Roller Hockey Description
Roller hockey is an active, non-stop team sport in which participants on roller skates use sticks to attempt to hit a puck into their opponents' goal. This activity relies heavily on leg strength and endurance, cardiorespiratory endurance, flexibility, skill and coordination. It is a complex activity to master because one must learn how to skate, handle the stick, pass, and shoot competently to be an effective roller hockey player. Roller hockey is a sport which should not be played without protective equipment. Always warm-up and stretch before playing roller hockey.
