A penalty stroke is a penalty awarded for a range of offences:
It involves a single shot (the stroke) by an attacker from a spot around six and a half metres from the centre of the goal, with only one defender to try and stop the shot. Because of the distance involved, it is intended that a stroke should be converted almost every time; however, because of the stress associated with one and the skill of some keepers, they are actually stopped or missed fairly often - some leagues have conversion rates of only 50%, with many others not a lot higher. As such, a keeper who can stop one is often a morale booster for the team, and a player who scores is typically a cause for celebration.
A series of five penalty strokes is also used to determine a winner in the case of some ties/draws.
The most scary thing you will ever do in Field Hockey. Defiantly if your the goalie.
To get a stroke, the goalie has to make the ball unplayable (example: the goalie sits on the ball) or if a player otherthan the goalie blocks the ball from a goal with any body part (example: hands or feet).
This penalty is just between one player and the goalie. The goalie stands on the goal line and the player places the ball on the stroke line (the foot long line, about 5 steps in front of the goal line).
The ref will say "goalie ready" and then "stroker ready". When both say yes, they will blow their whistle The stroker will then attempt to hit the ball into the goal and the goalie block it.
About 80% of the time, the ball will make it into the goal. Lol, not the best thing to hear if your a goalie (like me). But don't worry, strokes are VERY rare.
forehand and backhand are the main strokes there are also substrokes called slice cut lob smash.

Golf:a penalty stroke is a stroke added to a golfer's score for some infraction, for example, out of bounds or into a water obstacle.Field Hockey:a penalty stroke is awarded for serious or deliberate infractions within the shooting circle, or where the infraction prevented the probable scoring of a goal. A Penalty Stroke in field hockey is much like a Penalty in Football (Soccer).
Both of the goalkeeper's feet must be on the goalline (the section of the backline between the goalposts). Ideally, they would be as far forward as possible - only the slightest part of the heel needs to be touching the line and this puts you as close to the ball as you can get.

The only restriction on player movement is that goalkeepers cannot leave the 23 metres area (except when taking a penaty stroke). Every other player can go everywhere.
