IN LINE HOCKEY COURT RESURFACING (HOCKEY RESURFACING)

Inline roller hockey is a variety of hockey that’s trending across the nation with participants of all ages. It’s fast-paced, with five members per team that’s played using inline skates on a smooth, hard surface. The object of the game is for the player to shoot a strong, plastic puck into their opponent’s goal.

In order to score points, inline hockey players play rough, often beating up each other, as well as the court. This aggressive style of play can cause extensive damage to an inline hockey court’s surface. If your court is worn out, cracked, uneven, or in need of repair, let Sport Surfaces solve the problem for you.

Our professional court technicians have decades of knowledge and experience in the sports construction industry. We can perform an outdoor inline hockey court resurfacing for both private residences and community facilities.

Inline hockey courts endure severe abuse from both the roller hockey player, as well as outdoor environmental elements. The roller hockey skates, impact of the player’s sticks, and the hockey pucks can result in minor or major surface damage.

Inline roller hockey players require an extremely hard and durable surface for both recreational and tournament play. It’s crucial the court’s surface provides a safe, smooth skating area at all times for game play.

Hockey courts will typically last approximately 4-6 years. Eventually, they start to fade, crack, and peel due to the sun’s UV rays and water damage. Another problem that can arise on the entire court area is court depressions, (low lying areas that collect water). If your inline hockey court is exhibiting these issues, it is in need of repair. The weather can wreak havoc on a court, so it is imperative to allow a professional to perform the necessary maintenance.

Hockey resurfacing options:

  • ADDING AN ASPHALT LAYER:  Most hockey courts can be repaired then resurfaced, but some will need a layer of asphalt. Depending on the existing court’s condition, Sport Surfaces can resurface a hockey court in 5-7 days, weather permitting.
  • OUTDOOR BASKETBALL COURT CONVERSION:  We can convert your outdoor basketball court into an inline hockey court too. This resurfacing creates a multi- sport court through the process of adding lines for an inline hockey court.
  • ADVANTAGES OF A MULTI SPORT COURT: Your community facility can attract more athletes with the allure of multiple sport game courts. These multi-sport courts are perfectly designed for both for recreational play and/or tournaments.

Some inline hockey courts may need to be re-asphalted or have a fiberglass membrane installed over the entire skating surface. As a general guideline, the more problems a hockey court’s surface has, the greater the repair expenses will be (i.e. cracks, birdbaths etc.).
Note: Please remember that as your hockey court ages, you will most likely get cracks and small puddles in the surface.

 

Types of damage an inline hockey court sustains:

  • CRACKS:  If you have very large cracks or multiple cracks all over, you may want to consider re-asphalting. If the cracks are reasonably sized, you will want to fill them. We use top quality crack fillers when repairing your court’s surface.
  • PUDDLES: Puddles are fairly easy to fix, contingent upon their location. Small puddles are usually left alone and there is also a general disregard for puddles in the non-playing surface area.
  • QUALITY OF THE SURFACE: If the surface is peeling where cracks in the court are located, it is usually left alone. Sometimes, water can get under the court’s surface and cause it to peel up.
  • ASPHALT DETERIORATION: If the surface is peeling in other spots, it may be because the asphalt is deteriorating. This problem could be caused by water coming up through the asphalt (poor drainage). If the court’s drainage system under the court is failing, water will deteriorate the asphalt.

How to prepare for the resurfacing of the hockey court?

Some may need to be re-asphalted or have a fiberglass membrane installed over the entire skating surface. As a rule of thumb the more problems with the surface of the hockey court the more it will cost to repair it.(cracks, birdbaths etc.)

 *Remember that no hockey court is perfect, and you will most likely get cracks and small puddles in the surface only getting worse with time.

  • How bad are the cracks? Is there a lot of cracks? If you have very large cracks or there are cracks all over the place. You may want to consider re-asphalting. If the cracks are reasonable they you will want to fill them. See filling cracks.
  • Are there any puddles in the surface? Puddles are fairly easy to fix. Small puddles are usually left alone and puddles in the non playing surface are usually less cared for.
  • How poor the original surface is? Is the surface peeling? If the surface is peeling at the cracks, it is usually OK. What happens is water gets under the surface and peels it up. If the surface is peeling in other spots it may be because the asphalt is deteriorating. This could be caused by water coming up through the asphalt. (poor drainage). If the courts drainage system under the court is failing water will deteriorate the asphalt.
