Why are left handed field hockey sticks against the rules?

There are a lot of left-handed players in the world including internationals who play with regulation hockey sticks. With a little practice and getting used to the skills you will find that a lot of the skill involved in field hockey uses the left hand more than the right in hockey. For example, the Indian dribble uses the left hand to turn the sticks face from left to right when dribbling. When controling the ball you will find that much of the work is done by the left hand at the top of the stick, and the right hand is really just for support and stabilising the stick.

Why is it illegal to play with a left handed hockey stick?

In field hockey, the use of different-handed sticks creates a danger scenario where two players of opposing teams wil end up colliding when both go for the ball, because their bodies are on the same side. This is a major safety problem, and is dealt with by simply removing the possiblity of it ever occurring. In ice hockey, there is no such rule. Sticks are not particularly right- or left-handed, and players may use them on either side - some ambidextrous players might use it on both.

Why does field hockey cater only for right handed players?

Although the stick is designed for right-handed people, there are some skills which left-handers find easier. The game was originally played this way because more of the players were right-handed, and it has continued as such because having combination of left- and right-handed sticks is a serious safety issue; this (danger) is the first thing FIH tries to avoid, and so the rules require a stick made the right-handed way.

If your left hand is the lower hand on an ice hockey stick is the stick considered to be left or right handed?

Our plant produces about 30% left to 70% right for forward sticks. However, almost all goalies play left, no matter which-handed they are. Keep in mind that in forward positions right-handed people often play left, and vice versa, so the stick they use is not always an indication of which hand they write with. Only a very few goalies play right...probably fewer than 10% in professional hockey.
