Road Hockey

Road hockey is a translation of roller or ice hockey which is played with using skates or without using skates. This game is also called as dek hockey, street hockey, ball hockey and ground hockey. The player can play this game with a ball or puck whereas a roller hockey puck is needed when the player is not playing on the ice.

This game is played with no defensive equipment and no physical contact is required and can be played with the checking of the body. An ice hockey puck only works on ice instead of a street. When a puck is used for protection, then it should not be lifted in the air. The playing styles and rules can vary from state to state which depends on the customs made by a certain group.
