Hockey: Jab Tackle

Great site. An absolute must for coaches who are willing to change...
Ignatius

DESCRIPTION

The jab can be used as a form of delay either to dispossess a player with the ball if the ball is away from the stick or to tempt the player to take their eyes off the ball and possibly lose possession.

The stick jabs out towards the ball with the left hand and then returns to both hands.

After the jab the defender returns to the original balanced position.

The grip on the stick will change slightly, the hands turn, usually palms upwards.

COACHING POINTS

The jab can be used to manipulate the attacker into moving the ball into a better position for the defender to steal possession
