Hockey Drill Demonstration

Description

Players line up as shown in the diagram. The ball is pushed out to the stopper at the top of the circle. The ball is stopped and the striker moves in to pick the ball up off the stoppers stick and then passes the ball to the right to blue 6. They stun (stop) the ball for blue 4 to come in and strike the ball at goal.

Coaching points

  • Try to delay the pass to the right as long as possible to make more time for the player that strikes the ball.
  • Blue 6 must try and stun the ball i.e. take the pace off the ball.
  • Blue 4 must only move on Blue 6s movement and wait for the ball.
  • Average rating
