Hockey: Receiving the ball in space on the reverse stick

I love using Sportplan. It's been a great help for co-ordinating hockey...
Laura, Hockey Coach

DESCRIPTION

Make two squares, one big one with a smaller inner square. 3 players stand inside the small square and a fourth player stands on one of the outside square's corners with the ball.

  1. The outside player passes the ball anti-clockwise to the player running out of the middle, who receives the ball by the next outside cone (cone A).

  2. This player then passes the ball to the next player running out - timing their pass so that it arrives at the outside cone as the runner does.

COACHING POINTS

Timing of the pass and run are essential - both players should be alert at all times.

After each pass the players must return to the middle. It is important that the players don't run out to receive the ball too early; the timing of their pass and run is essential.

  • Basic grip
  • Scan Let the ball run past body
  • Angle stick to control the ball and keep feet pointing forward.
