Abstract

Despite the popularity of field hockey very little research has investigated the physical requirements of, and the responses to, a game of field hockey. This study investigated the physiological characteristics of six elite women hockey players, their movement patterns during a game and the accompanying acute physiological responses. Players were chosen from the Victorian State Women's Field Hockey team on the basis of playing positions characterised by a high work-rate.
