Hockey: Defence the circle

I really appreciate the Hockey Coaching on Sportplan. The senior girls...
Petra

DESCRIPTION

Defender passes the ball. Attackers go 1 on 1 and try to penetrate the circle. Defenders priority is to stop the player getting through gate 1, then gate 2, then gate 3. The defender engages as far away from the the circle edge as possible. Work the left and right sides.

COACHING POINTS

  • Defending player should avoid getting too close to the player attacking the circle. To avoid the player chuck and running the ball in the circle.
  • Defender should sprint as soon as the ball is passed, and slow down when the attacker has the ball under control.
