The best kind of stick to purchase in field hockey is a composite stick. You may also buy a wooden one, but the composite sticks are heavier, making the ball go further when you hit it. However, composite sticks are more expensive. How do you know which are composite an which are wood? - It will either say it on the stick, or you will be able to tell by the weight of the stick. Composite sticks are a lot heavier.
if you have a left stick your left hand goes low ( not to low ) on the stick and your right hand on the top of the hockey stick, for a right stick it's the opposite of holding a left stick, to tell if you are a lefty or a righty with a hockey stick try this both ways with a right and a left stick to see what is more comfortable for you.
Exactly when is hard to tell, but the first women's field hockey club was founded in 1887. The first women's field hockey national association was in Ireland in 1894.
I will tell you the ones i know of. Mini hockey is only played in a half of a hockey field, or even smaller, and there are 8 that play. Field hockey is played full field (the whole hockey field) and you have 11 players that play (including the goalkeeper). They are both similar in that they both play with hockey sticks and they are still a type of hockey. The same rules apply in both.
For Hockey sticks you need to measure from you chin when you are wearing skates and from your nose when not wearing them. That will tell you what size stick you will need. It should be in inches. Hope that helps.
Curve of the blade...curves forward away from the player...to determine if you are a lefty or righty - hand that's closest to the blade determines this...
keep his head up, keep your hands on your stick, keep the stick on the ice, don't rely on your stick for balance
It is called a penalty go to google and search hockey rules and it will tell you like tripping and all of the other penalties
Before I can answer this question, I must tell you that "harry" needs to be capitalized. Harry.
It is not against rules as long as you did not kick it in, so it probably doesn't matter.
The answer to this question is very difficult as it depends on what kind of stick you use... wooden, composite, full composite... First - do a visually check of the stick to see for any breaks or fractures usually that will give you an idea. Secondly - the best thing to do would be to listen out for the sound the stick makes when you hit the ball and if its not a solid sound and the stick vibrates a lot then it maybe broken. Thirdly - before you buy another stick show it to your coach or someone who is experienced and has many years of hockey behind them to see if they agree with your evaluation and in most cases these people will know if the stick is broken or not just by doing the first two points i made.
