Best Answer

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.
