We started getting involved with Roller Hockey in 1993 and 1994. My son John-David Carling
got his first roller blades, and was trained in the Montgomery Village East Community Center
program by a local hockey Ref. He later played in the Maryland Street and Roller Hockey Association
League with a newly formed Midget team called the Rebels. Most of our players were 11-13 years of
age in a Midget League of 13-16 year-olds which was the only level available at that time. Naturally,
we lost a lot of games, but had a great time together with team mates Ryan Doughty and
Will Musser from our neighborhood. It was a lot of fun
The following year, J.D. was assigned to older and more proficient team, the Demons, and I was their
coach. We won the State Midget B championship in the spring and then took the state
A Division championship in the summer, The following year, 1996, we formed another new team
called the MOOSE, along with some of the guys from the previous year, and a select
group of players, and took the state A Division championship again in the Spring, winning
virtually every game by a wide margin.
A few words about NAMES for hockey games if I may....
There is now a new term appearing - SKATER HOCKEY
So, let's define some terms here in case you are confused!
ICE HOCKEY - This is THE game of hockey. Everyone knows what it is!
HOCKEY - A general term used for almost any of the sports listed here.
FIELD HOCKEY - Played on a field with a curved-end stick. Mostly girls.
LACROSSE - Played on a field with a loosely netted racket.
STREET HOCKEY - Played without skates, using similar rules to Roller Hockey
ROLLER HOCKEY - Played on roller blades either in a rink, street or tennis court etc.
IN-LINE HOCKEY - Another name for Roller Hockey
SKATER HOCKEY - Another term used for Roller Hockey (Mostly used in the U.K.)
Personally I think "Skater Hockey" is a poor term to use, because you SKATE in two different forms of hockey!

From: Doug Hicks E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Roller Hockey Tournaments and Stuff Brian: Just saw your web page for the first time. It's looking good and I especially like all the links to other web sites. You mentioned you were looking for the January Tournament results from Bethany, Missouri. Marshalltown, Iowa won followed by Des Moines, Iowa (us). It was a tournament for 15-16 year olds. You can also list the tournament that we are planning for Des Moines, Iowa on April 12-13. It should be a good one as we plan on bringing in some of the best teams from the midwest. (Our teams alone are pretty good: Last year our 8 and unders were 1st in ball, 2nd in puck; our 11-12 team was 2nd in ball; our 15-16 team was 3rd in ball at the USAC Nationals.)
