Hockey Drill Demonstration
There should be approximately 4 players on each of the 3 stations in this drill.
The player at the top of the pitch (player 2) starts with the ball and passes player 1 on the wing. Player 1 should run in field to meet the pass.
Player 1 then lifts the ball over the stick and runs with the ball to the 3 cones, performs a reverse stick drag and then progresses down the field to the 3rd cone.
In the mean time players 2 and 3 have both made a run into the D to receive the ball back from player 1 and score a goal.
The wing player can choose which player they want to pass the ball to from the wing.
The things that the coach should be looking for to classify the players are the accuracy and pace of each skill element.
Your most skilled players will show good accuracy and pace
