Roller hockey club looks to take the next step

Although word all around campus has spread that the roller hockey club is now a team, the rumors are false.

“We are an intramural and recreational team that plays for fun. They are just a bunch of guys that get together in the gym and play against each other, and occasionally go to other colleges to play against them,” Dr. Tony Verde, professor of exercise science and health promotion, said.

Verde, who also serves as the club’s adviser, said that in order to become a full-time competitive team, there was much paperwork that needed to be fulfilled before taking any other steps.

The roller hockey club has been around for two years and is a part of the Philadelphia Collegiate Roller Hockey League. Its goal is to be a part of the East Coast Roller Hockey League, but there is not enough money to become a traveling team and join the ECRHL.

“It definitely won’t happen this year and personally I’m not sure about even next year. I know some schools give their teams money to play in the ECRHL, but I have no idea what our school does regarding budgets and things of that nature,” Dave Arnold, junior said.

However, Athletic Director Leslie Danehy expresses a form of optimism by saying that any club has the potential to become a team.

“They are going to be very active this year and I think that any club that shows that much enthusiasm is going to go a long way,” Danehy said.
