We wish everyone a very Happy and Healthy New Year!  I hope everyone is excited for the upcoming travel roller hockey season and of course for STATE WARS.  This is a special year for us as it is our 15th Anniversary!!!

Our goal each year is to field teams in each birth year and where possible to field ones for both upper and lower skill level divisions at the tournament.  We ask all of you to help promote THE best roller hockey event in the world! 


  • The tryout fee is still $65 for a 2 hour tryout & State Wars tryout jersey (risk free, players attending 2 hour tryout and not selected will receive full refund)
    • We ask everyone to register early as it is necessary for us to run an efficient tryout (booking rink time, releasing tryout schedule in advance, flying in staff, ordering tryout jerseys and more…thank you in advance!)

**State Wars is being held at the beautiful SportONE Parkview Icehouse in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  This will be our third time hosting the event in this terrific facility, that houses 3 NHL air conditioned rinks all under the same roof with a very nice sports bar restaurant that oversees all 3 rinks!  Fort Wayne is a great city and definitely a very affordable one for all of our families.**

***As State Wars continues to grow (346 teams in 2019!) we are reaching more and more teams from around the world.  We already have teams competing at State Wars from other countries such as : Canada, Colombia, Brazil, Korea, United Kingdom, France, Argentina and Sweden.  We are excited that we will have even more new countries competing in Fort Wayne this summer!***
