Life is like that, and one of the best ways to accelerate the learning time is sharing ideas and knowledge concerning roller hockey.
This work has been done since sometime in countries where this sport is played.
For example a national coach that come from another country, as happen in Angola, Brazil, England, South Africa..

Usually the main coach's exporters are Porugal and Catalonia. For example Catalonian Roller Sports Federation has an exchange program to send coaches to other countries to help the develop of roller hockey.

Also during the Brazilian Championship "Esport Clube Corrêas" had in their constitution three Portuguese that are living in Rio de Janeiro, and were invited to play for Corrêas side.
The last example is the travel of school or senior teams to other countries, where young players can share experiences with other players from different parts of the world.
Almost all the young tournaments are international, receiving also foreign teams.

The part of the world where this exchange is less observed is Asia. Beyond Asia Cup, there's no more exchange activity. But a hopeful news comes from India and Pakistan, because for the first time, a Pakistan team will compete in an Indian national tournament, Federal Roller Hockey Premier League. Also the participation of the Argentinian club, Parana Rowing Club at this tournament seems like an excellent news to Asian Roller Hockey.
As the name of this blog says Rolling Together is fundamental to improve the quality of our sport, and spread it in other countries. So if you are a coach, a player, a fan, when you travel/work in other region, think before to contact possible roller hockey clubs or players to teach, learn or just play there for a while...
Roller Hockey needs your help!!!
