Rules of hockey for beginners and basic skills
As promised at training this week, I am posting two really useful videos about the rules of hockey and some really basic skills (grip, passing, moving with ball...).
There are always some slight changes to the rules every season so you can also check on England Hockey website.
It is always a good idea to look and listen to umpire when unsure. Umpires use different hand gestures for fouls, always indicate where the game should be restarted from and whose ball it is.

As always, don't hesitate to ask questions at training from more experienced players or your captain.
See you at training on 16th October, 7pm at Colfe's School.
