What is Field Hockey?

What is it?
Field hockey is a game can be played on grass, artificial turf or a synthetic field. Depending the on the age group, each team plays with up to ten field players and a goalkeeper. Players utilize sticks made out of wood, carbon fiber or fiber glass to hit a round, hard, plastic ball. The sticks have a round side and a flat side and only the flat face of the stick is allowed to be used; if the other side is used, it results in a foul.

Players compete for two halves (30 minutes each). Whoever scores the most goals by the end of the match wins. If the score is tied at the end of the game, either a draw is declared or the game goes into extra time or a penalty shootout, depending on the competition's format. 

The uniform consists of shin guards, shoes, shorts, a mouth guard and a jersey. The league will provide a jersey, but the player is expected to arrive to practice/games with the remaining required uniform elements.

Field Hockey Stick Information
The length of the stick is based on the player's individual height: the top of the stick usually comes to the players hip, and taller players typically have taller sticks. Goalies often have a different kind of stick; however, they can also use an ordinary field hockey stick. The specific goal-keeping sticks have another curve at the end of the stick, this is to give them more surface area to save the ball.
