hi, my name is Jim MAtte current League PResident and founder of MIchigan Premier Roller Hockey. I amtryin to help in the growth of sport at all levels. With the 2000-2001 MPRH season set to kick off I have set my sites on unification at the High School Level. I am in the process of building a website that would show all high school teams (that are interested in participating) schedules, game results and current rosters. I am also trying to figure how to get all 50 states unified under the same rules so that all state champions can compete for the Ultimate Cup (temporary name) This would involve all high school teams to play a 20 game schedule within their state and then the state champion (determined by playoffs of course!) would go to a regional semi-finals and compete for the Ultimate Cup. Imagine 50 teams battling it out for the ultimate bragging rights for one year. I am not looking for any money I am just looking to get everyone on the same playing field so that we can grow this sport to new heights. I am trying to build a professional level to the game as well as setting up semi-pro leagues in all the states. Any teams interested should send me an email with your information to [email protected] or you may contact me via telephone at 1-800-493-4988. I encourage all coaches, players and league organizes to contact me. The only way to help this sport grow is for all of us to work together. Hope to hear form you soon and Good Luck to all teams. Remember play hard but play smart.
