Hockey: Drag change direction

Excellent, used the drills at our first training session today with...
Shane, Hockey Coach

DESCRIPTION

Set up two lines of staggered cones outside the shooting circle.

Players take it in turn to run with the ball straight at the left side of the line of cones.

When they are within a couple of steps of the cones players make a sharp change of direction and drag the ball to the right and then run at the second line of cones.

Players then perform a second drag before then having a shot on goal!

COACHING POINTS

You want to see a definite change or direction with a burst of pace - as if players were trying to beat an opposition defender.

Challenge your players to mask their intentions, possibly even throwing in a dummy to wrong foot the defender.
