Playing conditions dictate your team's choice of field hockey balls. Longstreth carries the Olympic standard, Kookaburra field hockey balls, which have been used exclusively in Olympic Games since 1956. Longstreth also carries balls for artificial turf, with dimpled surfaces that give the balls added speed. This is also advantageous on wet turf (whether natural or artificial).
Smooth balls are ideal for indoor use. Generally, indoor balls are hollow and on the small end of the acceptable size range. Smooth balls are also acceptable for outdoor play, as with the Gryphon NFHS-approved game ball. Not sure about playing conditions? Choose Longstreth's hollow, multi-turf balls in five brilliant colors.
For training and practice, look to the Gryphon Minky Ball, smaller and lighter than a game ball. It works equally well on grass or artificial turf. Do not overlook a way to carry around practice and game balls efficiently and suavely: ball bags keep you looking in control even carrying a dozen balls.
Turn to Longstreth and its solid history of helping athletes with the right equipment for field hockey, from field hockey sticks to the simple, yet elegant, field hockey balls.
