What is Street Hockey?

Also known as ball hockey, Street Hockey is played in tennis shoes as opposed to skates and uses a ball instead of a puck. Street hockey is a great way for players to work on their hand eye coordination, stick handling, and conditioning while still enjoying the sport of hockey. The leagues are open to players of all skill levels and are a great way for first time players to experience the sport. No previous hockey experience is necessary to play!
