Lawn hockey is a team sport in the hockey family. Games can be played on a natural turf field or an indoor artificial turf field. Each team plays with eleven people, including the goalkeeper.
Players wear a standard set consisting of a jersey, shorts or skirt, shoes, and shins and mouth guards for safety. Each player carries a hockey stick made of wood, carbon fiber, fiberglass, or a combination of carbon fiber and fiberglass in varying amounts. The stick has two sides; one round and one flat. Only the flat face of the club is allowed to advance the ball.
During the game, the goalkeeper is the only person allowed to touch the ball with any part of his body. Goalkeepers often have different club designs; They also cannot play the ball with the round side of their club. The team that scores the most goals wins or loses the match.
Let the little ones play with hockey sticks on the green grass, adding color to the grass hockey players’ shirts with the brightest colors. Field Hockey coloring sheets will help children access this exciting sport.
