Hockey Drill Demonstration


On the command the player with the ball runs around the blue cones, with the player without a ball running around the red cones. It is a race to see the first one back.

Coaching points

When running anti-clockwise it is a lot easier for players to move the ball first then let their feet follow.

When running around clockwise its advisable for the player to leave the ball behind, move their feet around the ball before picking up the ball again. This allows the player to get a tighter line to the cones.


The two red cones should be moved according to the skill level of the players if low the cones should be further away from the blue cones compared to when the skill level is high ( you know you have it just right if the race is close each time)
