What equipment do I need to play field hockey?
What type of shoes should I wear to play field hockey?
There is no need to invest in any special type of footwear in order to play field hockey, running shoes will work.
Outdoor Hockey: Some players will wear a "turf shoe" that is designed to be worn on field turf, however, a running shoe will work just fine.
Indoor Hockey: You will need a pair of clean 'indoor shoes', however, some players do prefer to wear a "court shoe" similar to what you would wear to play squash.
When does the field hockey season begin?
Outdoor Field Hockey: the outdoor season traditionally starts on the Tuesday immediately following the Victoria Day, however, this is dependant on City of Oshawa Facility Permit availability
Indoor Field Hockey: the indoor season typically starts on the Tuesday immediately following Thanksgiving (also dependant on permit and gym availability)
