Hockey Passing & Receiving Drills

Passing and receiving are fundamental skills in the game of field hockey and determine the success of your team. The best teams make the ball do the work - and use passing to tire out their opposition.

Using the passing drills and videos below your players will build the skills they need to confidently pass the ball to each other and improve their technique when receiving the ball using the stick, whether it is a slap pass along the ground, a push pass to their reverse stick or an aerial pass far up field. Includes drills to develop skills, for receiving the ball on the reverse stick, push passing, aerials and the chip hit.
