Field Hockey, which is similar to Ice Hockey, is a team sport where individuals attempt to score on the opposing teams goal. A form of field hockey was first played in ancient Greece, yet there is debate over whether it was a team or individual sport. Today, teams in Field Hockey are comprised of ten players and a goalie, and players use wooden or carbon fibre sticks in order to hit a ball into the opposing teams goal. The field which field hockey is played on is the same size as an average soccer field.
