Hockey Drill Demonstration

Description

From the ready position; the keeper lifts a leg and takes a wide step before driving the opposite knee towards the ground.

Coaching points

This is similar to the move a cricket player would use to stop a ball in the field. The paddle and stick are used to fill in the gaps and extend the reach of the keeper. The player ‘watches’ the ball onto the pads before pushing back on the front foot and returning to the ready position.
