Best Answer

Before a hockey match a coin is tossed to see who gets the push back.

Whichever team captain wins picks either the the direction in which to score, or whether or not to have first push back.

The person who plays the centre-forward position takes the push back from the centre of the half-way line on the pitch. when the whistle is blown for the match to start, the centre-forward passes the ball back to a member of their team- that's how play begins.

A push back is taken after every goal.

How does a game of field hockey start off play?

Taken from the centre of the pitch, it's called "push-back", although the ball may go forwards or backwards from the centre line. The player taking the push back may pass to a team-mate (or an opponent if s/he really wants), or "pass" it to himself. All opposition players must be 5 metres away at push back.
