Hockey Drill Demonstration


Three players with a ball start in the grid furthest away from the goal with one defender in the first grid and one defender in the second grid.

The practice is for the 3 players to progress through the 2 grids and score a goal.

Defenders can only defend inside their own grid.

Coaching points

It is important that the 3 players play very controlled and do not lose possession

If the strikers are finding it too easy to progress through the grids you can introduce a time limit, such as 10 seconds, in which they must successfully pass the ball from one grid to the other.

Lastly you can allow the defenders to track back but only once the ball has left their grid.
