Balls and pucks for roller hockey
Is Street Hockey Played With a Ball?
If you want to play street hockey, you can use either a puck or street hockey ball. The goal can be improvised, but it’s rather hard to play without anything to hit with the hockey sticks.
There is a wide variety of hockey balls that are suitable for street hockey, but there are big differences in the weight and hardness of the different balls. If you choose to play with a street hockey ball, you have to consider what weather you will be playing in.
The temperature has a big influence on how bouncy the ball will be but also determines how much the ball will stick to the underlay and your hockey stick. If you are playing in very cold weather you have to choose a soft ball, but if you are going to primarily play in hot summer weather you will have to go for a very hard ball. In general, street hockey balls are the best option if you plan to play on rough concrete or asphalt.
On the other hand, pucks for street hockey are generally lighter versions of their ice hockey counterparts. They are made of lightweight plastic to help them slide over smooth concrete and indoor surfaces.
