Ball hockey, whether played on ice or hard surface, is a sport that offers a total-body workout that includes both aerobic and anaerobic elements.

The fast-paced nature of the ball hockey provides aerobic exercise, while the reliance on all of the body’s major muscle groups also makes it an anaerobic activity. The result is a number of health benefits to the body, both physically and mentally. But with benefits come risks. Hockey is no exception, and safety should always be a priority when practicing the sport so that health benefits are not negated.
