The Game of Hockey

Ice Hockey

Ice hockey is a winter sport played on an ice surface, called a rink, which has the shape of a rectangle with curved corners. The object of the game is to score more goals than the opposing team. Goals are scored by shooting a rubber disc, called a puck, into the opposing team's net. Each team has 5 players and 1 goaltender on the ice. The goaltender's main purpose is to stop the puck from entering in the net while the main purpose of the players is to score goals. The 5 players are divided into two groups: forwards and defensemen. There are three forwards and two defensemen. The three forwards are usually called a line or trio while the defensemen are said to be a pair.

Am I too old to start playing hockey?

This is one of the questions I see quite often posted on ask yahoo. Am I too old to start playing hockey?

The answer is simple - absolutely not!

This is an interesting question and it does happen from time to time in hockey games, especially ones where there is alot of physical play.

This drill is good as a warm-up during a practise or to make the players use their different shots. It combines some skating with shooting.

This drill is intended to practise 2v2 situations for both offense and defense. It is also a good conditioning drill for defensemen.
