Hurling is a sport in which two teams compete. A maximum of 15 players can be found on each team.

The breakdown of the players is as follows:

One goalie
a total of 6 defenders
a pair of midfielders
Six attacking players
Three players pair up with the marks on the other side.


Typically, a game or competition is divided into two 25–35 minute halves.
It is impossible to pick up the sliotar (ball) by hand immediately from the ground. The sliotar must be rolled, jabbed, lifted, or flicked into the hand using the hurley.
The sliotar is in the air or bouncing around the ground when it can be grabbed.
At most two hand transfers are possible with the sliotar. The count is reset whenever the sliotar touches the ground.
The hurley can be used to strike the sliotar either on the ground or in the air.
Additionally, the sliotar can be passed or kicked while being handled entirely with one hand. One cannot throw the sliotar.
A maximum of four consecutive steps, or the time it takes to take four steps, can be taken while holding the sliotar in one hand.
There is no time limit on how long the sliotar can be balanced on the stick.


direct hand contact with the sliotar when it is on the ground.
Overplaying the sliotar involves catching it more than twice with the hand or carrying it while moving more than four paces.
She was playing aggressively and illegally or physically challenging a player while the sliotar was not there (off-the-ball challenge).
One player may not take or hold the hurley of another player.


Hurling is a physically demanding sport, and some physical contact is allowed as long as it’s done to grab the sliotar.
A reasonable shoulder fee is accepted.


When the sliotar crosses the crossbar, which is located above the goalkeeper and between the goalposts, it scores a point.
A goal is scored when the sliotar travels under the crossbar and into the goal between the goals. A plan carries three points.
In addition to “set pieces” like free throws and sideline cuts, goals and points can also be scored during play.


Either they are rolling the sliotar into the hand with the hurley (roll lift) or scooping the sliotar into the hand with the hurley (jab lift).
I ran while balancing and using the sliotar on the hurley (solo run).
It is striking the sliotar by tossing it into the air and using the hurley to hit it once it is on the ground (ground pull or hurl).
I was traveling on the ground or in the air while striking the sliotar (doubling on the sliotar).
I am taking it for Free: without manipulating the sliotar, picking it up, and striking it in a single motion.
Cutting the turf from the ground when it crosses a sideline is known as a sideline cut.
I am catching the sliotar in the air to field it.
A player who uses their hurley to stop another player from striking the sliotar is said to be blocking a shot. When the striker throws the sliotar into the air, this tackle must be made from in front of them.
Using the hurley to stop another player from hitting the sliotar is known as “hooking.” This is done from behind the striker, who must have their hurley intercepted as the strike is being made.
