Hockey Drill Demonstration


The player without the ball (player 2) runs towards the opposite cone and communicates to their partner that they are ready to receive the ball.

After making the straight pass player 1 runs to the opposite cone to receive a square pass from player 2.

Player 2 must adjust their body and footwork in order to receive the ball.

Coaching points

Decelerate quickly at the cone to get a strong low base making sure of the trap or stop.

When passing make sure the shoulders are pointing at the target and depending on the type of pass use the correct footwork and technique.

Use the reference techniques of hitting, pushing and slapping.
