The International Hockey Federation (FIH) has released the revised free hit rules because of the great interest in them.
The next Rules of Hockey will take affect from 1 May 2009 and the full set of rules will be published as soon as possible.
Field Hockey Canada encourages our member clubs, teams, and officials to begin experimenting with the new rules before they come into effect.
Please visit the FIH website to view the new free hit rules.
