Roller hockey

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

(Redirected from Rink hockey)

Roller hockey is a form of hockey played on a dry surface using skates with wheels. The term "Roller Hockey" is often used interchangeably to refer to two variant forms chiefly differentiated by the type of skate used. There is traditional "Roller Hockey," played with quad roller skates, and "Inline Hockey," played with inline skates. Combined, roller hockey is played in nearly 60 countries worldwide. Both are very fast sports.

Similarities and Differences Between Roller Hockey (Quad) and Roller Hockey (Inline)

Roller Hockey played on Quad skates and Roller Hockey played on Inline skates have different rules and equipment, and they involve different types of skating but share the name Roller Hockey. Roller hockey (Quad) is played using traditional quad roller skates, affording greater maneuverability to the player - this results in games filled with fancy footwork, tight maneuvering, and is more similar to soccer or basketball. Roller Hockey (Inline) bears closed resemblance to ice hockey and is played on Inline skates, and includes a lot of fast "racing back and forth" action. Both forms of Roller hockey are exciting games to watch.

The game is played by two teams, consisting of four skaters and one goalie, on a dry rink divided into two halves by a center line, with one net at each end of the rink. The game is played in two 20-minute periods, or similar. Inline Hockey is referred to by many names worldwide, inlcuding Ball Hockey, Inline hockey, Longstick hockey, Road hockey, Street hockey and Skater hockey depending on which region of the world it is played.
