Best Answer

Field Hockey teams usually consist of 10 or 11 people. The various positions are: Goal Keeper, Defenders, Centre midfield, Midfield, Wingers and Striker. Formations are similar to most sports, and as such can vary widely depending on where team players are placed, but usually, you will have 1 Goal keeper, 3 Defenders, 2 Centre Midfield, 2 Midfield, 2 Wingers, and a striker, including substitutes if available.

Is field hockey a hard sport to play?

Person 1 Field hockey is just as hard as any sport, it all depends on the amount of dedication you put into it. Person 2 I've played some field hockey and a lot of ice hockey, and I found field hockey much harder. For one thing, it is unfair to those of us who are left shots. Because of the types of sticks in field hockey, we all had to shoot right. Also, a ball on grass is much harder to handle than a puck on ice. I didn't enjoy playing field hockey at all.
