About Field Hockey in Pan Sports
Copenhagen Black Swans is Pan Idræts Field hockey team. The team was established in November 2011 and started in earnest in the summer of 2012.
We have participated in World Outgames in Antwerp in 2013, PinkHockey tournament in London in 2014, EuroGames in Stockholm 2015, PinkHockey in Berlin 2016, and outgames in Miami In 2017. Every year we participate in PinkHockey's LGBT tournament.
We have been part of the Danish Hockey Union's 1st division tournament since April 2016, where we play matches against some other Danish clubs.
Briefly about the game
Field hockey is a fast-paced game that is reminiscent of football - the way you run and the ball is played around the field. However, field hockey is a hockey sport, so a stick of wood or plastic that is curved at one end is used. The ball in the game is made of plastic and it is about the size of a tennis ball, but much heavier.
Outdoors, there are 11 players on a team, 10 players and a goalkeeper. The size of the pitch is slightly smaller than a football pitch.
Match time: 2 halves of 35 minutes are played.
Anyone can join
Field hockey is good fitness and coordination training. You get lots of exercise, and everyone can participate - regardless of physical strength and gender. It is not a violent game as one might immediately think, it is more based on technique and subtleties. It is a "no" contact sport.
There are 3 coaches who make sure we get a good workout every week. We are currently 20+ members of field hockey - and we really want to be more. As field hockey is a relatively new sport in Pan Sports, you get the opportunity to learn the basics of the game and help shape the team and the community.
Everyone is welcome to come and try playing field hockey. All new ones get a buddy the first few times, which will help you get well into the game and the team.
