5. Can I put forward ideas for a change of the rules and how?
Yes you can. The best way is to send your suggestion to your National Association and ask them to consider it and forward it to the Hockey Rules Board through the FIH. In this way the formal support of a National Association is associated with the proposal and they will also know how best to put the matter to the Hockey Rules Board. Alternatively, you can send your suggestion to the Secretary of the Hockey Rules Board or to one of the its members.
