Best Answer

Field Hockey sticks are much shorter than Ice Hockey sticks because a rolling ball on rough grass or turf is harder to control than a puck gliding over smooth ice, although longer than normal sticks can be made for taller players or those who wish for a special advantage in one area (dragflickers can make their shots faster because the ball spends more time on the stick, ergo more time being accelerated and so a faster overall speed).

If you see players bent over, then their posture is probably not correct and this can lead to gradual injuries. The knees and legs are what should be bending, not the back.

How does field hockey relate to hockey?

Hockey refers to a family of sports, all of which involve two teams playing each other, using sticks to propel a ball or puck into the opponent's goal. Field hockey is one of those sports, in which teams of 11 play on a turf with J shaped sticks, a small hard ball around 73mm (2.9in) in diameter. Outside North America, field hockey is shortened to "hockey", therefore blurring the distinction. Other hockey sports include ice hockey (referred to as "hockey" in North America) and roller hockey.
