FACILITIES AND EQUIPMENT IN HOCKEY
Your hockey stick is like your weapon on the battlefield.
The type of shoes you should be wearing depends on the type of surface
you are going to play on.
Even though field hockey is considered a non-contact sport, a mouth guard
is compulsory to be worn during all matches. The main function of the
mouthguard is to protect against concussion when coming into collision
with another player or the ball.
Shin Guards in field hockey must cover the athlete's entire ankle all the
way up to the bottom of their knee caps. When you play field hockey, your
shins take the most beating from balls and sticks. Hence, you may consider
investing in a quality pair of Shin Guards.
A stick bag is optional too but they’re definitely going to be convenient if
you’re going to be carrying multiple sticks at one go.
Electrical tape is really useful and if you tape them to the bottom of your
Extra equipment for the goalie:
The helmet protects your head and face from injury. When buying a helmet,
apart from how the helmet should fit your head comfortably, the visibility
when putting on the helmet is crucial as a goalie because you need to see
the ball easily on the field at all times. You will also want to ensure that the
cage on the helmet is fully protective.
According to the International Hockey Federation (FIH), the throat protector
is compulsory for goalies of all ages, from junior to advance players. The
throat protector or neck guard wraps around your neck and is designed to
protect the throat and neck from any high shots.
The chest pad protects the goalie’s torso and is padded in front. Full body
chest pads usually come with elbow guards.
Your body armor wouldn’t be complete without your arm and elbow
protector. They keep your arms and elbows safely padded just in case the
ball decides to hit you there. Though you don’t often get hit in those areas,
it’s always better to be safe than sorry!
The right-hand protector is hard and rounded, designed to fit around the
stick. On the other hand, the left-hand protector is flat and stiff to enable the
goalie to stop lifted shots. This is vice-versa depending if you’re right or left
Protecting your lower body is also important for a goalie. The goalie girdles
provide extra protection to the upper legs, hips and groin from shots.
If you’re a goalie, you’re going to appreciate the groin protector.
Although the goalie pants protect your upper legs, it doesn’t do much for
your lower legs. This is where the leg guards come in handy. They cover all
the way from the top of your feet to the top of your knee.
Kickers also protect your legs and shin. They usually come with the leg guards as a set.
