Need some hockey advice.

So summer's around the corner and I've started playing rollerhockey again.
I only started playing last summer, so I'm still pretty new at hockey.

I noticed I'm always becoming a victim of getting my stick lifted all the time.

I've read to always keep my stick down on the ground but people keep lifting
my stick when I'm about to get the loose ball or receiving a pass.

Is there any technique or tip someone can offer on how to prevent getting
stick lifted so easily?

Use your body to protect the ball/puck. Put yourself between the ball/puck and the player trying to check you.

You could also start doing strength training to help you be stronger on the ball/puck when you are getting checked.

Besides using your arms/body to protect the ball/puck, the best thing you can do is know where the opposing players are and not allow them to get into a position to lift your stick.

The other thing is, it is good to keep the stick on the ground, but moving it around will help you keep them from lifting the stick. They have to guess where your stick is going to be to lift it.

+1 to all of this.


Offensive/defensive awareness is a must. Know where the players are. Anticipation is key in hockey.

use your shoulder to give a nice shove to the other player. it'll give them the sign to back off.

put your body between the other player and the ball.

Thanks

All good advice but from wat im seeing, ur either not moving or moving very slowly when u meet the ball/puck. The guy checking you is moving at full speed so he can easily check your stick. In theory if your ahead of your checker and both players are moving at the same speed, theres no way he should be able to lift ur stick.

Most of the time it happens is when I'm trying to pick up a loose ball on the
side of the boards. I do slow down a bit to make sure I take the ball with me,
but right before my stick makes contact with the ball, it gets lifted so I end
up overskating the ball.

To echo what everyone is saying, make sure you have body position in front of the puck.

If you feel you're having to slow down, then make sure you use your body to block the guy off. If not, I usually hack the D's stick before I touch the puck, preempting his stick lift.

In the end, you just need to keep playing and put in your hours. Might I suggest you try ice? It's far more superior. I spent, nay, I wasted 2 years playing roller hockey. Switch to ice and you'll never look back.

I've tried ice. The cost of ice time is raping me.
And the opportunity to practice (which requires paying to be on ice) adds up too much,
cause I'm a student right now. (Sometimes I wished we just had frozen lakes here)

No doubt ice is awesome, but just that roller is something I can practice just by going to a local outdoor rink.

$6 for Stick & Puck from 9am-3pm Weekdays at RIC. They have free early morning hockey on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays as well. Ice players who play roller are much better than roller players who play ice.
