Rules of Quicksticks

The rules of Quicksticks have been written specifically to make the introduction to hockey easy for both the player and deliverer. 

The key headings below offer a quick summary:

No Goalkeepers

Quicksticks does not include goalkeepers making it safe, accessible, cost and time effective.

Fewer Players

Quicksticks is played 4-a-side offering all players full involvement and increased playing time.

Fewer Stoppages

Many rules from full 11-a-side hockey have been taken out or simplified to make Quicksticks easier to deliver and play. This also results is fewer stoppages meaning more playing time.
