Hockey Drill Demonstration

Description

First set out some 2 vs 2 pitches consisting of 2 goals, 15 to 20m apart with each goal being 1 stick length wide.

Once the pitches are laid out, number the pitches 1,2,3,4, etc with 4 players and one ball per pitch.

The aim of the game is to try and score goals from about 2m out.

The length of the game is approximately 2-3 minutes long and starts on the first whistle and stopped by the second whistle.

Coaching points

When the game is stopped it is important that there is a winner on each pitch. In the case of a draw the winners is decided on the throw of a stick (flat or round).

Once every pitch has a winner all the winners move up one pitch, (so if the players are on pitch 3 they move to pitch 4). The losers do the opposite, and move down one pitch.

The winners on pitch 1 and the loser on the lowest pitch have nowhere to move so they stay on their pitches.

Once everyone has moved the game can start again.
