Hockey Drill Demonstration

Description

in this video the defender times their run to intercept the pass to the left winger.

To practice this skill set up players in groups of three, with one feeder, one attacker and one defender.

The defender should be standing slightly ahead and on the inside of the attacker to ensure they get to the ball first.

When the feeder plays the ball up towards the two players they should both set off to try and win the ball.

Coaching points

It is important to commit to the interception. However, if the defender moves too early the attacker will have the chance to move and the defender will have over committed, thus losing the opportunity to gain possession.
