The Game

Two teams. Sticks curved at the striking end. 11 players. A playing field. And one aim in mind – to score a goal by getting the ball past the goalkeeper.

Think hockey is just a game? Think again. It’s a fast-moving, highly skilled sport, and it takes fast moves, quick accurate passing, and hard hits to be a player.

Field Players
Besides the goalkeeper, these are the other 10 players who are designated to three specific categories – Attackers, Midfielders and Defenders.

Match Duration
A regulation hockey match lasts 70 minutes – which is broken into two halves of 35 minutes each, with a 5 – 10 minute break. The team with the most goals at the end of the 70 minutes is the winner, but it’s also possible for a match to end in a draw. In some matches – such as a championship game – where a winner must be announced, the match goes into extra time (where the first team to score wins), and if necessary, to a shootout.

Ruling
Each match is controlled by two umpires. Each umpire controls half of the pitch and works cooperatively in the middle section of the pitch.
