Welcome to Roller Hockey
The fast-paced sport of Roller Hockey is experiencing rapid growth which plays out of SV Rink Dandenong & Skateworld Mordialloc. Roller Hockey is a test of skill, rather than physicality. There’s no rough contact, players give up fouls like basketball for major contact. A league competition is held throughout the year for both Junior and Seniors. Over the Australia Day week-end players from across the globe compete for the coveted Australia Day Cup held at SV Rink Dandenong – Dandenong Showgrounds – Greaves Reserve.
