Hockey Drill Demonstration


This exercise is designed to encourage defenders to force attacking players to move onto the defenders forehand

The player with the ball tries to run through between the 2 cones, indicating the maximum 10 points.

This should encourage the defender to try and force the player onto their open stick side, away from this high scoring gate!

Coaching points

It's important for the defenders to cover their feet with the stick.

Defenders should stand with one foot forward and the other behind.
