Indoor hockey is a smaller version of the outside hockey game. There are 5 field players and 1 goalie on the court at one time. The games are usually 20-25 minutes long. Games are played on a court-like surface (44m x 22m). Indoor hockey allows the athlete to improve their footwork and stick skills. The small surface space requires quick ball handling and footwork, which can is turn beneficial in one’s outdoor hockey game. Indoor requires the athlete to have good field awareness, vision, and ability to control the game.
