on the reverse stick side running into space
The player without the ball (player 2) runs towards the opposite cone and communicates to their partner that they are ready to receive the ball.
After making the straight pass player 1 runs to the opposite cone to receive a square pass from player 2.
Player 2 must adjust their body and footwork in order to receive the ball.
Passing & Receiving
Set out lines of cones in two different colours.
One player always along the red line and the other always along the blue cones.
Players pass the ball to the other player every time they reach a cone, culminating in a switching of sides and changing of passing order when they reach the final cone.
Movement off the ball
Moving back and forth between two cones players make straight and diagonal passes to each other while moving.
Passing & Receiving
The player with the ball passes the ball square to the other attacking player. Upon receiving the ball player 2 runs laterally across the defender, staying just out of reach. In the meantime player 1 has to run diagonally into the space behind the defender.
Player 2 has two options they can pass the ball into the space behind the defender for player 1 to run onto or player 2 can keep the ball and continue to run past the defender.
Player 2 can pass at any time and must run to be available for the return pass from player 1.
Scoring on the break
To teach players to stick stop this practice is a good warm up to taech them how to absorb the ball and show them the importance of the left hand in the strick stop The players should get in pairs and roll the ball at each other for thepartner to stop the ball with the hand and roll the ball slightly forward.
- Showing the 'hockey position' (also called the 'playing position') - This is how players should be carrying the ball
Right hand on the stick. This picture is uploaded by a sportplan member to share with the world we have left this to show you as an example we look for more pictures from you, the members, in the future.
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.
Player on the left starts with the ball by running across the square the second player runs across behind the player with the ball when the cross the player with the ball passes the ball under the arm to the runner who then takes over the running with the ball. They then start again on the next cone and reverse the roles.
Player attack the first line of cones at pace and perform an open stick drag before then running at the second line of cones and repeating the skill. After performing the second drag players finish with a reverse stick shot on goal.
Starting on the halfway line, player A dribbles towards the 'defender' (the first line of cones). Player A must use the pull-back and pass diagonally to Player B. Player B receives the pass, arcs around the cones and passes diagonally to Player C. Player C receives the pass, arcs around the cones and passes back to Player D on the halfway line. Continue the pass and move in this way until players have returned to their starting positions.
This is a great practice for players to practice passin and receiving on the move. Set out 2 lines or cones about 5 meters apart in both directions. about 10 cones in total. one Player starts with the ball at the starting cone and has to pass the ball to the other player through the 1st horizontal channel of cones the the other player receives the bal;l and passes the ball back thtough the next channel, all the way this continues untill the last pass is received and the ball can be taken into the circle and shot at goal.
- The ball cannot go over the backboard on the initial strike of a short corner - Should be aware of players running in on posts.Â
HITTING TECHNIQUE It is difficult to define the ÃÂcorrectÃÂ technique; if a player is quick and highly successful, a teacher should question whether to change a playerÃÂs style. However, it is recognized that only the flat, German style hit is effective on a water-based pitch, as other techniques tend to make the ball rise. It is highly desirable to teach the following:
Player runs with the ball the side and has to pass the ball to a player on the right. The player receiving has to receive the ball to the opposite side to which the defender runs round.
A player starts to run towards the 23 metre line (a). The running player has to call for one of the other players to pass the ball (b), on receiving the ball the player runs into the circle and shoots. The next player to run is the player that passed the ball (c). Progression: Put a player at the top of the circle with whom the players can play a wall pass, or this player can act as a defender.
