Hockey: Widening the Goal - Prog 1

I really appreciate the Hockey Coaching on Sportplan. The senior girls...
Petra

DESCRIPTION

- 3 active players
- Goal is to attack down the baseline
- Avoid entering the D on a shallow angle
- First player drives forward, then passs the ball wide
- Second player picks the ball, runs baseline and plays the 90 ball back
- The ball is then hit towards the back post for the spare player to deflect towards goal
- Can either run in 3s, or have players move into the next position

COACHING POINTS

- The strike towards the back post should be controlled and along the floor, increasing the likelihood of a deflection
- Deflector should be low, with the stick initially loose in their hand, to allow quick change side if necessary

PROGRESSION

- Have players time their runs so they don't stand still and take up space
- Add in a defender to disrupt play
- Practice from the left hand side of the pitch
