To improve your players' clip hit passing this session contains clear coaching notes to help you cover all aspects of the skill including the grip, body position and stick placement (with accompanying videos you can watch before you take to the field).

"A skill is only a skill once it can be performed under pressure" which is why this session also puts it into the game, getting your players to run at goal and keep possession (using the clip hit of course).

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 only equivalent to the push or sweep but propels the ball a lot faster and over a greater distance than both the aforementioned skills.
