LAWN HOCKEY

Source: Outdoor Sports and Games
Category: ONE HUNDRED OUTDOOR GAMES





This game is played on a field a little smaller than a football field,
being 110 yards long and from 50 to 60 yards wide. The ball used is an
ordinary cricket ball. The goals are two upright posts 12 feet apart
and with a crossbar 7 feet from the ground. Eleven men on a side
constitute a full team, but the game may be played with a fewer
number. The positions are known as three forwards, five rushes, two
backs or guards, and the goal tender.

The object of the game is very simple, being to drive the ball between
your opponents' goals. The ordinary ice hockey stick will be
satisfactory to play with. The principal thing to remember in lawn
hockey is not to commit a "foul," the penalty for which is a "free
hit" at the ball by your opponents. It is a foul to raise the stick
above the shoulders in making a stroke, to kick the ball (except for
the goal tender), to play with the back of the stick, to hit the ball
other than from right to left, and any form of rough play such as
tripping, pushing, kicking, or striking.

Lawn hockey is an excellent game and is really the old game of
"shinney" or "shinty" played scientifically and with definite rules.
