Pickup street hockey

So, myself along with several other people get together about twice a week for some pick up roller hockey. We usually play on Wednesday evenings and Saturday afternoons. We would like to have some more people though, especially goalies. All skill levels and ages are welcome.

We have an email list where we plan the games and everyone confirms their attendance. If you are interested give me your email and I'll add you to the list.

The location is in "the run" which is located in Greenfield, right off of 2nd avenue where it enters Hazelwood.

It's right behind Big Jim's In The Run (I think it was featured on Man vs Food). The address is
201 Saline St.
Pittsburgh, PA 15207

If you have any questions feel free to ask.


disclaimer: skates only. No hockey on feet

I play there w/ Ziggy, and we could def. use more players. To echo what he said...we usually have pretty comptetive games and usually have a goalie or two. We've had an email list going around for a few years, but it seems like we have been losing players recently.

So if you or a group of friends want to join us, let us know. We usually play wednesday evenings and saturday afternoons, but if we can find more players, we could def. play more often/other days.

Oh and we are always looking for goalies!

Now that the nice weather is back, im def. lookin to play more hockey outside!

Hey guys,

I'm assuming this is right down by panther hollow? I'd definitely be interested, as I go to Pitt, and can never find guys to play with. Wednesday nights might be kind hard to make, but Saturdays would be great

I'd go but I don't really want to embarrass anyone.

Plus, as documented previously my spawn have taken over my life and are threatening to end my hockey "career".

9 minutes from my house according to google maps. Question though, what kind of playing surface is it? Asphalt or sport court and is it indoors or outdooors.

Might be tough to commit to that one

Clay concrete. Typical outdoor hockey surface. It is outdoors but its directly under a bridge.

I am coming down for the Pittsburgh marathon in early May, will you still be going then? I'd be interested in joining your group for a game.

Yup, its not too far from Panther Hollow. We actually play at Panther Hollow in the winter when/if it freezes...always nice to get some pond hockey in. Unfortunately its been a really warm winter, so not much luck this year with that.

But yeah, def. shoot ziggy or me a PM, and we'll add you to the list.

Like Ziggy said, its clay concrete, good surface for roller hockey as long as your wheels are hard. We have one NHL regulation net down there, and we bring another net when we have two goalies. We used to have big games there all the time, with 15-20 players showing up and making 3 teams. Recently we'v been having 5-10 guys show up, so im hoping with this post and the warm weather coming up, we can go back to having bigger/better pickup games.

So what's the gear, just blades and a stick for skaters? I'll bring my blades down & if it works out pick up a throw away stick at a local store.

I'm not a runner, 1st marathon and raising money for charity but would like to find some other activities to take part in while myself and the GF are in town.

Yea, all you need is a pair of roller blades and a stick.

Also, if anyone has a net or goalie pads feel free to bring them. They could come in handy.

We usually play around 530 on wednesdays and 1 on saturdays. And other random days where its just nice out and people wanna play.

Im not sure on this wednesday, as it kinda gets dark around 615-630 still. We might wait a few weeks before going on wednesdays, just to give us some more light. But we should def. be playing this saturday.

Like i said earlier, we have an email list going around, where if theres a game, we just send an email and people reply if they can play. So if you want to get added to the list, just send Ziggy or me a PM.

As far as gear, we all just use sticks/skates/gloves...

I'd love to play, but I'm not quite there yet. I just started practicing for roller hockey -- I can skate well enough, but I'd be afraid to embarrass myself, heh.

I usually practice at the beat up rink in Greentree by the school.

That's why... It's a lot easier to play on feet against people with skates where you can sprint and stop on a dime.

Is that rink really that tore up? I just moved here over the winter and the Green Tree rink is maybe 2 min from me. I've been eyeing it up, but I never see anybody there.

I might give that rink a shot. I work 8-5 once a month, so there's probably a few weeks that I won't make it.
