Hockey: 1 v 1 - Channelling

Great site. An absolute must for coaches who are willing to change...
Ignatius

DESCRIPTION

Split your group into two teams - defenders and attackers.

Players with the ball have to run around the cone and try and score. Players without ball also have to run around the cone, and then try and stop the other player scoring.

COACHING POINTS

Important that the ball starts on the right. Defenders should avoid over running the attacker, allowing the attacker to come round their reverse. Channelling is achieved by good footwork.

Ensure sideways body position, stick fairly low to the ground. Body position should be preventing the attacker driving towards goal and from cutting back with the ball to pass infield.

PROGRESSION

Place the cone further away, to avoid the defender getting to the ball too early.

Once defenders are comfortable with the concept, move their starting point further back so they have to recover their position
