  • By Jeremy Ellis St. Louis is widely recognized as one of the preeminent roller hockey hotbeds and this past weekend did not disappoint.  From overtime game winners, to last second game tying goals, to highlight reel goals, this event had it all. At a one sheet facility it is hard to try and fit in all the games necessary for a big turnout.  With 30 teams competing in 7 divisions it made for some early mornings and late nights.  The atmosphere inside of the Matteson Tri Plex was electric and t

  • We wanted to take a quick moment this Sunday to recognize all of the hard work, the long drives, the early mornings, the stinky houses and cars, the financial commitment, and last but not least all of the caring that a Hockey Mom gives! Without all of those awesome moms out there, our hockey world would be bleak; they are indeed a special breed.  I came from a single parent home and my mom did it all and without her I would have never discovered nor cherished all of the memories and great relat

  • By Jeremy Ellis There are a few things in life that one can count on and one of those are the early AM Sunday starts on a regional weekend.  The pee wee division played the last round robin game here this morning so we can now seed out that division.  Midgets have not completed so those seedings will take place later on after the 5:10 pm. Here is what we have on tap for today: ATOM Gold Final - Alkali Blast vs. Alkali Farm Tough Silver Final - MSG Demons vs. Des Moines Explosion MITE Silver se

  •         By Jeremy Ellis Saturday morning here at the Matteson Tri-plex and we have been rolling for a few hours now.  The squirt and mite divisions are center stage all morning as these divisions begin to round into shape during the round robin phase. Making the over 300 mile trek south this weekend are the Xplosion teams from Des Moines Iowa.  Rob Kooker was instrumental in bringing atoms, mites, and squirts here to test their skills in Missouri.  The mite Xplosion alread

  • By Jeremy Ellis Back in the "Lou" for this weekends NARCh regional.  The temps are warm but it is soggy outside, but that hasn't stopped the 'World's Best Roller Hockey' from reigning supreme at the Matteson Tri-Plex this weekend.  Seven divisions overall have laced up the skates on a big sports weekend here in Missouri.  The Cards are on taking on the division rival Pirates and the hockey eyes of St. Louis will be glued to the Ducks / Flames game tonight with longtime NARCh player Pat Maroon

  • By Matthias Rottcher The Namib Sidewinders team is a private incentive from a group of parents from Namibia who wanted to give their kids international exposure in Inline Hockey at a young age. Namibia is a very small country with a population of about 2.3 million people. Most of the Namib Sidewinders are from either Swakopmund (Population 45 000) or Otjiwarongo (Population 21 000). There are about 500 registered roller hockey players of all age divisions in Namibia, which gives us very little

  • By Lonny Lovins:  We wrapped up Irvine on Sunday with the Pro Final ending the festivities.  It was a long weekend, but a great weekend.  It was a lot of fun watching the teams from around the area tangle with teams that had to travel from afar.  In the end, we saw a lot of great games, from the Cubs, all the way to the Pro Division.  Hopefully I will be able to capture the essence of excitement that this tournament provided with my game write ups.  Here we go!  CUB Division - The

  • By Lonny Lovins  We are sprinting to the finish here in Irvine, after a delayed start to our morning.  We had a little condensation drip onto the floor, which made us start a little late.  Thanks to the amazing staff here at the Rinks, we were up and going with minimal delay.  On that note, I have to say, that the staff here in Irvine is some of the best that we have to work with.  They are always there at a moment’s notice to help with any issues that we have.  They have a top notch
