Hockey: Drawing the defender to create scoring opportunity

I really appreciate the Hockey Coaching on Sportplan. The senior girls...

DESCRIPTION

Player 2(left wing) receives ball from the Player 1 (left midfield) and takes the ball into the zone, where the defender can try and win the ball. Just before player 2 loses the ball, he/she turns away from the RD and passes the ball to player 1. It is important that this player stays outside the 23m area and straight behind player 2. When player 1 receives the ball, he/she plays the ball to player 3, who runs towards the circle and uses player 4 + 5 to try and score a goal.
Every player then follows their own pass and next ball(player 3 to 4 to 5).

COACHING POINTS

  • It is important that the defender on the first player with the ball, does not spoil the practice by anticipating the back pass and intercepting the ball. If this was to happen the player on the ball should continue the run and enter the circle and pass to one of the players in the circle.
