I am looking for a piece of information: does someone know how many people are playing roller hockey ?
(ideally I would like to know the worldwide count of people playing with pucks, on concrete; but it's ok if you tell me that there is XXX people in the US federation)
That's for a school study, dealing with pucks creation. One free über-puck for the most accurate answer =)
See ya in the streets
If you got an ass, I'll kick it
call the guys at USA Hockey InLine, and AAU...they'll each give you an answer...almost every tournament series/organization, except TORHS and AAU, has their program underwritten by USA Hockey InLine, so their numbers would include all players except those who only play in AAU and/or TORHS...
You won't get an accurate estimate on this, just the best guess available.
Internationally, the waters become even murkier...I imagine that dealing with FIRS and IIHF would be even more vague and approximate than the two U.S. organizations...
For what it's worth, my personal estimate is about 600,000 players worldwide...
