If they do come to Savannah then i'll go to the try-outs but if they don't come to my city this year i'll just have to wait.

good luck. maybe we'll meet in the championships some time.

i actually dont know if i can even play next year, my life has changed job wise and i may have to give it up. id miss it, it was a pain in the ass making the commitment sometimes, but i would definitely miss it.

Do you know the age for trying out. I saw on the site that you have to be 15 to enter the prospect draft. So how old do you have to be to try out.

honestly i dont know. you have to 18 to play pro, i thought you had to be 16 for the minors, though i thought i saw some younger guys than that occasionally. best bet is just to contact them through the site or the local people involved. your division may have rules that are slightly different. its supposed to be all the same thing, but it doesnt always work out that way. thats why it may be a good idea to talk to whoever is involved locally as well as the league guys.

If there was a local team in Edmonton to try out for - I would. Not trying to boast, but I think I'd make any roller hockey team anywhere.

2 weeks ago I played against one of the better players in the PIHA. We beat his team, but he was fairly sick.

I'd play in the league if it payed any sort of money, but I couldn't make the commitment with the job I have.

do you know when they play? id figure if they dont pay (which is bizarre for a professional mens league) games should only be on the weekends, so guys can still have a day job.

I think they get paid a very small amount(not enough to make a lively off of) the minor league plays on the weekends, i don't know about the pro league.
