Hockey is a sport that necessitates a great deal of preparation and commitment. Hockey is an outdoor sport that is commonly played on a rectangular track. The goalkeeper stands in front of the goal post with a curved hockey stick, wearing a heavily padded jersey and helmet. A hockey stick resembles the letter “J” in appearance. The goalkeeper must wear protective suits because the puck, when hit with the hockey stick, travels at a high speed towards the goal post, and a lack of padding could result in serious injuries.
In our nation, field hockey is a common team sport. On grass, artificial or watered turf, or synthetic fields, it is played. Each team consists of ten players, including a goalkeeper. A curved stick is used to play hockey. The target is to drive the ball forward and score a goal with the curve end of the stick. The strikers are extremely skilled at reaching the mark and ensuring that their shots reach the goal post. The goalkeeper is responsible for preventing the opposing team from scoring goals.
The game often begins with a coin flip between the two captains. The toss winner has the option of choosing his side of the field or passing it first. In each session, the game is played for 75 minutes. There are two rounds of thirty-five minutes each, with a one-minute break in between. Medication, strategic planning, and recovery are all done during this period.
On their respective fields, the teams take their places, and one side allows a center move.
The game continues as the crews move the ball to one another, attempt to hold their rivals off the ball, and score goals. At the end of the game, the team with the most goals wins. In the event of a tie between the teams, one minute of extra time is given at first. If the teams are both unable to score and the tie remains unresolved, a shootout will be held. Three players on each team get a penalty shot in a shootout. The match is declared won by the team that scores the most points.
