If it's ice hockey you're looking for, it's not hard to find. SkateZone has sessions on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Palm Beach Iceworks has pick-up on Tuesdays and Thursdays and also on Saturday and Sunday. I'm not sure of Incredible Ice, but I've played there on Friday nights--I'm sure they still have at least that session. There's also Glacier Ice and Snow, but I haven't had all that much luck there. I played there once, but the couple other times I tried, they canceled the sessions.
Here are the websites to those places:
(Formerly called Incredible Ice)
Looking at the sites, it seems Glacier Ice and Snow does have sessions during the week. I tend to stick to the other three, though. I think as of now, SkateZone gets the best turnout during the week. The times that I have played at Incredible Ice have been pretty busy, too. You should be prepared to call in ahead and reserve a spot.
As far as roller hockey goes, i can't say. I know there used to be a group of guys who played at an outdoor rink every Tuesday. This was quite a while ago, so I'm not sure if that still happens.
This was assuming that you were moving to South Florida, if you're moving to the Tampa area, I usually played at TBSA. They usually have multiple sessions every week. There's also a rink down in Ellenton, on in Clearwater, and one in Brandon (where the Lightning practice). I can't really speak for the schedules of the other three places--I'm most familiar with TBSA. If you're moving to the Orlando area, all I know of around there is the RDV Sportsplex. My brother used to play there, I never have. I assume they have pick-up, though.
