Hockey basics - Scoring
Around the Academy:

Each goal is worth one point.

A goal can only be scored from inside the shooting circle - a semi-circular area in front of the opponents' goal.

Goals scored from outside this area are disallowed.

To get into a goal-scoring position, the ball must be passed or dribbled down the field with the flat side of the stick.

The entire ball must cross over the line.

The familiar thud you hear when a goal is scored is the ball hitting the backboard.

But the ball doesn't have to hit the board for the goal to count!
