The total number of players on the field is five per team. Three of them play with a classical Hockey Stick (H-stick), they can have it, for example, attached to a hand - these are called "hooks" in the local hanty. These players control the ball, make up the game and shoot goals. There are also 2 players with the so-called T-stick ("t-stick"), one of them is keeper.
What is the T-stick different about? This is a special T-shaped stick that is fixed to the wheelchair. The player controls the ball by moving his wheelchair. This stick is used by players who can not keep a classic stick. These may be, for example, the players who control their wheelchair by mouth. The role of these players, however, is no less important than "hookers". Expect of goalkeeper, whose meaning is unquestionable, there is a "T-stick" in the field whose main task is to create so-called blocks. In practice, it means that the movement of its wheelchair creates space for its attackers or vice versa, in the defensive phase, makes life unpleasant to the opponent attackers.
