Hockey: Elimination Skills: Unopposed V-drag (Right to Left)

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

DESCRIPTION

- Group of players at one end
- A set of coloured gates at the other
- Players run towards the line of cones, and utilise the V-drag from right to left to eliminate the obstruction
- Ball should remain under control and dribbled through the red gate

COACHING POINTS

- Players must get there feet around the cones, as if they were a player to get around
- An initial drag to the right increases the effectiveness of this skill
- The initial dribble of the ball should be made at an angle

PROGRESSION

- Increase the length of the cones requiring a larger drag to be used
- Install a second line of cones to require a further elimination to occur
- Use a goalkeeper and have the players shoot on goal after the V-drag. Having something else to consider during a drill will increase a players ability to think during a game
