    Hockey

     

    Field hockey is a team sport of the hockey family. The earliest origins of the game date back to the Middle England, Scotland, France and the Netherlands.

    The game can be played on a astro truff or a turf field as well as an indoor board surface. Each team plays with eleven players, including the goalie.

    Players use sticks made out of wood, carbon fibre, fibre glass or a combination of carbon fibre and fibre glass in different quantities (with the higher carbon fibre stick being more expensive and less likely to break) to hit a round, hard, plastic ball. The length of the stick depends on the player's individual height. Only one end of the stick is allowed to be used. Goalies often have a different kind of stick, however they can also use an ordinary field hockey stick. The specific goal-keeping sticks have another curve at the end of the stick, this is to give them more surface area to save the ball.

    Wick's uniform consists of a shirt (White and green) a skort (Green), white socks, shin guards and astro boots.
