Street Hockey is also known as dek hockey, ball hockey and road hockey. The sport is a variation of ice hockey. The sport is played outdoors on foot or can be played using inline or roller skates. The ball and puck of street hockey are designed according to the non-ice surfaces. It is played by shooting the ball or puck into the opposing team’s net.
Street hockey is always played on an outdoor surface in its pure form. It is very often played on a street, parking lot, tennis court or the asphalt surface. It was believed that street hockey started when the roads were paved in the wealthy parts of North America. It was around 20th century. Street Hockey was then spread south to the United States. Children, teenagers and even all ice hockey players work on their skills by playing street hockey. They practice it often alone in driveways or out in the street in front of their houses.
