Hockey Drill Demonstration


Players have a ball each and start from the 23 metre line. Coaches or helpers are standing with their back to the players whilst counting to ten (at any speed). During the counting the players are trying to get across the half way line with the ball to win the game. However, when the coaches reach ten they can turn around and catch the players. The players should try and get back to the safety zone behind the 23 metre line. Any players caught help the coaches catch the rest of the players.


Coaching points

  • Players have to run with the ball close to the stick.
