Hockey Drill Demonstration

Description

- Pitch split into 9 zones (3 x 3)
- 6 vs 6
- Multiple players from each team in one area
- Forwards (white) can dribble ball from one area to another
- Defenders (red) can tackle
- Players should post between the different areas to move up the pitch
-If ball is turned over, drill continues, with the red team becoming the forwards and the white team becoming the defenders

Coaching points

- Players should still utilise enitre pitch space
- Goalkeepers should be vocal, as this will assist the defensive set up
- Ball pace is key

Progression

- Add in additional players to restrict space and increase pressure
- Reduce number of players to increase intensity of drill
-  Introduce rules (number of touches, only the Goalkeeper can talk, maximum time spent in each box, must change box once you've played a pass etc.)
