Hockey Drill Demonstration

Description

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

Disadvantages:

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).

Limitations:

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