I think the hardest thing for roller players is stopping. Have you learned how to use all four edges yet on the ice?

Also, with many roller hockey players, there is this "hot dog" mentality. Many roller players love to carry the puck and don't pass as often.

No one can move faster than the puck.

The best tip I can give you is to dish the puck. Your teammates will love you and it will make you a better player.
