A Little History ….. on Skate Victoria’s Shed in
Skate Victoria is the “ONLY State Body for Roller Sports in AUSTRALIA”, that has their own training venue. ‘The Shed’ is located within the Dandenong Show Grounds complex.
Roller Hockey, first saw the benefits of utilizing the shed over 25 years ago, as a training facility & arranged to put the concrete rink floor down in the shed.
In the years to follow, Peter Boehm from Dandenong Roller Hockey Club,spent countless hours on improvements to the Shed.
In 2011, Victorino Rodrigues, former Skate Victoria President, saw a need to again lease the venue and as a result of his VISION :-
The Shed is now used by many roller sports groups (disciplines) daily, all year round & provides a facility for club training, workshops, boot camps, Junior development (Roller Derby, Roller Hockey & shortly Inline Hockey) as well as the annual roller hockey Tournament, The 2018 Australia Day Roller Hockey Cup.
