Hockey Drill Demonstration


The middle attacker starts with the ball.

The drill starts with one of the other attacking players making a diagonal run forward to try and get ahead of the ball carrier.

It is important that the ball carrier does not run forward. Instead they should run in-field to draw one of the defenders and leave space behind defender 1.

If defender 2 does not go with the player running diagonally through, the pass should be given to this player.

However if the defender 2 does go with the runner the player square should be on for a pass.

Coaching points

This 3 vs 2 should be played with the principle that whenever a player passes the ball square they have to make a supporting run forward.
