What is Roller Soccer?

Created in 1990 in San Francisco, Roller Soccer or Roller-foot is a derivative of football which is played with rollerblades .

A sport of balance , speed and tactics , Roller Soccer is the perfect mix between football , ice hockey and rollerblades .

This game will surprise you because you will progress in rollerblading without necessarily realizing it.

Your reactions will become faster and changes of direction , reversals , avoidance , braking will no longer hold any secrets for you...

On the other hand, for footballers , the sensations will be very different from football .

It will be difficult for you to lift or control the ball because in roller skating you will not have much support.

Notice to the brave who will attempt a volley ...

How to play Roller Soccer?

First of all, you must have a good level of rollerblading .

This will allow you to get started quickly and focus on the game and your team .

Because we must not forget that Roller Soccer is also a team sport !

Having team spirit , following tactics , anticipating opposing actions and counter-attacking are part of the game .

In terms of rules , the objective is very simple: score as many goals as possible !

But there are some particularities compared to classic football :

  • A game lasts twice 25 minutes ;
  • Teams are made up of 5 to 10 players and substitutions are unlimited ;
  • The ground, made of tar, must preferably be closed;
  • You can play using the bounce of the ball against the walls ;
  • The goalkeeper cannot stop the ball with his hands but only with his feet ;
  • Throw-ins and corners are not permitted;
  • Tackles are prohibited;
  • Free kicks and penalties are played like football ;
  • Be careful of yellow cards and red cards because the contacts are a little rough...

Fair play and speed will therefore be present in your Roller Soccer games and fun is guaranteed !

So what are you waiting for, put on your skates and chase your ball ?
