Hockey Drill Demonstration


All players have a ball each except for the 2 defenders.

The defending players without a ball can try to take a ball but only from a player moving with the ball.

Every time a defender comes near an attacker if the attacker stops the ball and takes a self pass then the defender is not allowed to take that particular ball for 5 seconds, giving the attacker time to find space.
