Hockey isn’t just for the Winter Olympics.

Field hockey actually predates its icy counterpart, dating back to the Middle Ages. And you can watch plenty of the fast-paced sport during the Rio Olympics.

The United States sent a women’s team to Rio de Janeiro, and all of their games will be televised and available online. Here’s how you can watch.
