Hockey Drill Demonstration

Description

in this video the defender times their run to intercept the pass to the right 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 in line with their opposite number, on the inside of the attacker running from right to left.

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

Coaching points

To begin with the attacker should wait for the ball to reach them (something which they should never do, they should always meet the ball!)

As the drill progresses allow the attacker to contest the ball more.

Rotate player roles regularly.
