Hockey Drill Demonstration


Because of the similarities with indoor and outdoor hockey it is beneficial for the teams to practice indoor style games.

Two 6 a-side teams, 2 goals, half a pitch. Put down 2 lines of cones from where the short corner is pushed out from on either side of the goal.

Important: put down spare balls all around the outside of the pitch to allow the teams to pick up the nearest ball to where the ball rolled off, and continue the game immediately.

The rules for this game, as with indoor hockey, are no hitting and no lifted passes.

Coaching points


The biggest mistake that players make is to run with the ball in confined spaces. This invariably leads to a loss of possession.

The better teams are the teams with the players that run off the ball, not with the ball.
