We need these pro leagues to go! I am 15 and there is so much talent in my area and by the time some of these kids are 17, 18 they will have no where to go but long island or aneheim to play inline hockey. Or stay here and play in saturday morning leagues. Some rink owners from my area got rink owners of other roller hockey leagues and had a nationals tryout. It was great to play with some of the kids from the other side of the city. We went to nationlas and we won. It remeined me of that 1980 HBO usa hockey special. We wernt even expected to make the playoff. What im saying is all this young talent is being wasted by criticism. If someone sets thier mind to it a franchise player will come along and promote the sport greatly. All we need to do is get a league off the ground.
Re: Pro Leagues
There are talks going right now with a rink on Long Island who is looking to field a team to compete nationally in some of the leagues. Keep your ears peeled.
