|SCOTTISH 3ON3 INLINE HOCKEY LEAGUE|
S3IHL FIRST TOURNAMENT DETAILS
29th October 2014
31st July 2014

As you will have noticed, the SURHL is being rebranded as the Scottish 3on3 Inline Hockey League (S3IHL). Firstly, we are rebranding the sport as "inline hockey" as it should be. This puts us in-line (haha) with BIPHA (British Inline Puck Hockey Association). Once again, we are not affiliated with BIPHA and we are not competing against BIPHA, but rather providing a framework for non-BIPHA teams. I would recommend all teams involved, that if they feel they are going to be competitive in BIPHA that they pursue that league, as it is a much higher level.
Similarly, I can not turn away teams/players who have already played with us. For those teams in Dundee and Glasgow that have been involed in both BIPHA and the SURHL, I am not interested in turning them away after having been in the fold for the last year or more.
Moving forward, we are in contact with teams from both Aberdeen and Dunoon and the Scotland Womens BIPHA squad (a BIPHA exemption), and are greatly looking forward to getting them involved in the league. Both are relatively new teams and vary in experience and skill level.
If there are any players out there who know of other teams wanting to play a little bit more competitively, even in spite of their skill level, please email me with details so I may contact them.

We have now reached a new point in our league format for 3 reasons:
I have therefore decided to rebrand and recast this league under the following:
The Scottish 3on3 Inline Hockey League is now in its first year, migrating from 8 years as the Scottish Universities Roller Hockey League.
The league plays a tournament schedule [4 this year], is run entirely by university students & alumni, and has no sports union funding whatsoever.
Roller hockey is a relatively rare sport in the UK. It is played indoors, with a puck. It is a contact sport, although there is no checking. It is a fast and aggressive sport much like ice hockey but in a much smaller surface. All games are 3-on-3.
If you have any experience playing roller hockey or would like to take it up, please refer to your local team through the contacts page.
