The RUSH Winter League is a field hockey league played on an indoor court as a modified version of indoor hockey, initially played as a wintertime substitute for progressive hockey players to continue enjoying their sport year round. Our Winter League is divided into two groups: Division One (Varsity players) & Division Two (Junior Varsity). All games are played at the Escondido Sports Center in Kit Carson Park in the roller rink. Teams play on two full-sized enclosed rink courts that are smaller than an outdoor field, yet bigger than a basketball court. The enclosed rink keeps the ball in play and creates a fast, flowing and exciting game .
- Hitting the ball is illegal, but sweeping, flicking and 3D skills are allowed.
- You can score from anywhere.
- Four field players and GK.
- No Penalty Corners.
- Long Corners if GK/defending team clears ball out over the boards.
- On free hits, the ball must travel 5 meters (pass or dribble) before a shot on goal.
- Three periods of 11 mins per game.
Division one – Varsity
Division two – JV
