Hockey is a full contact sport played on an ice skating rink between two teams of 6 players each. You can score points by launching a puck in your opponent’s goal, and the team with the most goals wins at the end of 3 periods. If you want to play hockey, you will need rest in training and practicing skating quickly and efficiently. With a lot of practice and hard work, you will be able to try all positions in hockey.
Part 1 of 4:
Learn the basic rules
Wear helmet, pads, and hockey skates. Since hockey is a full contact sport, you will need to wear protective padding and helmets in order not to get injured if you fall onto the ice. Make sure you have pads and helmets that fit your body type and are securely secured. You will also need a good pair of hockey boards that provide ankle and mobility support.
Do not play ice hockey without any protective gear.
Do not use regular ice skates as they limit your movement and will not be as effective as skis designed for hockey.
Learn to plan a skating rink. The hockey circuit is divided into 3 sections, with blue stripes on ice. The central region with a thick red line is the neutral zone, and the target areas are the areas of the team in question. The thin red lines on both ends of the ring are the target lines in which the targets are located.
The half circle on each line represents the goal of the crease, or the area where the goalkeeper plays.
There are multiple circles on the skating rink that represent areas you may encounter. Confrontation circles are usually used after a penalty.
Start the game with a confrontation in the middle of the skating rink. The point in the middle of the skating rink is the starting position where you will have a confrontation at the beginning of the game. When the referee drops your pigeon, use your hockey stick to fight to control your pigeon. Once the Goblin has stopped, the game clock will start to appear.
You will also have confrontations at the start of each play period and after each point.
You may face encounters after some sanctions.
Score points by hitting the puck in the opponent’s goal. The main goal of the game is to get a puck in your opponent’s goal on their side of the ring. Use the stick to aim the puck at the goal to score one point for your team. If you are playing the goalkeeper, try to defend your goal from the scepter so the other team cannot score.
There are no limits to the number of points you can score during the game.
After each goal, a confrontation is in the midfield.
Avoid getting any penalties. Hockey has simple and major penalties that can lead you out of the game for two or 5 minutes. When the referee blows the whistle, the referee stops playing and watches the hand signals they give to determine what the punishment is and who is summoned. Common penalties include:
Dangerous use of the stick, including cutting or high stickiness
Obstruction penalties, including fixation or tripping.
Interfering or verifying a player does not control the scepter
Check back or by targeting the head
