Chapter 1: History of Hockey

The history behind this sport is very interesting. Hockey is claimed to be invented in Windsor, Nova
Scotia, Canada. It started as a Scottish sport called Shinty. Canada caught on. Then a man named James
Craig Invented a new type of Shinty. He called it Hockey.

Craig completely changed Shinty. The wooden paddles were now long sticks with a long, dull
blade on the end. It was now played on an ice surface like a pond, and in the modern world today, we
have worm rinks with a cold ground to keep the ice surface cool. It can also be played on a floor with
either inline skates or shoes.

Chapter 2: Basic Skills

Now that we are finished with the history of Hockey, let’s move on to the basic skills,
stickhandling, passing, and shooting. Stickhandling is where you move the puck side to side, or back
and forth, to get around players/opponents. Passing helps you score and also get around opponents.

Chapter 3: Types of Shots and how to do them

One of the bigger skills that you need to know how to do in hockey is shooting. Let’s tell you the
the types of shots and how to do them. The first shot we are going to cover is the snapshot. The
snapshot is used when you need to get a quick but powerful shot away. You can perform this shot by
pulling the puck toward you with the toe of your stick and then releasing in a really fast motion.

Our next shot is the wrist shot. The wrist shot is the most consistent shot in hockey. To complete
this shot, you must drag the puck from the heel of your stick to the toe of your stick, release, and then
follow through the puck. It is the most effective shot in hockey because you can aim it much more
persistently than a snapshot or slapshot.

The slapshot is the next shot we will cover. The slapshot is the most powerful but least effective
shot in hockey. The fastest shot ever recorded in the NHL(National Hockey League) was 108.8
mph(miles per hour) was by Zdeno Chara. Let’s get on to how to do the slapshot now. To do this you
must wind up by lifting your stick up just above your waste and then following through the puck with
your stick.

Chapter 4: Passing

Passing is when you or your teammate has the puck and you get the puck from your teammate or
you give the puck to your teammate. A pass is the exact same motion as a wrist shot but not as hard
and on the ground. A saucer pass however is the same motion as a normal pass but slightly elevated. It
is used when you need to give a pass but a bunch of sticks are in the way.

Chapter 5: Penalties

Penalties are our next topic. Roughing is our first penalty. That is where you try to take the puck
from your opponent, but accidentally(or if you try) take them out and cause them to get injured in the
process. Oh, and I forgot to tell you, if you get a penalty, you usually spend 2 minutes in the penalty
box, if you fight, you spend 5 minutes off, and sometimes you get a game misconduct, which means
you get kicked out of the game.

Our next penalty is slashing. That is when you go and try to hit on the top of the stick instead of
trying to lift underneath it. If you slash above the hands it can seriously injure them. If you miss trying
to go underneath the stick that is a high stick.

Hooking is not as serious of a penalty, but can seriously affect your team. That is when you take
the blade of your stick and wrap it around your opponents body. It could also trip someone if you wrap
your stick around the opponents feet.

Chapter 6: Where they play

Professional hockey teams play in huge stadiums. They have over 15,000 seats and crazy locker
rooms.
