    I'm making some training materials and am in need of a PDF or a TIF or GIF (or other art file) of a diagram of a hockey pitch (FIH lines only). I drew one that is "okay" but it isn't to perfect scale.

    Thanks (I hope!)...Cris

    Okay, I whipped one up for you. I've been meaning to do this for myself for a while.

    It's just a secondary indicator of the 15m/top of the circle - so those crazy out players can line up their 15m hits.

    Cris, please clear out your Inbox, I cannot send you a reply PM.

    Here is the content of what I said:

    I literally did a screen capture of the pitch diagram from the online Rules of Hockey (page 48). I made it as big as I could, and buffed out the measurements for you. I could resave it as a TIFF but it would still be 965 x 595. I'm sure you could do the same on your end.

    I have a .pdf which is a scan of a sheet from a coaching board that's only about 2/3 of a 8.5x11" page. I've emailed it to you.

    Otherwise, that's all I've got.

    There is an image in the Wikipedia article, but it also has the measuremnts marked in (and it's a .svg). however, all measuremtns are still given in imperial (possibly less of an issue for you), and I think it's slightly outdated in one or two of the markings that are shown.

    The goal always looks so small on these pitch diagrams. Why does it feel so big when you are in it? :( rofl

    I stumbled across Hockey Pitch Dimensions on the England Hockey downloads page, and remembered this thread.

    Taking a closer look it is the diagram from Rule Books 1997 to 2001, showing metric dimensions at one end of the pitch and imperial at the other. Maybe not quite what you need Cris - Americans prefer feet to yards don't they?
