First stick and ball session!

In this session we set the tempo for the rest of the hockey season by getting your players to once again pick up sticks, starting with some simple drills to reintroduce them to ball control, passing and moving with the ball.

Hopefully your team has already been working on their fitness, individually and as a team. However little can be done to prepare the body for the bending and moving motions of a hockey match.

What's in the Session?

To get your players used to bending and moving again this session has been designed to gently switch your players hockey-minds back on - testing their dribbling and passing ability through a series of pair and team drills, increasingly getting your players to make the run to meet the ball and then move to offer another passing option!

Sportplan editorHi, I'm Bram, the founder of Sportplan and editor for Sportplan Hockey,

I hope you liked the free plan above - it's a plan a lot of other coaches have used this week.

If you become a full member of Sportplan hockey I'll send you two plans like this every week and you can start a 5 week trial for just £1 today!

Why two plans?

Well because every team is different. Once you've watched the plans you can then take these ideas to training with you - either by printing or downloading them to the new free Sportplan app.

I'm so sure if you try Sportplan you'll love us that I'm offering you the chance to take out a five week trial. That's five weeks full access, with two new plans each week (normally these plans retail at more than the cost of the trial - so from the word go you're winning).
