Hockey: Pass And Receive - Moving The Ball

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

DESCRIPTION

Starting on the halfway line, player A dribbles towards the 'defender' (the first line of cones). Player A must use the pull-back and pass diagonally to Player B.

Player B receives the pass, arcs around the cones and passes diagonally to Player C.

Player C receives the pass, arcs around the cones and passes back to Player D on the halfway line.

Continue the pass and move in this way until players have returned to their starting positions.

COACHING POINTS

Look for players to pass and move at match intensity, using a burst of acceleration once they have received the ball - as they would in a match to lose their marker.

Passes should be accurate and reach the intended recipients through the gates (blue cones).

PROGRESSION

Vary the layout of the cones, increasing the distance of the passes (and subsequently the runs between cones) as well as decreasing the size of the passing gates.
