Hockey: Move left to deep drag / change direction to accelerate left

I really appreciate the Hockey Coaching on Sportplan. The senior girls...
Petra

DESCRIPTION

Coach's objective :

To teach the drag from left to right prior to changing direction and accelerating away on the left side.

Purpose :

To exploit space on an opponent's open stick as a result of the defender denying the ball carrier the opportunity to drive to the right.

Structure :

Players work on their own.

COACHING POINTS

  • Open the body to the right by moving the right foot (in the direction of the large curved arrow)
