Competitive team, field hockey, a girls only sport, is often described as "soccer with sticks". The big difference being that the ball must be hit within the striking circle to count as a goal. The sticks are wooden or composite with a small round hook; one side of which is flat. Players may only strike the ball on the flat side of the stick. Like soccer, field hockey is a fairly easy sport to play on its most basic level but takes a lot of practice to be really good. Because of this it has always attracted a wide range of athletes at Edlin.
