Hockey Set Pieces Drills

Set pieces, sometimes referred to as set-plays in hockey, happen when restarting a game after a foul, the taking of a corner, penalty corner or hit in. A set piece can be a great place to launch an attack or score a goal; however, it is equally important your team know how to defend from a set-piece.

The corner and penalty set pieces outlined in the drills and videos below can be practised on the training ground and should be carefully planned to maximise its impact when used in your next game. It will often involve many members of your team, with each player having a specific role to play.
