There are a lot more than five rules in hockey, but the basic five would be: # Only use the left side (when the hook is facing away from your body) of the stick to play the ball. # Do not use your body to play the ball (unless you are a goalkeeper). # D not interfere with other players. # Do not raise the ball (except under permitted circumstances). # Listen to what the referee tells you.
