Asian hockey players in action  Hockey
Hockey players use hooked sticks to control, dribble and push the ball

Hockey is played with 10 field players on each team. In the Asian Games, every team is made up of 16 players, 11 on the field and five in the interchange area.

Players use their hockey stick to control, pass, push and hit the ball. The object of the game is to get the ball into the opposing team's goal. The team that scores the most goals wins the match.

Players undertake different positions in hockey. There are attackers, midfielders, defenders and a goalkeeper who remains in his team's shooting circle, protecting the area.

Only the flat edge of the hockey stick must be used to hit the ball. Players are not allowed to use their feet or any other part of their body. Only the goalkeepers are allowed to use the stick, hands, feet, legs and body to stop the ball when defending their goals.
