Ring hockey is a team game which is suitable for a large recreational room, sports hall or corridor. The aim of the game is to shoot the ring into the opponent’s goal. You will need 2 teams with max 6 players in each team, a ring (small rubber ring which can be slipped along the floor easily) sticks (upturned sweeping brushes) and 2 goals. You will also need slippery floor surface (sports hall, corridor).
Rules: The ring can only be moved along with the stick. It is a little bit like hockey (the stick can be pushed into the centre of the ring). The ring can be stopped with the foot but must be immediately re-released. Important: Watch out that no players swing the stick so hard that they could injure other players!
I have introduced a rule: The player with the ring is the victim! That means he can be pushed or hindered…etc. This rule means that there are less egoistical players who simply run from the back to the front and wait for the passes. (Obviously no tackles are allowed which may cause serious injuries! Small bumps are OK; this is part of the learning process. If you don’t have a ring: A dishcloth or shoe can also be used.
the team with the most goals wins
