Yes and no. Firstly, there are many ways you can get hurt in Field Hockey. These can range from regular penalties or fights that break out. Penalties like high-sticking and elbowing can cause many cuts and bruises, which to most seems like an injury. Also, fights can break out. Most deaths from ex-NHL players come from head injuries and when a fight breaks out most likely, the opponent will aim for the head. You can also get hurt if body checking or physical contact is allowed. You could get hit on the head which should always be protected.

(Remember to wear all equipment and hopefully, you can keep yourself injury free!)

A dangerous hit in field hockey is if you hit the ball in the air while a person is in the way of it or has to take evasive action to avoid it. If no one is in the way, it is perfectly fine but you can raise it into the "D".

The ball is considered dangerous when it is raised above the knee and causes "legitimate evasive action", or is raised towards an opponent within 5 metres.

What is a free hit in hockey?

Every sport uses penalties to promote fair play and minimize unfair advantages. When it comes to free hits in field hockey, the umpires use their discretion and interpretation to determine the penalty. Typically, an umpire awards a free hit when a foul like an obstruction occurs outside the striking zone. The umpire may give a free hit to either the offense or defense depending on who creates the foul. More serious penalties like dangerous play or raising field hockey sticks outside the goal require a stricter penalty.
