Are there any notable players? I remember reading Josef Boumidienne said he is of Algerian descent and that he would play for the team or help out in some way.
No we have very few white people in Algeria, the players mostly play in france, which we were a colony of. A small rink was recently built in the city of Tizi Ouzou and we are putting a junior programme in place.
There are plans for a league across morocco and tunisia, morocco already has a rink and team, tunisia is currently building a rink.
