  1. Hockey Stick

Your hockey stick is like your weapon on the battlefield.

  1. Shoes

The type of shoes you should be wearing depends on the type of surface

you are going to play on.

  1. Mouth Guard

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.

  1. Shin Guards

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.

  1. Socks and Rash Guards
  2. Stick Bag

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.

  1. Electrical Tape

Electrical tape is really useful and if you tape them to the bottom of your


  1. Grip .
  2. Ball

Extra equipment for the goalie:

  1. Helmet

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.

  1. Throat Protector

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.

  1. Chest Pad

The chest pad protects the goalie’s torso and is padded in front. Full body

chest pads usually come with elbow guards.

  1. Arms and Elbow Protector

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!

  1. Right and Left Hand Protector

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


  1. Goalie Girdles

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.

  1. Groin/Pelvic Protector

If you’re a goalie, you’re going to appreciate the groin protector.

  1. Leg Guards

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.

  1. Kickers

Kickers also protect your legs and shin. They usually come with the leg guards as a set.



  1. Hockey players can only hit the ball with the flat side of their stick.
  2. Hockey players (other than the goalkeeper) are not allowed to use their feet, or any other parts of the body, to control the ball at any time.
  3. A goal can only be scored either from a field goal, a penalty corner, or from a penalty stroke. A field goal is a goal scored from open play, and can only be scored from inside the ‘striking circle’, in front of the opponent's goal. If the hockey ball is hit from outside the circle and goes into the goal, it does not count as a goal.
  4. Hockey players may not trip, push, charge, interfere with, or physically handle an opponent in any way. Hockey is a non-contact sport and all fouls result in a free hit or a ‘penalty corner’ for the non-offending team depending on where the infringement took place and the severity of the foul.
