Hockey Drill Demonstration


Create lots of small and big islands with cones around a set area.
Every player should have a ball except for 1 or 2 (depending on level of players and area)
Players with the ball try to run from island to island without being caught by the catcher. The catcher is not allowed on the islands. Anybody caught goes to a prison island.

Coaching points

To stop players staying on one island for the duration of the game. One added rule could be that when the coach (monster) enters an island all players (inhabitants) should leave this island as soon as possible and move to a new island.
