Hockey

Sport Overview

Hockey is played in teams of 11 players. Each player dribbles and passes the ball using a U-shaped stick, and the objective is to score points by hitting the ball into the opponent’s goal. Only successful shots made from within the shooting circle in front of the goal count. Therefore, getting the ball into the circle is key to scoring and winning.
