Sports with shorts can kiss our kilts. Field Hockey is one of the most difficult sports to play; it’s a game of power, speed, stamina and skill. Field hockey was originally a man’s sport. It’s dated back in the 1800 when a bunch of man started playing with a stick and ball, but it has change a little since then.
. The Field hockey field is hundred ft by fifty ft. It’s divided by a center line and a twenty-five yard line in each half of the field. The goalies cage is the ends of the field. There are eleven different positions on the field. At the center line there are four people called the forwards they play offence, then behind at the twenty-five are the mids they play offence and defense, after them are three backs they play defense, then finally the goalie.
The rules to the game are somewhat complicated, but I’ll try to explain them the best I can. You cannot hack during a game, hacking is when you continuously hit the other players stick. Then there are block outs or obstruction those are when you get in front of the person when you have to ball. Also there are feet. You cannot touch the ball with your feet. There are also dangerous hits, when to ball is too high into the air. Then there are dangerous sick, when your stick is too high in the air. The moves you can do are the y-doge, "L", and the backwards "L". Those are pretty self explanatory.
During the Field hockey season I played has a center mid, my job is to get the ball for the backs up to the forwards to get a goal. This year our Field hockey team made it to playoffs, we were second in the lead. We had a twelve -three season. This year was great and I couldn't ask for a better team. I can't wait for our next season.
