Hockey/Variations in Football, Cricket and Hockey games.


Dear Martial

Do you feel there could be variations in Cricket, Hockey and Football games if played with 12 or 10 players on both sides?


At a rec level - this could work to allow for more kids to play.
Space might be a challenge - especially for ice hockey.

At a pro level it's not likely to happen.
All the history and records / stats would become less significant and is actually a big part of the "games"!!

Hope this helps!

I have been playing amateur hockey for 48 years... from Youth hockey up to Jr. "B", and now still play in adult leagues. I have coached youth hockey for 10+ years and have been an "active student" of all aspects of learning, playing and coaching hockey for past 8 years. I offer not only some X`s & O`s about hockey but also some experience in practical, philosophical, spiritual and motivational aspects of playing and learning the game. My son is now 26 - just done with his carreer through College. He went through all the hurdles to get to Juniors and played there for 3 years, then College for 4. I am happy to share our experience during that journey.
