Hockey Drill Demonstration


The attackers (Red Players) have to try and dribble the ball around one of the red cones in the middle and then go back through their gate without being tackled by one of the defenders. Every time the attackers do this successfully they score a point.

The defenders are allowed to roam anywhere they like inside the red grid in order to tackle the attackers.

Coaching points

Attackers - Look ahead to see when the defenders have moved away from their nearest cone and where the unmarked cones are.

Defenders - Be aware of where the attackers are in relation to the red middle cones.
