Indoor Hockey FAQs

So what is indoor hockey, anyway?

Indoor hockey is played in a gymnasium on an area slightly larger than a basketball court.  There are five players per team (one goalie and 4 field players) and boards along the sideline to allow for continuous play.

Why play indoor hockey?

The quick indoor surface really allows players to focus on perfecting their ball-handling skills, and the small playing area helps players to become more proficient in their short passing skills.  But not only is indoor a great time to improve your stick skills, but indoor is a lot of fun and is a great way to meet new people and stay in shape!

Who should play?

Any youth player (in grades 8, 9, 10 or 11), beginner to advanced, who would like to improve their stick skills is encouraged to play indoor.   Any player who is contemplating playing in college should definitely play indoor hockey, as most collegiate programs include indoor hockey as part of their off-season play.  In addition, many collegiate programs play on turf, so getting experience on the fast indoor surface is a great way to prepare for college!

What are the rules for indoor hockey?
