Inline Leagues

Hi all,

im moving to North America for a few years for academic reasons ... Im playing Skaterhockey in Europe. Thats basically Inlinehockey with a ball instead of a puck with body contact, no offside on a smaller rink.

Being able to play this in NA would significantly influence my decition on where to go to. I could not find any decent information where inline players are properly organized - not to talk about the possibility to play Skaterhockey.

Could anyone give me an advice on how Inline/Skaterhockey is organized in the US/Canada?

There's a decent amount of inline hockey on the east coast, but the leagues that I know all use pucks. If you're coming here for college, there are club teams that go to tournaments in different states every few weekends and play a handful of games while you're there.

http://ncrha.org/

That website has the different divisions and what schools compete in them. Outside of that, I know Long Island (NY) has a few different roller rinks with house leagues in them. They all definitely use pucks though.

NARCh is very popular for tourney play, as well as TORHS

You aren't going to find your version of skaterhockey in the US. It's just not something we play. If you are coming to the US for college/university, would absolutely reccomend playing in the ncrha. Well run league for college students that crowns a national champion at the end of the year. It absolutely satisfies the competitive juices flowing in a player. If you are at a school that doesn't have a team, starting one really isn't that hard. I'd be happy to explain the process, just send me a PM

Buffalo, NY has leagues of ball hockey but there is limited checking(not supposed to but things happen) and there is offsides. The rinks are medium size
