Default Question for inline players

Have you ever played on "Ice Court"?

USARS is sending out a survey concerning Rink Hockey Nationals being played on Ice Court or Concrete this year in Albuquerque.

The ice court was used in 2013 and got some bad reviews.



Do softer wheels hook up on Ice Court or is it just slick?

Can you state your question with a little more detail? I do not fully understand what you are saying -- on ice court???


I learn and play inline hockey since I was 19 years old. I do not play ice hockey only because the price is way to much, not I cannot play. I did try out stick and shoot on ice, but I do not like to be restricted in the practice time, the playing time, and the playing location, also the fee to play/practice, so I only play inline hockey.

sport court (tiles) are not generally slippery, but they seem to attract more dust and contaminants. Have used Labeda addictions on it during nationals and they were great, but they work everywhere so its no real comparison. The rink rat XXX's were OK but nothing compared to the addictions.

I've played about 50% on the ice court and 50% on concrete. I'd slightly favor the ice court, but hear me out.
The key is keeping them clean. A dirty, dusty, or wet concrete surface accounts for several burns and scars I've received in my life. A dirty, or dusty ice court surface accounts for the same. I've noticed a slight bit more give on the ice court as far as traction goes, but you can easily adjust to that and even use it to your advantage. I realized that you could get some fancy little slides going that other players weren't expecting on the ice court surface if you ran harder wheels than might otherwise be expecting. Unfortunately, you have to then keep a mind that your hockey stops will slide significantly farther than you might otherwise expect. I ran 84A on concrete and icecourt, just played them a little different. (I was a speed demon and would sacrifice my stops just a little).
Now, one difference I already mentioned that you might have noticed. Water on an icecourt surface is hardly an issue. I would head down to the rink on a sunday afternoon to goof off even if it had been raining that morning. The ice court surface drained just dandily. Concrete could cause some issues.

TL;DR: keep 'em clean and dry, you'll manage just fine on either, as long as you've had a couple hours to get used to them.
