Hockey Drill Demonstration


Set out 2 grids that are attached by a common line with 3 attackers and 1 defender in each.

3 Players, with one ball, in one grid keep possession of the ball and try to pass the ball to the other three players in the other grid.

Once they have done this the other three players must also try to keep possession in order to once again pass the ball back into the other grid.

Coaching points

To keep possession the players should pass the ball quickly.

Switching areas as often as possible to make the floating defender run as much as possible.

Count how many times the ball moves from one grid to the other.

The 2 defenders can only defend inside their allocated grid.

Swap the defenders after the defenders gain possession the 3rd time.

The last team of three to lose the ball becomes the next defending team.
