
