Hockey Overload situations Drills

Hockey overloads occur when a team has more attacking players than defending players in one area of the pitch - giving them a numerical superiority and subsequently an improved chance of scoring.

To exploit these attacking overload opportunities in hockey your players will need close control, quality dribbling and assured passing skills.

If your team are outnumbered by the opposition when defending then the hockey videos below will teach them how to hold up the players by shadowing, shepherding and challenging the players to hold up play and give your team a chance to recover and get back into the correct defensive positions. Includes drills to develop skills including, posting-up, and overlapping.
