Excellent drills, very detailed videos. Useful site for my U15 boys...
Parry, U15 boys Hockey Coach

DESCRIPTION

4 man midfield with the centre half pushing up higher up the pitch, supporting the front 3 and the midfield.

When to use:

This formation will help the team to transfer the ball when in possession.

COACHING POINTS

Disadvantages:

The disadvantage of this set-up is that the back line is playing 1 against 1, so you will need to be confident that the 3 defenders can cope with the opposition's attackers.
