When Does Field Hockey Season End? [Updated!]

Spread the love

When does field hockey season end? Is it in the fall, winter or spring? The short answer is: it depends on where you are, but it is never truly cold or warm in the sport, so you can expect the season to go on as long as the weather allows it.

Northern Europe, Southern Europe and the Arctic Circle)

In the northern part of Europe, the season generally ends in the fall and some teams don’t play at all during the winter. In Scotland for example, the season usually ends in the first or middle of October. In Sweden and Finland, the season ends in the middle of September and the final matches are usually between September and November. In Germany, the season ends in the middle of October with the last matches being played in the last two months of the year. In the Netherlands, the season mostly ends in the first half of October. In the Scandinavian countries, the winter sport season usually starts in October and ends in April. The longest winter break in the world is in Russia where there is no hockey during the winter months. Instead, they play on a field with a hockey rink on it, which is known as a “sham-ble”. A typical January in Russia is extremely cold, with daytime temperatures dipping to near-freezing and night temperatures struggling to rise above freezing. The good news is that when the sun begins to shine, the temperature is usually high enough for players to be comfortable.

The Middle East and Africa)

In the middle east and Africa, teams can play throughout the year as long as the weather is warm. For example, in Dubai, winter is very hot and humid, so most teams play during the day when the temperature isn’t too high. The first matches of the season are usually between October and December. In Jordan, the season begins in the winter and continues through the year, although most games are played in the summer. In Egypt, the season is relatively short, only lasting from early October until the end of the year. The game there is often referred to as ‘English Cricket on the Nile’ because the pitch is usually soaked due to all the flooding caused by the annual monsoon. When it comes to the winter sport season in Africa, the best time to be there is during the cooling down period after a hard day of competition. Many Africans take the opportunity to get some fresh air by walking or jogging in the streets, and this is when you can tell them apart from the locals by their attire – the hockey players look like any other urban professional due to the short season.

North America)

In North America, the winter sport season usually ends in the spring. However, in the southern part of the country, it can go on as long as it wants. In the northern part of the country, the season starts in the middle of October and ends in April. However, unlike in the rest of the world, the winter sport season there starts with some notable exceptions. In Canada, for example, the season begins in June and ends in October. The same goes for the United States, although they have a longer winter break. The best time to be in Canada or the U.S. is in the spring; the weather is beautiful and the air is fresh. You can walk outside without a jacket and feel the wind on your back as you snap your fingers in the air. This might not seem like such a big deal, but when you are used to temperatures that plunge to near-freezing in the winter and rise to 40 degrees in the summer, even the wind feels chilly. In most cases, the colder the weather, the shorter the hockey season, so you can expect that when the mercury starts dropping, the games will be called off until the temperature rises again. However, sometimes this isn’t the case and teams have played as late as November. This is primarily due to the cold being transversed by sports governing bodies, causing them to postpone the rest of the season.

Australia)

In Australia, the winter sport season is shorter than in other parts of the world. It begins in October and usually ends in April – a fact that not even the most ardent Aussie fan would fail to notice. The game there is typically played on green fields during the day. However, like the rest of the world, the winter sport season in Australia starts getting interesting when the weather turns cold. When this happens, the kangaroos that were out grazing in the morning take the opportunity to come inside and keep warm. At this point, you can typically see most of the Aussies pulling on their ski jackets and walking to the shops to get supplies for the week. When you are in Australia in the winter, the best time to be there is during the day, when the sun is out and the temperatures aren’t too low. This way, you can be sure that you will be able to play your match without having to worry about the weather. The worst time to be there is in the winter. The only way you will know if the game will be on is if the organizers post signs outside the venue, letting people know that the ice has been delivered and the match will go ahead.

Asia)

Asia is quite a big place, so it’s no surprise that there are a lot of variations in terms of the winter sport season there. For example, in Japan, the hockey season starts in October and ends in March, while in China, it lasts longer and is between November and April. The best time to be in Japan or China is in the winter; temperatures are low and you can easily go outside without a jacket. This is important, because when you are used to wearing a thick coat in the winter, taking it off feels like you’ve opened a door to a large refrigerator. The worst time to be in Japan or China is in the summer, when the humidity makes the heat even more intense.

South America)

In South America, the winter sport season is very short, only lasting from November until April. The game there is typically played on a very small pitch, with some teams having to play on a football pitch with half of a hockey rink on it. When it comes to South America, the best time to be there is in the summertime, when the temperatures aren’t too high. You can walk outside in your swimming costume and feel the sun on your back as you splash into the water. Sadly, you won’t be able to do this for very long, as the next thing you know, you’ll have to put on your jacket and walk to your car. The worst time to be in South America is in the winter – the nights can get quite cold, and even the days can feel a bit nippy. This is why most people in the area don’t bother turning up the thermostat, only to find themselves reaching for a jumper when they get home at the end of the day. Walking outside in the winter in South America isn’t recommended, as there are a lot of accidents due to the heavy footfall and slippery conditions outside. It would be better to wait until the summer to do this, as during the day, the temperature isn’t too high and it makes it much easier to get around. Driving in the winter in South America is also dangerous, as there are many sudden changes in weather that can cause you to lose control of your car. This is why many people choose to stay indoors in the winter, watching movies or reading books – some even get a second job, so they can have some extra money to spend on comfort items during these cold weeks.

Pacific Islands)

In the pacific islands, the winter sport season is quite short and it mostly consists of surfing. However, the games are sometimes played in the summer, so it’s not necessarily a case of ‘winters not wanting to play games’ as many people would assume. The best time to be in the islands is in the winter; the days are cold and bright, so you can be sure that you are getting some sunlight, which is good for your skin. The bad news is that the temperatures can drop to very low levels at night, so you will need to be prepared for this too. As it turns out, being in the island in the winter is not for the fainthearted; nights can get very cold and damp, especially in the northern part of the area, so pay attention to weather conditions before setting off to the island.
