Walking Hockey is a modified game of field hockey in which players walk instead of run.
Increasing in popularity throughout the world, Walking Hockey is perfect for players who are looking for a less physically demanding version of the game but still enjoy showing their skills and being involved in the team and social aspect. It’s also perfect for players brand new to the game who may be more comfortable in a less competitive format and those who prefer walking to running for whatever reason.
Walking Hockey is exactly as the name suggests - you play hockey while walking. It’s designed to help people keep an active lifestyle regardless of age, health and ability, as well as getting individuals back into the sport who had to stop due to injuries or other reasons. Most importantly, it’s fun.
In addition to the health benefits associated with most forms of physical activity; keeping fit, staying active, weight loss, etc., there are many other benefits of playing Walking Hockey. Socialize, meet new people, and enjoy playing field hockey!
