Sports Sunday - Street Hockey
Sunday, Jun 12 2011 by kjfitz
Street hockey (also known as road hockey, dek hockey, ground hockey, or ball hockey) is a variation of the sport of hockey where the game is played on foot or with inline skates or roller skates. The object of the game is to score more goals than the opposing team by shooting a ball or puck into the opposing team's net. In its most pure form, street hockey is always played on an outdoor surface (very often a street, parking lot, or other asphalt surface), thus the genesis of the name street hockey.
