Nassau-Suffolk Deck Hockey
Nassau-Suffolk Dekhockey trades in skates for shoes, pucks for balls, and cross checks for high-fives. The organization has hosted friendly street-hockey matches, leagues and clinics since 1979. Players sign up with teams of 11–20 players or place their names on a free-agent list to be placed on a team or picked up by the NHL. The league is divided into young kids, older kids, teens, and adults, each of whose seasons last 10 games before the playoffs. Nassau-Suffolk Dekhockey's onsite equipment shop helps players keep elbows, knees, and faces protected.
