Playere lined up in a relay with 1 ball.
Player starts by running with the ball into the grid and pass the ball to the player opposite. Player 2 has to run onto the moving ball collect and keep moving to pass the ball back to the other side .for player 3 to run onto the ball.
Each player has to run to the back of the opposite side each time they have passed the ball.
Good practice for learning to intercept the ball in defence and continue to attack all in one move.
Bottom hand on the stick needs to be low and strong.
Keep the stick head in contact with the pitch through out the move other wise the ball will spin away and get to close to the feet.
Two lines of players with 1 ball per grid.
Player 1 passes the ball to player 2 who runs to the opposite cone. Player 3 makes their intercepting run as the player makes their pass, trying to intercept the ball before it reaches player its intended recipient. If they successfully intercept the ball they make a pass to player 4.
Exercise start again.
Player 1 runs straight to receive the ball from player 4 and player 2 has to try and intercept the ball and pass the ball to player 5.
Pass the ball to the supporting player who then passes the ball wide missing out the other central player.
The practice can be done with 2 balls at the same time.
2 Players start in end zones opposite each other with the aim of trying to pass the ball to each other without getting intercepted by the player in the middle.
Players from the side of the area, pass the ball to a player in the goal. This player, on receiving the ball can try to run the ball under control out of the area across the 23 metre line. The player coming from the 23m line has to try and win the ball and score a goal.
- Ball is passeed to the left foot - Player receiving deliberately traps the ball on the reverse side
- Utilising a reverse stick pick challenge - 2 lines of players - One player will dribble in a straight line - The defending playing has to come from the left side and try to steal the ball

Each player has to run to the back of the opposite side each time they have passed the ball.
Two players with one ball position them selves either side of a line. Ball carrier on the left and the other player on the right hand side of the line. Player with the ball then starts to run and tries to cross the line.The player with the ball can only do this by stopping or accelerating, he/she is not allowed to run back on him/herself.
Setup as shown. Blue players have to run along the line and try and lose their marker by stopping and starting, as well as using a change of pace. Players take it in turns to be the marker.
Players are split up into pairs One player starts with the ball and runs about 5 yards into space, with the defender behind them to the left The defender then must hook their stick round in front of the attacker to steal the ball if successful, the defender should change pace to accelerate away from the attacker that lost possession.
- Set up a rectangular box - One forward and one defender - Ball is bounced in, and the forward has to try and use elimination skills to get past the defender - The defender has try and gain possession of the ball
The players each have a ball. On the coaches command the defending team comes in to the area and tries to hit all the balls out. If a player gets his ball hit out then they can stay in and help their team mates by finding space to receive a pass. Progression: Change the numbers for this drill to 3 defenders with 8 attackers with 8 balls.
- Ball is fed into a forward on the half way line T- spot - Two defenders - One defender is set slightly ahead of the forward - The second defender is on the half way line, and must run back to assist his team once the initial ball has been fed in

The variety of sessions across sports - sometimes we steal session ideas from one sport and use them with another.
As we enter the business end of the competition, we take a look at the remaining eight teams and the key talking points surrounding each side.
