Hockey: 1 vs 1 battle for the ball

I love using Sportplan. It's been a great help for co-ordinating hockey...
Laura, Hockey Coach

DESCRIPTION

Two players run to the ball to gain possession. The player in possession tries to score. The player without the ball is the defender and tries to prevent a goal being scored.

COACHING POINTS

  • Keeper should stay on the line to start with.
  • Player pushing the ball should favour one side to encourage a result and avoid battles.
  • Safest direction to push the ball is to the left side of the circle as you look at the goal.
