  • Another solid weekend of NARCh Hockey in the books as we make our only trip to Pennsylvania in the 2013.  It was a great time and we saw a ton of great hockey.  I’m excited to put this video highlight together, as I was lucky to capture some great moments throughout the event. It’s always nice seeing my friends here in the East, sharing a few laughs and talking shop.  Almost everyone is pumped for Toronto and planning on attending the FINALS that are creeping up on us quickly about 10

  • We are definitely in the heart of our travel season.  Last week we were on Hawaiian time, 6 hours different then where we are now in Pennsylvania.  Next week we’re back on Cali time for our largest regional event of the year in Irvine where we’ll cram about 225 games into 3 days.I was looking forward to coming to this event for multiple reasons.  Most of the teams playing in this qualifier will be making the trip up to Canada for the FINALS, so I wanted to see them play and make sure they

  • by Lonny LovinsAs we head into day 3 of our NARCh regional here in Hawaii, we have a lot going on.  The Yoder brothers are chasing immortality as they work hard at cementing their place in NARCh history by chasing the one gold medal that has eluded them…The coveted 35+ championship.   On a more serious note, the work that has been done with the Hawaiian teams thanks to Jami and his crew here has been phenomenal.  The systems that have been put into place will help hockey here grow for many

  • This month we’re all over the map with our events, racking up the frequent flier miles.Next weekend we’re in Hawaii.  I know, tough right?  This is our 4th year at the Kapolei Inline Hockey Arenas and it’s our largest tournament there to date with 43 teams competing in every division from 8u to 35 and over.   We’d like to thank the Southern Stars coming all the way from Australia with 7 teams and a large entourage of 120 strong. On April 20th-21st we travel to Broomall, PA to Marple

  • We all know that roller hockey is an awesome sport that helps translate to sharper skills on the ice.  We still run into some hard-headed people that are in denial, or newer players and parents that just don't realize the benefits of roller hockey and how fun it is in it's own right.  Hopefully this little campaign will help.  If you run a league, you can email daryn@narch.com and we'll send you a jpeg so you can add your league specifics at the bottom.   Also, if you are going to print this

  • We had three regional qualifying tournaments this weekend in San Jose, Raleigh, and Colorado Springs.  Mike Vickerman is from Colorado, so it made the most sense to let him stay in his home state and work that event.  Unfortunately he came down the flu, but still battled through it and represented NARCh at SIHA. Alex and Itan traveled across the country to North Carolina.  From the looks of it online they had a lot of fun and ran a great tournament.I was fortunate enough to catch what was su

  • We had a great time this weekend at Dreamsports Center in North Carolina.  A special thanks to Steve and his staff, as they had things buttoned up for us once we got here.  They run this rink very well!NARCh Cub Division – All of the players 6 and under that play at the rink came for a mini tournament, where they split into 3 teams.  They all played in 3 games, and had a great time doing it (but you have to take a look at the pictures on the Facebook page… the kids are really cute, and so

  • by Alex Morrison When you think of the Carolinas in the spring, you might have visions of serenity, flowers starting to bloom, quiet breezes blo.... yeah, we have none of that here!  This is a NARCh Qualifier weekend, and we have just the opposite.  It is 9am, we are into our 3rd game on each rink, music is blasting, people are screaming, kids are skating... yeah, no peace and quiet here! The Cub (6u) Division started this morning, with some really awesome kids excited to hit the floor.  They

  • by Alex Morrison It is almost the end of a long day here in the Raleigh area, and we have seen a day full of a combination of close games and lopsided ones.  We know that tomorrow's playoff games will have a much better chance of being close, as some of the teams that had a tougher time today will face off against one another trying to make their respective divisions' Silver Final. Itan had written about the other divisions earlier, but now the Pee Wee (14u) and the combined Midget/Men's Divisi

  • By Alvin Do San Jose Mid-Day Update One year ago today was when I started working for NARCh and what a year it has been. I remember I was sitting here in thus very seat typing away my first blog for the NARCh.com website. In the last year I can reflect on my experiences and say that they were memorable. It has been a privilege to contribute to such a great organization. With that being said, the atmosphere in San Jose is electric, great hockey being played on three rinks, food smells absolu
