The
club was formed in January 1999, with the aim of promoting the sport
of Inline Roller Hockey in the Stockport area, in a controlled and
safe environment for people of all ages and gender.
Inline hockey
is based on the fundamentals of skating, stickhandling and puck control,
passing and receiving, shooting and positional play.
The game
is similar to ice hockey, in that it is played with a puck and you
wear similar protective clothing. However unlike ice hockey, there
is only “limited” contact, there is no offside, there are 4 out players
instead of 5 and the pad is smaller.
Because
it is played in a rink that retains the puck, inline hockey demands
involvement of all players on every shift.
Unlike other
sports, it requires constant changes of players throughout the game,
in order to maintain the fast paced action.
This continual
changing of players builds a stronger bond between all the members
on a team and gives everyone a turn to play.
Training
sessions are held on a regular basis for all abilities, from complete
novice, to experienced seniors playing in league matches against other
teams in the Greater Manchester area.
Our club
competes in the Northern Inline Hockey League, NIHL, which has over
400 members from 28 teams.
All matches
in this league take place each weekend at Ordsall Leisure Centre in
Salford.
