Liga Nacional Argentina-Serie A1

 The best Roller Hockey League in America has already started.
One of the best Roller Hockey schools of the World is the Argentinian, so there are a lot of good players trying their opportunity during the Serie A1. This Championship is divided in 2 groups, the first with 6 teams and the second with 7, coming from 3 different states:

As I refer some days the concentration of Roller Hockey Sport just in some States in Argentina is the biggest reason, to justify why it isn't a national sport. A promotion work in other states should be done, and is very important that the FIRS World Cup can be transmitted on the Public TV Channel.

Hockey in Angola is not just in Luanda

Ferroviário do Namibe was "inter-provincial" Champion last weekend.
Organized by "Porto Comercial do Namibe" (Namibe Comercial Harbor) the tournament was played by 4 teams comming from the South part of Angola.
The final rank of the Tournament was:
  1.  Ferroviário do Namibe 
  2. Casa Pessoal do Porto de Lobito
  3. Juventude da Huila
  4. Atlético do Namibe
The final between Ferroviário do Namibe and Casa Pessoal do Porto de Lobito was 4-1, while the 3rd position match between Juventude da Huila and Atlético do Namibe was 5-2.

One of the main goals to organize this tournament was to improve the competitive level of players that will play next July in Regional Championship.
It is prepared a promotion of Roller Hockey in 4 different cities: Tômbwa, Bibala Camucuio and Virei.

The coach of Casa Pessoal do Porto do Lobito, Correia Jamba, also told that hockey is evolute in south part of Angola, country where the main teams come from Luanda.
Not just in Angola but also in important countries like Spain and Argentina one of the big problems is that Roller hockey concentrates just in some parts of the country, like Catalonia (Spain), and San Juan (Argentina). The promotion is an important step to spread Roller Hockey in the World, allowing the massification of this beautiful sport.

Haka soon in 2011 FIRS World Cup U-20??

Haka Performance in 2010 FIRS B World Cup, in Austria
Our posts about Roller Hockey in countries where it hasn't to much important yet, continue. Today I am writing about the "Haka Country", New Zealand.
Seems that also there, Roller Hockey is growing up, due to a better organization and promotion.
New Zealand national team was part of last B World Cup, in Dornbirn, Austria, and finished in 9th position.
They had some good results, but of course, they need to continue with the work.
One of the biggest problems is the lack of teams to compete, so one of the solutions is the organization of tournaments with Australian teams, like Australasian Club Champions (should be good to see in this competition also Asian teams, from Japan, Macao...)

Papatoetoe in 2010 was the New Zealand and Australasian Champion.
The next tournament in 2011 will be the Ian Mackie / Noel Monks Memorial Cup between 4-6th of June in Kilbernie Recreation Centre Wellington.

All of Roller Hockey fans would like to see one day New Zealand playing A World Cup, but for this a lot of promotion and school base program must be done. New Zealand is not registered yet in 2011 FIRS World Cup U-20 to be hosted in Barcelos, Portugal, and this Championship could be a good opportunity to their young players have contact with the best roller hockey of the World.

To show a little bit of New Zealand Roller Hockey, watch the next video report abou it:

Belgium playing Roller Hockey Again

In 21th and 22th Belgium will host again a Roller Hockey Tournament.
Although it is a Veteran tournament for players with more than 35 years old, can show to young people of Belgium, the quality of a sport like roller hockey. 
Probably most of Roller Hockey fans don't know that Belgium had some tradition of Roller Hockey, and suddenly due some reasons, disappeared from this sport (just some veterans keep playing it).
For example Belgium has a 2nd place in 1947 World/Euro Cup, a 2nd place of 1984 B World Cup, a 3rd place of 1938 Euro Cup and a Nations Cup conquered in 1951.

The teams to play in this Tournament will be:CP Roubaix (FRA), Agor (NED), EHRC Marathon (NED), REV Heilbronn (BEL), Kurink H.C.(BEL).
Tournament Program: http://www.rollerbond.be/docs/Tornooi%20Kurink%20HC%202011%20-%20programma.pdf

If you have any important information (info,photos,videos) write us please.
We would like to see Belgium Rolling Again, but for this something should be done! CERH and CIRH could help the federation, and also NRBB (Dutch Roller Hockey Association) that is doing some Roller Hockey Clinics in Netherlands. Taking advantage of the distance between Netherlands and Belgium, the cooperation could be decisive to reborn again Roller Hockey in Belgium.

Roller Hockey Live on TV is possible

By: Tiago Silva (Best Hoquei Blog)
All the World Roller Hockey Fans know that one of the more important problems of our sport, is the lack of TV transmissions.
Usually the argument is that Roller Hockey is not attractive, the ball is to small...
As we know this is not true and now was proved by Porto Canal/MediaPro director Juan Figueroa Boullosa, in declarations to Mundo do Hóquei.
At last weeks they have been doing weekly transmissions of Portuguese League, He says that "Roller Hockey works good on TV, against what some people usually says. In Portugal is a very famous sport, that has market.Next season is not sure if Porto Canal will keep or not Roller Hockey transmissions.MediaPro is producing these matches cooperating with TA Sport, that got a good advertisement support.
To complete he says:"It is important to refer that without enterprise support, there's not hockey on TV."

Read the Complete News at http://www.mundook.net/news/5003-hoquei-em-patins-e-uma-aposta-ganha.html

This is one more good news, proving that Roller Hockey has everything to be a Top Sport.
Next days a big Roller Hockey TV transmission, will be done from Andorra. Will be the best Club's Roller Hockey Tournament, European League Final 8. There will be links to watch Live on Rolling Together.

Good Hope to African Roller Hockey

Seems that CIRH is doing some efforts to support Roller Hockey.
During the Nations Cup in Montreux, Switzerland were approved the foundation of  CIRH Sub Committee – “Development of Africa”. The document of CIRH (press here to see) says this:
"Dear Sirs and friends;

CIRH Executive Committee has the pleasure to nominate the members of the
CIRH Sub Committee “Development of Africa”:
1. Mr. Carlos Alberto Jaime Pinto (President of FAP – Angola)
2. Mr. Nicolau Manjate (President of FMP – Mozambique)
3. Mr. Joaquim Coimbra (President FSAHP – South Africa)
4. Mr. Pedro Azevedo (Vice President FAP – Angola)
With sportive regards
Harro Strucksberg
CIRH President"

One of the targets of  CIRH Sub Committee is the introduction of Roller Hockey in another African countries, something there should start in my opinion in Namibia, where Inline Hockey is played.
Also there's a Sudan player in Egypt that would like to introduce the sport in his country, so...
Le's put Africa to Roll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Rolling Together reported in MundoOK

    After two days since the start of this blog, seems that this project is getting popular, and was already reported in one of the best roller hockey news website of the World, the Portuguese Mundo do Hóquei.
    I would like to say thanks to Nelson Alves and Pedro Alves to the relevance that are giving to the Blog.
    Furthermore I would like to ask for help of everybody, that can help me with more info, videos and news.

    Together we can do better things!!

    A Gift for Roller Hockey Lovers

    Is because of videos like these that I still believe that Roller Hockey is one of the best Sports of the World, and just due to some people and some mistakes, it is not in a best position. The first one is the Epic match between Vilanova and Olivenrense to CERS Cup, that Vilanova won for 5-1. The second and third are a Marketing Campaign that Vilanova is doing during this week to promote the Final 4 of CERS Cup to be held next weekend in Vilanova.
    Watch and Enjoy!!
