Any and all positions commonly wear a protective glove, from attackers to defenders. That worn by a goalkeeper is not technically a glove, but is often referred to as such anyway.

Field hockey glove?

Gloves are a piece of equipment to use in hockey, provided they are suitable for the purpose. The two main glove types are either for protection or grip. Gloves worn for grip often cover the whole of the palm and fingers on both hands in order to give the best hold on a stick in wet conditions. A protective glove is usually worn only on the left hand and helps stop a turf from grazing the hand during a sweep or trap, or from being seriously injured (I have seen a man's finger almost severed by a hockey stick, so they are worth considering).

What hand should you wear a field hockey glove on?

It depends on what kind of glove and why you wear it. If it is a protective glove, most people only wear one on the left hand. If it is a grip glove, you should wear the pair of them. Some like to add another protective glove to the right hand, some like to wear protection on the left and grip on the right and others just don't wear gloves at all. The same goes for goalkeepers, although you would be silly not to wear the 'gloves', as some people call the hand pads. You can also wear undergloves to help with gripping the stick and the pads; again, it is entirely the player's choice.

How do you break in a ice hockey goalie glove?

If you want the circumference of the glove to increase, you should stuff tennis balls into the netting and tape them there. Maybe leave it overnight.If you want your glove to close more easily, you can open up the back part of the glove and clamp it into the closed position with a large clamp. Before using the glove for a practice or game, you may want to wet the inside of your glove. Not damp, soaking wet. (Sorry if that sounds kinda gross). Another thing you could do is to simply open and close it repeatedly in free time.

If you are right handed which hand should you wear a field hockey glove on?

The hand you wear a glove on is not related to whether you are left or right-handed. If you are wearing the glove for protection, wear it on the left, as this is the hand more prone to injuries; this is why the majority are single and shaped for the left hand. Many people wear a glove on both hands, just to be safe. If they are for grip, you will likewise be best off with wearing them on both; this is why they are sold in pairs.
