Is horse riding an extreme sport?

VERY! Many people think it's easy, just sitting on a horse and letting it do all the work. This is very, very wrong. No matter what discipline it is a lot of work, a lot of muscle, a lot of thinking, and a lot of courage.

There are many arguments saying how this sport of harder than that, and so on and so on.

Bottom line:

All sports are difficult in their own way.

What are some useful wing attack netball tips?

Wing AttackIt does help to be fast but WA needs to be smart. They need to know when to change things up (e.g a centre pass- not always running to the sam spot) and they need to be good at reading the shooting circle, know when the shooters want it and where. WA is a heaps fun position as it is actually the controller on the court not the centre, the centre is the fill in and follows the flow of the court, the WA creates the flow.

Field Hockey

How long is a field hockey match?

A field hockey game has two halves of 35 minutes (this is often shortened for younger grades and some tournaments) with a halftime of 5 minutes (also often increased to 10 minutes in higher grades and internationals). Time is stopped at certain points in the game - at the umpire's discretion only - for injuries, penalty strokes, personal penalties and disruptions to the game.

Depending on competition rules, the game may be lengthened by a set amount of time in the event of a draw/tie; in international competition this is often a period or two of 7.5 minutes, ending as soon as one team scores. If the score is still tied, the game moves to penalty strokes where 5 players from each team take alternate turns to score a goal from the penalty spot against the goalkeeper. If scores are still tied after the 10 strokes (5 from each team) then the game is set to sudden death - the first team to fall behind in score loses.

Thus, a game normally lasts around 80 minutes. An injury or other timestop can bring this up to 90 minutes. A very badly behaved game can take this further to 95. A game that requires extra time will extend the game by up to 20 minutes, and strokes can add another 10 minutes (more for sudden death). The longest a game might take is then about 120 minutes, or 2 hours from starting whistle to finishing goal.
