Beginner Street Hockey at Heritage Park (Gym Shoes, No Skates)

Please do NOT be intimidated.  Some of us have little or no experience, often the last time we played was in middle school or high school!  But some of the people who show up are pretty good, so they help the less-skilled players and help us make it a real game.  Everyone has the attitude that we're out there to have fun and get exercise, and it's been a blast.

I have some extra sticks and balls, so don't let your lack of equipment stop you!

We meet every Saturday, depending on weather and interest. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns! The hockey rink is the first thing you see as you drive into the park, before the bathrooms, splash park, jungle gyms, etc.

    Hi Monica, I save the fancy composite sticks for ice hockey. For street hockey, the pavement will scrape the bottom of your blade and it will wear an ice hockey stick down quickly. I go with a plastic stick that you can pick up for $15-20 at Dicks/Dunhams/etc. No need to use the sticks of the pros, we just like to have fun!

    I am NOT the expert, so maybe someone else can also respond,but yes, I think composite is what's recommended for street hockey.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
