Hockey Drill Demonstration


One defender dribbles with ball into the area in which two attackers are waiting to tackle for the ball. On winning the ball the two attackers run out of the area to try and score a goal. The defender can run back and try and stop them. When the attack has finished the two previous attackers become the defenders and start the exercise again.

The defender should work hard after the turn over. Any sort of pressure will effect the quality of the forwards shot

Forwards should work as a pair to win the ball back. Communication key
