there was a rink there 6 yrs ago that had hockey, i bet they still do, lookin the phone book for skating rinks. I think it was on bearss or fowler. IM sure there are other places as well.

I just played in a TORHS regional in Temple Terrace, right outside of Tampa, decent rink, The Roller Den off Busch Blvd.

i just remembered, the old rink was on armenia, avenue i think. it was in central tampa, actually a somewhat bad neighborhood back then. i wish you luck, ive decided to make the one hour drive to play each week this summer...

how long has the roller den been there? I kind of want to contact the guy to see if he has ever thought of opening a place in st pete/clearwater!! there are tons of players here and yet not a single roller rink with a league ( the closest one is an hour away!!!) He could make a killing, if u give me the guys email address or speak with him, i would be heavily in your debt:), if u post the fon number of the place, i would love it, u can send it to me at [email protected]

The Roller Den, or Tampa Wolfpack Hockey, is located at 5313 E. Busch Blvd about 3 minutes east of Busch Gardens. We have leagues for all ages and skill levels. We offer adult pick-up hockey on Monday and Saturday nights. Monday 10-12p.m. and Saturday 8-10p.m. Both session costing only $6.
If you or anyone else is interested, please feel free to contact the rink at (813) 980-6606.

is it sport court? and is there a summer season for people say, 20 yrs of age?:) what night are games played and whats the cost for a season? if this place is awesome, maybe i could make the extra drive!

No sport court. We still have whats called Roll On flooring. (concrete base with polyurethane coating for grip). Puck doesn't move as fast, but way nicer to skate on. Actually, that is just my opinion, but i've skated on all surfaces.
We have a few different leagues to choose from. They will all be starting again soon. How long have you been playing? We have a pretty good A league on Thursday nights. Your best bet would be to make the trip for a pick-up session and introduce yourself. Then we can see you skate and let you know where you would fit in best.

thanks, ill try to be there saturday nite,should i use my soft wheels, labeda gripper lites, or my outdoor hard wheels, kuzak zones for that surface??

Depends on how you skate. If you skate hard, you will probably destroy your grippers, so you want to go hard. If you are more of a floating skater, you can get away with the grip lites
