"A skill is only a skill once it can be performed under pressure". The session creates game-specific situations to put emphasis on the quality of your players clip hit when under pressure. Scenarios including possession-based games and goalscoring in tight areas will require players to focus intently on the technique of the clip hit to perform the skill effectively.
When do we use the clip hit?
The clip hit is a quicker hit than the full drive and is often used for speedy shots and quick passes when it is not practical to push, sweep or hit the ball.
The clip hit comes in very handy as the backswing is shorter that a hit, instead more similar to a push but propels the ball a lot faster and over a greater distance, therefore arming players with a greater range of passing and shooting.
Build the whole of your game upon having a rock solid defence. Work on defending 1-on-1 as well as a team unit, starting from the front. This session develops the whole teams reaction to losing the ball and working hard to win it back as soon as possible.
