A non profit roller hockey league is celebrating nearly 50 years in Queens.
The College Point Roller Hockey league started in 1967 with the support of the Rangers and has been providing kids a chance to play in a state of the art NHL-sized rink in College Point.
Organizers say the league is a community affair with coaches who played in the league themselves now volunteering to keep it running.
“I’ve been doing this since I’m their age myself; I’ve been playing for 40 years. It’s really nice to share it with my kids. Most of these other coaches here, Danny is one of them, used to be my teammate when we played together. And now we’re all here coaching our own kids. So it’s really nice we get to share this with each other," said Nick Antolos, a coach with the league.
The league is open to girls and boys between the ages of 5 to 17.
