What is Inline Hockey?
Inline Hockey is a sport similar to ice hockey but played with inline skates. Like ice hockey, skaters on two teams use hockey sticks to direct a disk shaped puck into the opponent's goal. Unlike ice hockey, inline hockey is a non-contact sport.
The playing surface can be bitumen, concrete or wooden floors, making it more accessible than ice hockey. Inline Hockey is most popular in areas with indoor artificial inline hockey rinks which make it a year-round amature sport. It can however be played anywhere where a large, appropriately surfaced and preferably enclosed venue can be found (eg Tennis court).
Who can play?
Boys and girls as young as 6 years old can play in organised competition. Younger children are able to participate in the "Learn to play Inline Hockey Program" dependent upon their skating ability.
Boys and girls play together in all age groups. In the junior league the age groups are:
10 & Under
12 & Under
14 & Under
17 & Under
There is also an adult league, where again men and women play as equals. Teams are catergorised into ability levels and play other teams of the ability level (eg B Grade, A Grade and AA Grade).
What do you need to play?
All players, at all levels need to be a member of Skate Australia. This covers all members for insurance.
The "Learn to play Inline Hockey Program" requires children participating to have their own inline skates. All other equipment is supplied.
Members playing in a competitive league are required to supply their own equipment.
