Hockey Drill Demonstration

Description

Players set up as shown in the diagram. The ball is pushed out to the stopper at the top of the circle. The main striker (Blue 3) runs over the top of the ball giving the impression they are going to strike the ball. The stopper moves the ball to the left for a strike (Blue 5).

Players 1 and 6 move in to pick up any rebounds with player 4 staying slightly deeper.

Coaching points

  • Make sure that the striker on the left gets in a good initial body position to allow a strike at goal.
  • The transfer from the stopper must not be too fast.
