Activity 1 - The Games

Aim: To develop Unihoc skills.

Rules:
• Each team will consist of up to 6 players including a goalkeeper.
• The team should have the same coloured sticks.
• Substitutes are allowed at any time of the game from outside the court.
• The game starts with a drop ball or bully-off between two players in the middle of the court.
• After each break the game will restart with a drop or bully-off from the nearest place the game was stopped.
• There is no offside rule in the game and players are allowed to be any place on the court except the goal area. 3
• Free stroke will be exactly where the foul was called.
• No defensive player may be closer to the puck than 3 metres from the end of the stick.
• A free stroke can score directly.
• A penalty spot at each end should be 3 metres from the goal line.
• All players should stay behind the penalty spot.
• The ball or puck is still in play if a goal does not result.

Goalkeepers
• The goalkeeper’s area should be defined before play commences — no other play is allowed into that area.
• Goalkeepers play with a stick.
• The goalkeeper is allowed to grab the puck / ball.
• The goalkeeper may throw or kick the puck / ball to other players.
• The goalkeeper must stay in the goal area during play.
• If the goalkeeper steps outside the goal area a free stroke should be awarded.

Tips / Advice:
The natural progression from the game of unihoc is field hockey or floor ball. If there are any young people who enjoy the game and want to get involved then there are plenty of sticks available.

Safety Issues / Risk Assessment:
There is a risk that the young people can get silly and start swinging their sticks around, it is imperative that they understand the rules and keep the stick below knee height in two hands. Ensure that the hall space being used is sufficiently large enough for this game and that any obstructions or hazards are removed before play commences.

Activity 2 - Numbers Games

Aim: To play the game in a different way.

Instructions:

• Set up goals at each end and place the ball or puck in the centre with a stick on either side.
• Pair the young people of equal ability and put them on opposite teams. Give them a number (starting from 1) and send them to opposite corners.
• If there is an odd number of young people then give one of the young people on the other team 2 numbers.
• The young people must line up along the wall in number order starting from the corner.
• The idea is that when you call a number, the numbered young person from each team must race to the middle, pick up a stick and try and score in the opponents goal.

Tips / Advice:
• Rather than just calling out the numbers you can call out clues instead which should lead to the young person’s number. For example, sides on a square, toes on a foot, days in a week etc. or a sum.

• If you don’t have Unihoc sticks use a rolled up newspaper and small ball.

Safety Issues / Risk Assessment:
There is a risk that the young people can get silly and start swinging their sticks around, it is imperative that they understand and keep the stick below knee height.
