Indoor Hockey

Cambridge City aims to offer indoor opportunities for all our age groups from U10 to U18. More information about training and competition dates will be available closer to the start of the season. To make it fair, partcipation in indoor hockey does carry an extra cost, as not every player in each age is able to partcipate.

What is Indoor Hockey

Indoor hockey is a fast, skilful and action-packed version of the outdoor game. Played on a hard, smooth, and flat surface, the aim is still to score more than your opponents. However, a few changes make the sport more suitable for playing indoors:

  • The playing pitch is smaller than the outdoor pitch.
  • Side-boards mark the sidelines helping to keep the ball in play.
  • The goals are smaller than in outdoor field hockey.
  • A team consists of 5 field players and 1 goalkeeper on the pitch, with a maximum of 10-12 players on a team.
  • The players may not hit the ball, but only push it or deflect it, and may not raise the ball except in the shooting circle, with the purpose of scoring a goal.
  • Players typically play with a lighter, quicker stick specially made for indoor use.
