Rink Hockey

Rink Hockey also know has Quad Hockey or Hardball Hockey, was a sold out spectator sport in the 1992 Olympics, and is internationally played in over 50 countries. Rink Hockey is played on squad skates with a cane style hockey stick and a hard style ball. Teams are made up of Two five- person teams (four skaters and one goalkeeper). Games are fast passed with minimal player to player contact and produce great amounts of skill in skating and stick handling.

Roller Derby

Game play consists of a series of short matchups (jams) in which both teams designate a jammer (who wears a star on the helmet). The jammer scores points by lapping members of the opposing team. The teams attempt to hinder the opposing jammer while assisting their own jammer, in effect playing both offense and defense simultaneously.

Freestyle

Highly technical field of skating that involves performing tricks around a straight line of equally spaced cones. The most common spacing used in competitions is 80 centimeters, with larger competitions also featuring lines spaced at 50 and 120 centimeters.

Speedskating

A non-contact sport requiring skaters to display their skills to maneuver cleanly through the pack and into winning position. Skaters are disqualified for pushing, blocking, forcing another racer out of position or using their arms, legs or hands in any way that impedes the progress of other competitors.
