Hockey: Standard Straight Strike

I love using Sportplan. It's been a great help for co-ordinating hockey...
Laura, Hockey Coach

DESCRIPTION

Players line up as shown in the diagram. The ball is pushed out for the stopper to stop at the top of the circle, before moving the ball in for the striker to hit the ball at the goal.

COACHING POINTS

  • Important for the ball to be pushed out quickly.
  • The stop should be done using the reverse stick and then the ball moved into the circle for the strike.
  • Striker should start their run as the ball is on its way out to the stopper.
  • The ball should be struck as soon as it enters the circle.
