History and Information About the Israel Association

The Roller Hockey sport was brought to Israel in 1957 by "a handful of fanatics " led by Mr. Aaron Jordan. Association was founded in 1973 organized skaters, who later grew and developed under the name Association of skates in Israel. Today the association appointed 800 members of skaters, registered 30 clubs and there are frames and many other smooth guidance and support union workers, Contributors skating sports development in the country, the four branches:International Roller Sports Federation and the European Confederation of Roller Skating. In Israel, the union recognized by the International Olympic Committee, others registered "Eilat", running a full professional cooperation with the Wingate Institute and is supported by the Ministry of Science Council of the gambling culture and sports.

As in other sporting events, we can talk about hundreds of years before our era. During the games ístmico Greco was played a sport, which threw the ball with a stick, similar to hockey. The remarkable discovery, made in Athens in 1922, he assumed that this sport comes from the East.

So testify seems an interesting sculpture, a bas-relief that appeared in a wall of containment building Temistocles made in the year 478 BC to protect that city from the Furies of Greek seas. In this bas-relief, which is an important addition in the history of this sport, listed as shown in the engraving, six athletes, the center made a good kick start, namely a "bully", while the other four, Two on each side, expecting the move.The Native Americans, both the North and the South, practiced for many centuries a sport similar. In some tribes the women playing. They have employed various kinds of balls and sticks, wooden balls, and others made of deer skin, and in addition to the wooden sticks were also used bone sticks, adorned with the most varied designs. Some clubs have curvature and other, longer, are straight. The targets consisted of two poles nailed at each end of the ground, with a separation of 50 and up to 200 meters. Sometimes they played without poles and enough to sign up somewhat the ball pass a line marked as the gatekeepers goal.

The Arabs have also had since time immemorial, a game similar to hockey, is "Kouros", which is played with a ball made of palm fibers tied with spelt and using a stick slightly curved at the end opposite the handle. And the Chileans "cineca", in which an unspecified number of players divided into two camps. Each is fitted with a curved stick at its end, used to throw a ball toward a given point, while the opposing side seeks to prevent it and make it happen contrary to the countryside.

According to a manuscript of Fitzstephen, hockey dates in England since 1175, little more or less. Certainly many objects are available to confirm this. In some windows of Canterbury and Gloucester cathedrals are painted figures representing even player: Canterbury has a stick in his right hand that supports field, and from Gloucester has caught the stick with both hands in attitude drive against the ball. These stained glass windows dating from the thirteenth century.

The English are derived from another hockey game Irish is called "hurley" and also "hurlino", a game that was practiced very hard with many players. The modern hockey made its appearance early in the second half of the nineteenth century, namely ago over a hundred years. Such as hockey was played on a field with a certain size, 150 by 84 yards, a rectangle whose side lines start at 21, 50 and 75 yards. The ball was 5 inches in diameter and weighing 7 ounces. Frames the two posts were separated from each other 21 feet, joined by a bar up to 8 feet above the ground. As can be seen, a large frame (6.40 by 2.44 meters). With such a size the first players had to mark many necessarily so.

Previously, teams were formed at random and did not represent any club or society.

In the year 1875 a company resident in London, called "The Men Hockey Association," that is, associations Men's Hockey, gave a good step to correct the old rules in plan to improve the game, reducing the field, the framework and the number of players, already set in eleven as in football. There was then a dozen clubs who practiced this sport, being the most important Blackheath, Molesey, Wimbledom, Earling, Surbiton, Teddington, Eliot Place School, Blackhead, and Trinity College, Cambridge.

The final step was given the January 16, 1886, in which the clubs mentioned were the Hockey Federation. It also considers this as the date of the creation of modern hockey. The 19 representatives of the eight clubs (three delegates were 3, and three others, 2) drafted the regulation, which was submitted and approved in the first special meeting of the Committee, on February 3 the same year in the Cannon Street Hotel, London. That regulation containing 19 articles, the original was 20 but was omitted on 19 on the duration of that game was 80 minutes.

History of skating

The story tells us about other inventors of wheels but in 1813 when Jean Garcin, built a wooden wheel that patents after two years with remarkable success. He created a School of Skating, but the practice of apprentices caused numerous accidents that prompted the closure of the school and its activities.

Another patent of a skid on wheels was filed by M. Petitbled in France in 1819. These skates were wheeled metal, wood or ivory, mounted under a wooden base with straps to hold the foot. The runners were from a single size and as the wheels were fixed, it was impossible to move by a curved line.

In 1823, in London, Robert John Tyers patented model "Rolito". The British patent office, "Rolito" was described as a "device to be attached to the shoes, boots or other item that covers the foot in order to move out of necessity or pleasure." This model was done with 5 wheels fixed line and was an event that soon attracted public attention. It soon emerged patented many models, each a little more sophisticated than its previous model.

Years later, in 1867, the invention of Jean Garcin was picked up by some British industrial previously perfected, as presented and explained at the World Fair in Paris. This project was patented in New York by James Leonard Plinton, with the coupling of a braking mechanism consisting of a rubber stick in the front.

Shortly after that skates were popularized Plimpton, track skating became meeting places.

In England, skating wheels furor was traditional in many places. But since many tracks were poorly maintained and regulated, the first wave of popularity did not last long.

In 1876 opens in Paris on first Skating Center as a fashionable sport and mounted with all kinds of luxuries and details to the delight

of the Parisian aristocracy, who took the sport as skating fashion. From that moment proliferated track skating across Europe. Germany had 50 tracks, 30 Great Britain and the United States began its expansion. Faced with this growth had to organize the skating and, for that reason, began to be born clubs and competitions. Edward Crawford was brought new ideas for Chicago sports competitions and practice among them the roller hockey.

In the year 1905 is based on the England AMATEUR HOCKEY ASSOCIATION, forerunner of skating at all levels, but in 1901 there were already teams which competed with each other but without playing. The first news of matches taking place between clubs from different countries dating from November 1910. Arguably, therefore, that England was the real birthplace of hockey in 1909 and began play in Kent County.

The skating was already a reality in three of its modalities (speed, artistic and hockey), but had to sort and organize the sport. In April 1924 met in Montreux (Switzerland) representatives of France, Germany, Britain and Switzerland, and founded the Federation Internationale du Patinage A caravan sites (FIPR), being named president of the same Swiss Fred Renkewitz, personage of great importance in dissemination of road hockey around the world.

The year 1946 was the Spanish Hockey Federation and skating and Spain debuted in international competitions in 1947 in a tournament held in Lisbon (Portugal).

Roller Hockey

Principles of roller hockey in the world. The roller hockey was born in Chicago, but in the first place that appeared hockey is a drawing carved in an Egyptian tomb in the Nile Valley. The first to touch an item on the skid was Hans Brinker, who devised i built the first round metal skid in the year 1733. These wheels were placed in a skid with metal rim created by Joseph Lunds, but was left aside by the many imperfections and that was soon forgotten. In 1760 Joseph Merlin devised metal wheel that was the precursor of the present. In London the marketed. Also in this year presented his invention in a fashion show, but as the parquet floor as the wheels crashed. After Merlin there were other people: Luis Van Lede wheels manufactured in 1790 "skid terre" which were a failure; Jean Garcin in 1813 patented the wheels of wood under the name "Gypsy"; Pettibled also highlighted in 1819, Tyre in 1823 and Kubler in 1834, although all three failed.

In 1867 the invention of Garcin of wooden wheels was picked up by some Englishmen that the industrial perfected. James Leonard Plinton the patented in New York, but the coupling with a wad of rubber on the front that allowed halt when ibas backward and forward to boot. In 1867 opened the first center in paris skating for the aristocracy. From that time began to have many clues, wood (being the most resistant wooden wheels), across Europe.

Edward Crawford introduced the sport in Europe in the early twentieth century with an adaptation of ice hockey to the wooden floors Europeans. It was very popular in England and in 1905 founded the Amateur Hockey Association, which originated the national association of hockey in 1913. The hockey began to spread through the rest of Europe, especially Switzerland and France, but not until 1924 was organized internationally. Fred Renkewitz created the International Roller Skating Federation (FIRS) in Montreux (Switzerland), meeting representatives Switzerland, France, Germany and Britain. Years later entered Belgium, Italy, Portugal and Spain in 1946, but was practised in Barcelona since 1915, and since 1928 also had its Catalonia regional federation. The first European Cup for clubs was played in 1926, and in 1936 started the World Cup. Before World War II, England was the best country, but from 1947 began to win Portugal, Spain and Italy in international competitions. In South America, Argentina was the better team.

The roller hockey is played on a track terrazzo mainly, but also may be or cement floor, surrounded by a fence to avoid leaving the ball. Each team consists of five players, who move on wheeled skates and can not intervene in the game when not in possession of the stick. All incorporate a series of protections in their clothing. The game is divided into two parts, 25 minutes each -20 teams in international competitions with a break-intermediate 5 minutes. This pattern emerged in Britain during the s. XIX.

In 1924 was first regulated in Switzerland and that same year formed the Federation of International Hockey skates.

Although no category Olympic exhibition sport was in the 1992 Barcelona Games. Spain and Portugal are the countries with more tradition in their practice.


Ever wonder who invented the first pair of skates? Where? When? How were the runners 100 years ago? How much resembled those that today you have you? So probably enjoy this page ...

The official credit for the invention of the first pair of skates, be attributed to Joseph Merlin, a luthier who was born in Huys, Belgium on September 17, 1735.

In May 1770, Merlin went to London as director of the Museum Cox in Spring Gardens, where he exhibited several of his musical instruments. Merlin also had examples of his work at his home in Oxford Street (emotionally called "the cave of Merlin"), where he also showed his unique invention: a pair of skates on wheels.

But his place in history as an inventor, also is accompanied by an amusing anecdote about the presentation of his invention in society: A letter from the period read: "... designed to rotate on small metal wheels. Provided a couple of these skates and a violin, he joined a dance dress held in Carlisle-House, Soho Square in the heart of London . An additional ways to reduce their speed or control their direction, was to give valued against a mirror located at the end of the ballroom. Not only resulted in breakage of the same and his violin but also was severely hurt. "

After this fiasco, not again oirse on skates until 1790, when a Parisian blacksmith invented a skid on wheels called "skate-a-terre." However, it took about 25 years to win recognition that this skid. In Berlin in 1818, skates on wheels were used for the first time in the premiere of the ballet "Der Maler oder die Wintervergnügungen" ( "The artist or winter Pleasures"). The ballet was created to skate on ice, but as it was not possible to produce ice on stage, were used wheeled skates.

The first patent of a skid on wheels was filed by M. Petitbled in France in 1819. These skates were wheeled metal, wood or ivory, mounted under a wooden base with straps to hold the foot. The runners were from a single size and as the wheels were fixed, it was impossible to move by a curved line.

In 1823, in London, Robert John Tyers patented model "Rolito". The British patent office, "Rolito" was described as a "device to be attached to the shoes, boots or other item that covers the foot in order to move out of necessity or pleasure." This model was done with 5 wheels fixed line and was an event that soon attracted public attention. It soon emerged patented many models, each a little more sophisticated than its previous model.

Some of the earliest models skate

So the runners began to spread but took a long time until it was a real success. In Germany was where it was really popular. In 1840, in a tavern near the city of Berlin, thirsty customers were served by girls on skates. This development attracted the attention of many, not to mention improving service.

In 1857 two tracks were open for skating in Convent Garden and Strand, two very important areas in central London.

But not until 1863, in the United States, James Leonard Plimpton thought of putting wheels under rubber suspensions and possible maneuver curves describing the skid. These skates were two pairs of parallel wheels back and forth as we know today and were by far much higher than all invented so far.

Shortly after that skates were popularized Plimpton, track skating became meeting places. In England, skating wheels furor was traditional in many places. But since many tracks were poorly maintained and regulated, the first wave of popularity did not last long.

Plimpton also founded the first association of wheels skid on U.S. society and organized the first international skating wheels. It also gave rise to the top of skill competencies (the Medal Plimpton) and developed a system of 'categories' skid.

Samuel Winslow, became involved with skating wheels when he was hired by James Leonard Plimpton to manufacture skates that he had invented. In the 1870s, Winslow began manufacturing its own models of skates and was sued for patent infringement by Plimpton. Both agreed to continue with the manufacture of skates. During the 1880s, over 1 million pairs of skates were in use in over 3000 U.S. tracks. On the photo at left is the model "A Vineyard" in line "Vineyard", produced during the years 1880-81 by the company of Samuel Winslow. His skates were the most popular at that time in the United States.

Improvements mechanical skates helped the renaissance of skating. The skates were added rulemanes needle (very thin rollers instead of bolillas as we know now) which allowed better than earlier models rolling. So, fashion won new followers who no longer had to make so much effort to skate.

Runs new and larger were opened in big cities. In Chicago, for example, a track under the name Casino Rink was opened in 1884 and was the scene for polo matches (on rollerblades), racing and dancing on skates. However, with the invensión of cycling in 1890, his popularity into oblivion to put skates on wheels during the next decade.

In 1902, the coliseum in Chicago (United States), was opened to the public a new skating rink. At the opening night there were 7000 people. Now, with his skates and had rulemanes of bolilla. In 1908, Madison Square Garden was converted into ice rink and for the next 2 years, hundreds of tracks were opened in the United States and England. The skating remained popular until the First World War, after which, cinema, dance and the car caught the attraction of the public and again, the skid on wheels declined in response, but never completely went into oblivion.

Thus, skates on wheels went through ups and downs throughout their history, from the efforts of Joseph Merlin until the use of rulemanes of bolillas during the early years of 1900. In the 60's, technology (with the advent of plastics) helped to grow this activity reaching the age of majority.

Perhaps in the future, skates on wheels come to resemble something one of the projects that the first inventors had imagined.
