Hockey Grips

The grip is the way your player holds the hockey stick with their hands.

There is little variation in how a player can hold a hockey stick, but as you execute various skills players, will slide their hands up and down the stick. When dribbling, the top hand, nearly always left, does 90% of the work, whilst the right hand is looser and allows the stick to rotate freely within and simply supports the stick, as you dribble the ball.

Starting with the basic hockey grip the videos below will ensure your players are able to dribble, play reverse sweep, take a shot at goal and even understand how to run with the stick when not on the ball.
