"great activity for groups and parties"

"you don't have to be a pro athlete to play it"
A trial scrimmage
was played on February 20, 2005 at Colgate University an upstate New York (Division 1) liberal arts school. Play was between two intramural soccer teams. In a
post-game written questionnaire, players were asked to rate the "Fun Factor" of ICE SOCCER on a 10-point-high scale. The lowest score (by only one player) was an 8.5; the next lowest (again, by only one player) was 9.5 — all others were 10.0
Another trial game was held on October 3, 2005 at the Compuware Ice Arena in Plymouth, Michigan. The varsity ice hockey team from the University of Detroit Jesuit High School split into two ICE SOCCER teams for this play. Again post-game written evaluations were overwhelmingly positive. Ten of the 17 players who
rated the"Fun Factor" of the game rated it a score of 9 or higher(10 point high scale); five others rated it 8 or 8.5. The players' written comments (and the two lower ratings of 6 and 7) suggested that more speed (even though ICE SOCCER is plenty fast, but granted, not as fast as hockey) and more physical contact (expected from devoted,
hard-hitting hockey players) would have resulted in even higher ratings.
February 7, 2012 — The new sport of ICE SOCCER begins at the Farmington Hills Ice Arena. This promotional video was developed to attract kids to the after–school kids program.
