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 are left handed field hockey sticks against the rules?

Left-handed sticks are illegal because they create too much danger when combined with right-handed sticks. Since right-handed sticks are the dominant tradition, they are used instead of left-handed ones. A player with a left-hand stick tackling a player with a right-hand stick has a high chance of running into the player themselves, and vice versa; in the same situation, a player trying to tackle someone who has an opposite-handed stick is very likely to get hit by the followthrough swing if they decide to hit.

How do you hold a floorball stick?

You hold a floorball stick much like a hockey stick but insted of putting your together they are more apart (about 40cm).In floorball it's OK to play one-handed, so right-handed players should ideally use their right hand to hold the top of the stick for maximum control when they playone-handed. However if you play Field Hockey or if you are left-handed then it'sOK to keep your left hand at the top of the handle. Either way is legal.If the player holds the top of the stick in their right hand then a 'left' stick is required (because the players forehand shot will be on the left side of their feet) and vice verse. Sorry if this is confusing but it's which side is your forehand/blade is on which decides the type of stick.

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.
