Figure Skating
FIGURE SKATING is a sport in which individuals, duos, or groups perform on figure skates on ice. It was the first winter sport included in the Olympics , in 1908 . The four Olympic disciplines are men\'s singles, ladies\' singles , pair skating and ice dancing . Non-Olympic disciplines include synchronized skating and four skating . From novice through senior-level competition, skaters generally perform two programs (short and long) which, depending on the discipline, may include spins , jumps , moves in the field , lifts , throw jumps , death spirals and other elements or moves. The blade has a groove on the bottom creating two distinct edges — inside and outside. Judges prefer that skaters glide on one edge of the blade and not on both at the same time, which is referred to as a flat edge. During a spin, skaters use the "sweet spot" of the blade, which is the roundest portion of the blade, just behind the pick and near the middle of the blade

Cue Sports
CUE SPORTS (sometimes written CUESPORTS), also known as BILLIARD SPORTS, are a wide variety of games of skill generally played with a cue stick , which is used to strike billiard balls and thereby cause them to move around a cloth -covered billiards table bounded by elastic bumpers known as cushions . Historically, the umbrella term was BILLIARDS. While that familiar name is still employed by some as a generic label for all such games, the word's usage has splintered into more exclusive competing meanings in various parts of the world. For example, in British and Australian English , "billiards" usually refers exclusively to the game of English billiards
English billiards
, while in American and Canadian English
Canadian English
it is sometimes used to refer to a particular game or class of games, or to all cue games in general, depending upon dialect and context

Field Hockey
FIELD HOCKEY is a team sport of the hockey family. The earliest origins of the game date back to the Middle Ages in England, Scotland, France and the Netherlands. The game can be played on a grass field or a turf field as well as an indoor board surface. Each team plays with eleven players, including the goalie. Players use sticks made out of wood, carbon fibre, fibre glass or a combination of carbon fibre and fibre glass in different quantities (with the higher carbon fibre stick being more expensive and less likely to break) to hit a round, hard, plastic ball. The length of the stick depends on the player's individual height. Only one end of the stick is allowed to be used. Goalies often have a different kind of stick, however they can also use an ordinary field hockey stick. The specific goal-keeping sticks have another curve at the end of the stick, this is to give them more surface area to save the ball

Away Colours
AWAY COLOURS are a choice of coloured clothing used in team sports . They are required to be worn by one team during a game between teams that would otherwise wear the same colours as each other, or similar colours. This change prevents confusion for officials, players, and spectators. In most sports, it is the visiting or road team that must change – second-choice kits are commonly known as AWAY KITS or CHANGE KITS in British English
British English
, and ROAD UNIFORMS in American English . Some sports leagues mandate that away teams must always wear an alternative kit, while others simply state that the two teams' colours should not match. In some sports, conventionally the home team has changed its kit (such as in rugby union and early association football ). In most cases, a team wears its away kit only when its primary kit would clash with the colours of the home team
