Why do field hockey players wear skirts?

I know how other people wonder why Volleyball players wear spandex, and its because it's easier to move around and comfortable. But I don't see how skirts help athletic abilities. So why do they wear skirts.


Ok, to all of you who are like "Guys who play field hockey dont wear skirts hurr durr"

I know that. I was implying that it was girl field hockey players I was talking about. And I didn't even know there were male field hockey teams. Maybe cause my school only has a girls team.

Oh and, I'm talking about FIELD hockey. Not ice hockey or whatever other hockey there is.

    I play volleyball & I wear spandex. They don't effect how I play in any way.

    & I don't know about the skirts. I can't stand wearing skirts!
