Ice Hockey

Originally more popular in places such as Canada, parts of Europe and the United States of America, where the climate is cold enough to support seasonal playing of the game.

Ice Hockey is now a popular sport across the world, thanks to indoor ice rinks that allow it to be played despite the weather or the season.

It was officially recognised as a Winter Olympics sport in 1998.

The predominant difference between Women's Ice Hockey and Men's is that body blocking is not allowed.

This is due to the fact that many North American players have a size advantage over players from other countries, giving them an unfair advantage.

Women are also required to wear protective full face masks. In the United Kingdom, the Main Leagues are:

  • Premier League
  • Division One (North)
  • Division One (South)
  • U16 Northern Division
  • U16 Southern Division

Common Injuries

Ice Hockey can be a dangerous sport to play and comes with high risks, as, in Men's Ice Hockey at least, it is a full contact sport.

If you should get injured whilst playing, it can leave you on a plane home and out of action in recovery for months, with physiotherapy to complete following your hospital stay.

Injuries are common in the sport, with the added risk of contact with other players blades and sticks in addition to contact with the actual players. 80% of all Hockey injuries occur as a result of direct contact.

The head is the body part most commonly injured in the game, with lacerations to the head, scalp and face the most common. 50% of concussions are a result of checking from behind, leading many leagues to make this a gross misconduct penalty offence.

If a player is not knocked unconscious, concussions can often go unreported, making them all the more dangerous.
