Floor hockey was introduced as a Special Olympics sport in 1970. Floor hockey is a family of indoor hockey games, usually in the style of ice hockey, that are played on flat floor surfaces, such as a basketball court. As in other hockey codes, players on each team attempt to shoot a ball or puck into a goal using sticks, usually with a curved end.
Special Olympics, Inc. is the International Governing Body for Floor Hockey, so all rules are created by Special Olympics. However, Floor Hockey is unique within Special Olympics because the sport is played at every skill level using the exact same rules. Another important rule of Special Olympics Floor Hockey is that all players on the team, with the exception of the goalie, are required to play equal amount of time during each game.
