Hockey Scoring on the break Drills

Scoring on the break is a very common form of attack in field hockey, if you watch the Australians you may believe it is the only form of attack.

It often starts when the defending have intercepted the ball from the the opposition, and through passing (outletting) the ball to midfield and attacking players, your players enters the opposition's shooting circle and scores a goal. As well as quick passing, this category also includes drills to teach attackers to press and force the mistake.

These goal scoring drills and videos will have your team working together in small groups to practise fast and effective passing and movement off the ball. This will ensure your players are prepared on match day to regain possession and quickly break to take advantage of the other team being out of position to create better scoring opportunities.
