airskid hockey

small holes under playground send air for floating you and the puck
  [vote for,

Just like the toy game, but for real size hockey with real people.

To save energy, the players can carry an air supply on their back and use air skids, and the puck can hold a small supply of h2o2 in cells, releasing oxygen at a controlled speed.

Not this. https://zapata.com/...roducts/flyboardair
Only a thin sheet of air is needed to make you skid along. Perhaps using liquid nitrogen or liquid air [pashute, Jun 30 2019]

       How do you stop and turn? I thought air hockey is about deflection of strait line shots.   

       Ice hocky without turn control, just bouncing infintely around the field until players interesect with puck.

       um. that's the other half of the idea. hmm. maybe you have wheels on the side that make contact when you bend over, or more fun: wings.

       Without friction, voluntary, controlled movement will be impossible. Collisions and falls will be unavoidable. Players will inevitably be injured, perhaps seriously ...

       hmmm, tiny rear-ward facing pockets beneath the skid/skates would allow for turning and acceleration, and just tilting your feet would cause loss of pressure and create friction with the floor.
