Play Hockey
Hockey is a family of sports in which two teams play against each other.
1. Hockey
Hockey is a stick and ball game with origins dating back thousands of years. It is traditionally played on grass, but more often it is played on synthetic surfaces. Two teams compete using hooked sticks to hit, push, pass and dribble a small, hard ball with one aim in mind to score a goal by getting the ball past the goalkeeper.
2. Teams
There are 11 players on the pitch with up to five substitutes on the sideline. Players can substitute virtually at any time and any number of times.
3. Player positions
Every team has a goalkeeper although, rarely, a team will play only with field players to put more players into attack. The other 10 players are called field players, and are in three categories attackers, midfielders and defenders.
4. Stick handling
Hockey players must be able to control, pass, push, stop and hit the ball with a hockey stick. This is known as stick work, or stick handling. Keeping the ball under close control is called dribbling. The head of a hockey stick has a rounded side (the right side) and a flat side (the left side). It is only with the flat, lefthand side of the stick and the edges of that side which can be used to play the ball.
5. No feet
Field players are not allowed to use their feet (or any other parts of their bodies) to control the ball. Only the goalkeeper is allowed to use hands, feet, etc. to stop or propel the ball when defending in his or her own circle.
