Hockey Drill Demonstration


This system gives support to the backline as well as the midfield.

It relies on the 2 forwards to do a lot of running in defence and play further forward when their team is in possession.

When to use:

If your team is very fit and want to force the other team back by creating overloads in your defence and midfield.

Coaching points


The disadvantage of this system is that you only have 2 forwards, however they can be assisted by the wide midfielders, who can support the attack (see image).


This formation should only be played with a very fit midfield and is not recommended to any team below a 2nd team level.
