The basic field hockey rules
Hockey players can only hit the ball with the flat side of their stick. Hockey players (other than the goalkeeper) are not allowed to use their feet, or any other parts of the body, to control the ball at any time.
Put a puck in a sport sock and then pull it over the blade and then tape it to the lower shaft. Have the player participate in a few drills or games with the Sock Puck on. Because of the Sock Puck's weight the player will keep his stick on the ice.

But exactly how fast do hockey players skate? Throughout a hockey game, a player will typically skate at speeds in the range of 10-25 miles per hour (16-40 km/h). The fastest skaters in hockey are able to harness the power in their lower body to reach top speeds of up to 28 mph (45 km/h).
The Quick Hands drill is the foundation for all your stickhandling skills. Focus on soft, quick touches, rolling the wrists and little to no arm movement. The keys to this skill are to roll the wrist and cup the puck on both the forehand and backhand side.
Players are not allowed to kick the puck into the net or purposely direct it in with any part of their body. During regulation time, each team uses five skaters—three forwards and two defencemen—plus a goaltender. National Hockey League games are contested over three 20-minute periods.
Kicking in hockey is a penalty that is committed when one player uses their skate to kick or attempt to kick an opponent. No player, including the goalkeeper, is permitted to use their skate to kick an opponent at any time or at any position on the ice.
What is hockey lingo?
Apple: an assist. Barnburner: a high-scoring game. Bender: a player whose ankles bend while they're skating. Bottle rocket: when a goal breaks the goalie's water bottle that sits on top of the net. Biscuit: the puck.
The idea here is simple: when playing hockey you never know when the puck might come your way, so you should be ready for it at all times. Keeping your stick on the ice means you can shoot at a moments notice, important when you're on the receiving end of a lucky bounce or a great pass.
According to the Urban Dictionary, the phrase "Keep your stick on the ice" has two meanings: "First, be ready for anything. Hockey is fast and the difference in a one-goal game could be the result of your stick placement (applies to everyone, goalies included). "Second, chill out; keep it simple.
It is only an offence if the ball hits the foot or body of a player and that player: moved intentionally into the path of the ball, or made no effort to avoid being hit, or was positioned with the clear intention to stop the ball with the foot or body, or gains benefit.
Players can advance the puck with the feet but cannot kick it into the goal with the feet to score. If a team kicks the puck into the goal, they lose possession of it.
Foot hockey (also known as Hocker) is a sport related to hockey in which the only equipment is a ball, most commonly a tennis ball, that is kicked about the playing surface by the players in an attempt to score a goal on the opposing goaltender.
Penalty corner in hockey
The most common cause for a penalty corner is the ball touching a player's feet in the circle. If an offence takes place outside the striking circle but within the 23m area, the umpire can still award a penalty corner should the offence be severe.
