Hockey Drill Demonstration

Description

The player with the ball starts to run down the pitch towards the goal. The supporting player stays slightly behind but moves up the pitch on the other side of the line of cones.

When the player with the ball starts to run across the line of cones to the other side the supporting player should at this stage cross over and switch to the other side.

The player with the ball can then pass the ball and the practice continues with the new player in possession.

Once players run past the final cone the player in possession has a shot on goal.

Coaching points

Ball carrier can start on either side of the line of cones.

This practice can be set up on any channel of the pitch, here we have set it up in the centre. The aim is to encourage the players to fill the empty space that has been created by the player with the ball running diagonally.
