The playing field for field hockey is 91,4 m × 55 m. The two halves of the pitch are each divided by a quarter line 22.9 m from the goal line. 6.40 m from the centre of the goal is the 7-metre point for penalty kicks. Outside of the regular point game, small field hockey (half a field) is also played. Today, the game is played predominantly on artificial turf, in former times on natural grass and hard pitches.

Goal of the game

The goal is to shoot the plastic ball (approx. 7.5 cm diameter, previously made of leather or pressed cork) into the goal, whereby the ball is only played with the flat side of the bat and the goal shot is only allowed in the shooting circle. The ball must have been touched within the shooting circle by a player of the attacking team before crossing the goal line.

Equipment

In hockey, protective equipment is mandatory to prevent injuries. The field player’s equipment is different from that of the goalkeeper. The field player wears a club jersey, trousers/skirt, shin pads, socks and a tooth guard. The goalkeeper wears a helmet, upper body protection under the jersey, padded trousers, plastic splints on the legs and kickers as shoes. In the hall, more and more wooden clubs are used again, while the plastic clubs have established themselves in the field.

Basics

A field hockey team consists of a goalkeeper and 10 field players (on the small field 6 field players and a goalkeeper (in hall 5 field players plus goalkeeper). Up to five substitutes are allowed, who may change at any time (interchanging). It is allowed to change as often as you want. Only between the imposition and completion of a penalty corner may there be no change. Exception in case of injury or suspension of the TW.

In contrast to other ball sports, hockey is basically a disembodied game, i.e. the opponent may not be pushed away or actively blocked. The ball may only be played with the bat. The hand on the racket may touch the ball but may not play actively. Only the goalkeeper may play with his whole body, foot and hand – but only in his own shooting circle. He may not play the ball in such a way that it becomes dangerous for another player. A ball is considered dangerous if it moves upwards from knee height near a player. It is allowed to play the ball while lying in the field, but not in the hall.

Field hockey games last two times 35 minutes in the adult area and two times 30 minutes in the indoor area; in the youth area the game is played for a shorter time depending on the age group.

In contrast to indoor hockey, the ball may be hit or played high in field hockey as long as nobody is endangered. In the hall, flicking is only allowed as a goal shot. In field hockey, flicking is also used on the field to overcome greater distances and opponents. High balls in the shooting circle are allowed if they are goal shots. A goal counts if the shot was taken within the circle and even if a shot from outside the circle is still touched by an attacker in the circle. In the case of a penalty corner, the hit ball may rise higher than the goal board during its flight phase, but must have lowered back to board height up to the goal line. Alensball may hit the goal at any height. If a goal is prevented by a rule violation (e.g. foot, stick foul etc.), there is a 7M.

In the case of intentional rule violations in the shooting circle, the decision must be made on the basis of seven metres. In the case of intentional rule violations outside the shooting circle in one’s own quarter, the decision is to be made on the penalty corner. In the case of rule violations such as unintentional play with the foot or hitting a stick, the decision is made on free stroke for the disadvantaged team. If the ball crosses the side line, the opponent receives an impact from the point where the line was crossed. For free shots, a minimum distance of 5 metres must be maintained in the hall 3 metres (in this case also for other players).

The referees can show the players green cards (warning), yellow cards* and red cards. If a player breaks a rule a second time, which in the first case would have to be punished with the yellow card, he will be shown yellow-red and excluded from the game.

  • Hall: 2m for disembodied fouls and 5m for physical fouls
  • Field: 5m for disembodied and 10m for physical fouls

For the youth games, we are dependent on the fact that either older players than the parents who play or parents who travel with them lead the game, so that the coaches can take care of the teams. As a spectator or as a player, you perceive many situations differently from a referee. It is an important experience not only for adolescents to take on responsibility and then decide in fractions of a second and then carry this decision or even revise it.
