    Pakistan National Roller Hockey Championship

    2nd Edition of All Pakistan Roller Skating Championship

    National championship is going to happen in Lahore from 26th to 29th December 2011.

    The amount of information received until now, it's small. Although it is confirmed the presence of teams from 3 of the total 4 provinces of Pakistan:

    The unique Province not presented will be Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Otherwise there are no information about the quantity of teams coming from each province.

    Our blog suspects that probably Punjab team will be the same than Jinnah Sports Club, which competed last October month in Roller Hockey Premier League in India.
    To remember the team was composed by the next players/staff:

    Group Leader
    T. Manager
    T. Coach

    After some years without national competition, this will be one more great challenge to Pakistan.
    In other hand Pakistan will prepare it players to the 15th Asian Cup.

     This is a great opportunity to promote roller hockey in Pakistan.It would be good if Asian Confederation, CIRH and FIRS could help this countries with the developing of Roller Hockey.

    We would like to receive more and more information about this competition and in general, roller hockey in Pakistan

    Who says that Women don't play Roller Hockey in Italy???

    They didn't give up
    One of the reasons advanced in 1992 to no continue with Roller Hockey in Olympic Games was the fact of not existence a solid women's roller hockey system. Thus international federations did efforts to change all this situation an start women's international competitions of roller hockey. In 1988, CERH organized a first tournament in Eldagsen (Germany), before the first official one to happen lately in 1991. At this time Italy appeared as one of main and strongest teams, having this curriculum: 
    • 2x European Championships (1991, 1993) 
    • 2x vice World Championship  
    • 2x vice European Championships (1995, 1997)   
    • 1x third position in European Championship (2001)  
      After all these successes, the participation of Italy in international competitions, stopped in 2006, being the last appearence in Chile's World Cup, where was ranked as 11th classified. Nowadays seems that Italian Federation has abandoned the women's project in our sport. Althought the passion for it didn't disappeared and this year there's a female team playing at the Juniors U-17 Championship against boys teams. The Roller Bassano Grapa gives the opportunity to all these women's to play their favorite sport. Another example of womens persistence in Italian roller hockey, was one reported last year in Italian media, about a young girl that was taking part of Corregio team.
    Playing for the U-17 Championhip
    The team is composed by 7 players: 
    • Laura MINUZZO (#6)  
    • Maria CRIVELLARO (#5)  
    • Elena TOFFANIN (#9)  
    • Giulia GRENDENE (#3)  
    • Stefania MENIN (#23) Goalkeeper 
    • Paola ZOLIN (#59) Goalkeeper 
    • Sara BROTTO (#2).
    and has as responsible Claudia SCRIMIN and Alessandro MILANI "Bibi" .
    They know how to defend
     Rolling Together is sure that like these women's in Bassano de la Grappa, could exist more in Italy, which would like to play an Italian League just for ladies. Of course, this depends of FIHP (Italian Federation of Roller Hockey). So it's time to have again Ragazzas in European and World Roller Hockey.

CERH using the rules of this competition, said that Liceo doesn't have reason, so they must be punished with a money payment, and probevly will be forbidden to take part in next European Competitions between 1 and 3 years.
    Although Liceo doesn't agree with CERH's decision about Continental Cup, and yesterday advance with a press conference (watch the video)

    RC Lichstad Beker Champion after 9 years

    Historical (
    Surprising Dutch roller hockey world RC Lichstad was for the 7th time Beker Champion. The second most important competition in Netherlands, with more than 50 years, was hosted in Eidhoven in 27th November. With the participation of 6 teams: edrc AGOR, ehrc MARATHON, Zaanse Roller Club, RC Brunssum, RC de Lichtstad, Valkenswaardse RC.
    In the last 10 years VRC has dominating this competition like the Dutch League also, and had conquered 6 titles. This year everybody was expecting a re edition of VRC victory, but RC Lichstad won in the final.
    The results were the follow:

    1st Phase
    edrc AGOR - ehrc MARATHON 2 - 3
    Zaanse Roller Club - RC Brunssum 6 - 4

    Semi Finals:

    17.15  RC de Lichtstad  - Valkenswaardse RC  14 - 9

    This competition ends the Roller Hockey year in Netherlands, after one year full of events that try to put again this country in Europe Roller Hockey map. Just to remember the Dutch year had it big moment in San Juan with a participation in World Cup. Unhappily any youth team took part in both young competitions taking place this year in Barcelos (U20 FIRS World Cup) and Geneva (U17 CERH Euro Cup), but a great program of Youth Clinics in some cities was a great success.
    All roller hockey fans wish that next year this situation can continue, and Netherlands could be part of European/World Youth Cups, and also a special one, Netherlands can help the renaissance of roller hockey in Belgium, and who knows in Luxembourg!!!
