Roller Hockey Insurance
Accident Medical and General Liability Insurance for Roller Hockey Clubs, Events and Competitions.
Roller hockey is a form of hockey that is played on a dry surface using skates with wheels. Traditional roller hockey is played with quad roller skates (four wheels per skate), and inline hockey is played with inline skates. Most youth roller hockey teams play competitively in tournaments. Teams often travel to different tournament locations around their state and oftentimes travel out of state. Youth roller hockey is regarded as producing a higher incidence of injuries than ice hockey. The increased occurrence of injuries may be the result of differences in the skating surfaces and speed. In fact, according to a “Sports Medicine” article about inline skating injuries, there are more injuries recorded for inline skating than for skateboarding, ice hockey, lacrosse or rugby; and during the last decade, inline skating injuries have increased about six-fold in the U.S. Over a third of the injuries involved a fractured bone, and the wrist was the most common site of injury. Many head injuries sustained during inline skating were life-threatening and tended to be very costly and often caused long-term disabilities. Further the estimated yearly cost for medical treatment of inline skating injuries is nearly $5 billion in the U.S. These is most definitely an excellent reason to make sure that if you or your adolescent is involved in roller hockey, you are going to want to make sure that you are completely covered by Westpoint Insurance.
