Welcome to today’s class!!
We are thrilled to have you in our class!!
In today’s Physical Education Class class, we will be talking about Hockey Games
Because football and basketball are some of the popular sports games played in Nigeria and Africa as a whole, hockey games may sound very new. One of the interesting things about hockey games is that it is an outdoor game.
Hockey games is an outdoor game played between two teams of 11 players who use long curved sticks to hit a small ball and try to score goals.
Hockey is a term used to denote a family of various types of both summer and winter team sports which originated on either an outdoor field, sheet of ice, or dry floor such as in a gymnasium. While these sports vary in specific rules, numbers of players, apparel, and playing surface, they share broad characteristics of two opposing teams using a stick to propel a ball or disc into a goal.
Other games derived from hockey include the following:
- Air hockey is played indoors with a puck on an air-cushion table.
- Beach hockey, a variation of street hockey, is a common sight on Southern California beaches.
- Ball hockey is played in a gym using sticks and a ball, often a tennis ball with the felt removed.
- Box hockey is a schoolyard game played by two people. The object of the game is to move a hockey puck from the center of the box out through a hole placed at the end of the box (known as the goal). The players kneel facing one another on either side of the box, and each attempts to move the puck to the hole on their left.
- Broomball is played on an ice hockey rink, but with a ball instead of a puck and a “broom” (actually a stick with a small plastic implement on the end) in place of the ice hockey stick. Instead of skates, special shoes are used that have very soft rubbery soles to maximize grip while running around.
In summary, Hockey games are outdoor games played between two teams of 11 players who use long curved sticks to hit a small ball and try to score goals.
