most natural game ever invented for inline skates. Sure it sounds crazy,
it looks crazy, and people think players must be crazy, but the degree
of ball control you can develop is amazing. It's actually easy to play,
but difficult to master.
One of the
greatest things about playing this new sport is that today's players are
shaping RollerSoccer forever. New moves and strategies are being developed
and refined constantly. Many moves have been named after the players who
have invented them.
Novice skaters, especially soccer players, catch on quickly because RollerSoccer is the perfect way to learn skate skills. Since the objective is the ball and your means are the wheels, your body learns skate without your brain (anxiety, fear) getting in the way. Soccer players also have the benefit of substantial eye-foot coordination and knowledge of the game.
Experienced skaters, especially hockey players, also learn quickly. Fitness, speed and stunt skaters capitalize on their balance and maneuverability while developing their ball control. Hockey players also benefit from their familiarity with the flow and strategies of 5 v 5 competition.
it is the athletes which have/develop all these skills who excel. Quick
and fluid starts, stops, and turns; along with passing and shooting accuracy;
and, of course, strategic thinking and vision make for top players. But
there is less catching up to do than for many other sports.
You might begin practicing with friends or on your own, but sooner or later you'll be looking for better places to play and more people to play with. The RSIF can help with this too. Go to our locations for information on how to let others know you're playing and how to find other players.
