Hockey Drill Demonstration
Player has the ball, and defenders close in, once they have 'committed', the player plays the ball to another square. The defenders in other squares are not allowed to close to within 2m until the player has received the ball.
Passes can either be dinked, pushed through a defender's feet, or something more inventive. Want players with the ball to have an awareness of the weaknesses in the defender's stance (too low: lift the ball through, too high: hard push at their feet etc), and be aware of where available passes are.
