Hockey Drill Demonstration


Set up a small pitch with a single goal and 4 "gates" made up of cones or throwdowns.

Small sided teams, attackers versus defenders + GK

Attackers score 2 points for a goal, 3 points for a goal scored by deflection.

Defenders get 1 point every time the ball goes through one of the gates in any direction, by any means.

Coaching points

Defenders score by channeling attackers out to the sides or clearing ball down the wing.

Attackers need to beat the GK and get extra points for deflections.

Change relative size of teams or add scoring zone or D to influence result.

Change number/size/position of defenders gates to put emphasis on different parts of the game.
