Rules and Briefings
Shootouts to make FIH debut
One of the biggest changes to FIH Tournament Regulations is about to be put to the test with the Penalty Shoot-out Competition replacing the Penalty Stroke Competition to determine the result of tied classification matches. Further, the two-minute suspension for a green card has been made permanent and the experimental rule about a defender breaking the line or an attacker entering the circle too early at a penalty corner and having to go to the half-way line, has been made permanent.

Rules and Briefings
NFHS Rules More Aligned than ever with Rules of Hockey
With the adoption of the requirement that the ball must leave the circle on a penalty circle before a goal can be scored AND umpires are now able to penalize misconduct with an extended yellow card the NFHS rules are more aligned than ever with Rules of Hockey. Some important differences still remain.

Iím At The College BUT Whereís The Field?
Itís your first appointment to officiate at the University of XYZ. You go to the university website, put the address into Google maps, calculate drive time, printout the directions and head off with time to spare. The problem is, when you get to the campus you learn you're not even close to where field hockey competitions are played. Good news, now thereís an app with the answer to, "Where's the field?"

Stories from the Field
Survey Results To Thought Provoking Video (and new survey)
At the end of the traditional fall field hockey season in the USA, a video was posted by a field hockey fan on YouTube showing that play was restarted following a goal while the team that scored the goal was in an NFL-like huddle and not ready to defend. UmpireHockey.com decided to link to the video and allow readers to comment on the event. The decision to ask whether the umpire made the right or wrong decision to blow his/her whistle was subsequently applauded and criticized by members of the field hockey community. Share your opinion on that and whether time should be stopped after goals in field hockey.
