Tallahassee Indoor Sports grows local roller hockey scene – Tallahassee.com


Give it a few years and Tallahassee could be a hockey town. 

Not ice hockey – the city’s only ice skating rink is seasonal. With some help from local attorney Russ Buchanan, there’s a growing roller hockey scene. 

It’s a scene Buchanan, 34, is building from the ground up. Off 4 Points Way in Tallahassee, in a building you could miss if you didn’t know it was there, Buchannan and a group of friends launched Tallahassee Indoor Sports, a full-sized roller hockey rink for kids and adults. 

Buchanan bought the building last April and spent a year turning it into a competition-ready venue, including finding a rink in Savannah, which he disassembled and brought to Tallahassee. 

“We managed to value-engineer a lot of things, from the building to installing the rink and that sort of thing,” Buchanan said. “I think we’re in a position where we can grow at a pace that we want to grow at and not do things we don’t want to do. I think we’re in a good position in that way.”
