Hockey: First touch out of the box

Excellent, used the drills at our first training session today with...
Shane, Hockey Coach

DESCRIPTION

Player 1 passes the ball into player 2 in the square.
With the first touch try and get the ball out of the square.
Outside players stay out but can move anywhere around the outside.
Player needs to be the player in the middle getting out

COACHING POINTS

The player deflecting the ball out of the box should not force a pass in a particular direction. Since they have 3 options available, they should pick the pass which is most suitable to the ball being passed in

PROGRESSION

Increase the complexity of the pass coming into the box

Have players on the outside move, making the player inside prescan for available passes
