- An introduction into the V-Drag
- The ball is moved in a 'v' shape motion, from the left foot to the right foot
- A very useful elimination skill
- For less experienced players, have them kick there right leg in an arc. This help them to understand the length the drag needs to be, while also give them a strong base to protect the ball with
- Once the drag has been complete, players should move off at pace
- Use the v-drag to elinimate a passive defender
- Perform the v-drag from the right foot to the left
- Perform a V-drag and then roll strong
- Can perform 2 practices per rotation
- V-drag from left to right at first red cone
- Roll strong at blue (1st run) and yellow (second run) cones
Moving with the ball
- Practicing moving the ball from the right to the left foot and back again
- This a dramatisation to emphasise how the weight of the player should move with the ball
- Excellent for beginners
Set up mini-gates consisting of one cone and three other cones beside one anothe (preferably two different colours).
Players take it in turn to run through the gate and then reverse stick drag the ball behind the line of cones before running to the next gate.
Moving with the ball
- Perform the indian dribble whilst move the body through the cones
- The goal is to move the ball towards then cone, then cut it back quickly. This attempts to make a defender into making a challenge, allowing the attacker to move around a static player
- Performing a continuous stick dink - Practice 3D skills whilst moving in a linear fashion
- Performing the indian dribble on either side of the body while jogging
Defender steps in front of the attacker to intercept a pass Coaching Points Defender is marking over distance (not touch-tight) Defender times his run so he picks up the ball at the correct time Defender picks the ball up on the move Intercepting player keeps moving with the ball after interception to get away from the attacker and into a strong position Progression Make the attacker less passive
- Using the upright reverse stick to intercept a pass
- Leading towards and then away from a pass, receiving the ball on the reverse side
- Leading towards and then away from a pass, receiving the ball on the open side
- Restart at a penalty corner - Very important that the ball goes exactly where desired so the routine can run smoothly
