THE FASTEST TEAM GAME IN THE WORLD
It is generally accepted that the game began its modern era because of a game that was played by Englishmen on the frozen expanse of Kingston Harbour, Ontario in 1860. This was the first time a puck instead of a ball was used and so is accepted as the origin of the game as completely divorced from field hockey. These first players were Crimean War Veterans from the Royal Canadian Rifles.
In 1879 W F Robertson and R F Smith, both students at McGill University in Montreal devised the original rules and regulations. A square rubber puck was used with
9 players to each side.
