Hockey: Sydney Crosby, Martain Brouder
Well, by field hockey I think you mean hockey games that are done on the ground like field hockey, street hockey,ect. It is called ice hockey. *Field hockey and ice hockey are completely different rulebases. As the first answer pretty much describes, it is simply called "field hockey on ice", like it is called "field hockey on grass", "on turf", "on concrete", etc.
ice hockey is a rink and field hockey is just a field
In an ice hockey rink.
Anyone can play field hockey. You can become a really good player if you try your hardest to learn the game of field hockey. There are 11 players on the field for one team. Most Middle Schools and High School have field hockey. It is s fast moving sport. If you have not played before you should. It is a really amazing sport! Try It Out!
The lengths of field hockey sticks vary. Most common is the 37 inch field hockey stick, which is good for anyone 5'2" and over. The lengths are: 32-38" for older players 24-30" for younger (junior) players. Hope this helps! :)
Hockey. That's 'field' hockey as opposed to 'ice hockey'
there are 11 for each team including a goalie
On the field (best kind), the ice, gym floor, or pavement.
No. Originally "field hockey" was not called that, as at the time of origin there was only one type of hockey with variations, played around the world. Outside of America and Canada field hockey is known by its original and formal name of hockey. It is only after the popular growth of ice hockey and roller hockey in North America that the word "field" was added to distinguish it.
Field hockey is played by males and females of all ages, so their education is as varied as that of any community.
The very best field hockey player is Tourn de Nooijer, the Dutch Captain.
22- 11 on each team. 10 field players and 1 goalie.
yes, hockey players do play with a hard ball. It is smooth depending on the brand e.g - kookaburra
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.
In field hockey, there are 11 players on each team. Usuallly that includes, 3 defenders, a sweeper, two wings, three midfielders, one centre forward and a goal keeper
An Olympic field hockey team has a roster of sixteen players.
Field hockey is a whole year sport in most countries; the offseason is usually the summer, when many players play the easier form of summer hockey (rule alterations include not being allowed to raise or hit the ball, playing on a halfsize field, less players, etc.).
In field hockey, there are eleven different positions numbering to 22 people on the field at once. In ice hockey, there are four (6 if you want to be specific) positions numbering to 12 people on the ice at once.
It depends on which variant, the rulebase used and how formal the game is, but at least 4 players are needed on each side to make it interesting; 6 is the normal minimum for an official match of both indoor and ice hockey, and some forms of field hockey; 7 or 8 is a standard minimum for most field hockey grades; 11 is the usual for field hockey; teams can have up to 16 for field hockey and 20 for ice hockey.Normally, a maximum of 16 players are allowed for each team, with 11 on the pitch for each side at one time (11 a side). Most leagues require at least 7 or 8 players for a team to avoid requirement of forfeiting.
Field Hockey Field are flat to ensure that the ball can not roll in any direction unless it is moved by the players and to make it safe for players. if the ground was uneven it would be dangerous for the players to hit the ball incase the ball hit a bump in the grass or astroturf and was lifted into the air and hit a player.
Not all field hockey players wear skirts, to begin with. Very few female players wear bodysuits either. There are plenty of better solutions than a one-piece item which does not do everything it is needed for.
