What are the rules of hockey?
The object of hockey is to hit a ball with a stick into the opposition's goal. The team with the most goals at the end of the game is the winner. Each team is made up of 11 players. The ball must be passed or dribbled using the stick and no other body part is allowed to intentionally come in contact with the ball (unless you are a keeper making a save!)
The most common fouls that lead to free hits are:
- Obstructing an opponent from playing the ball
- Interfering with the stick or body when tackling
- Kicking the ball
- Playing the ball dangerously
