Hockey Drill Demonstration



Coaches objective:

To promote weight transfer whilst on the move, keeping the ball under control with the movement.


To retain possession but eliminate if the defender attempts a challenge. The weight transfer can be great to create a dummy or to accelerate away from a challenge when the skill has been performed.

Coaching points

  1. Encourage the attacker to find a tempo that they're comfortable with to begin with. 
  2. Keep the ball out infront the attacker to encourage them to get their eyes up and impove their vision whilst on the move. 
  3. Ensure the attacker is shifting their weight fully to one side, almost over-exagerrating the movement with their non-standing leg to spring to the other side.
  4. Work the player in both directions so they get used to transfering their weight and drag the ball both ways so they're comfortable when performing the elimination skills.
