Sometimes players need to stop and take five. We're not for one second endorsing slacking though, what we're talking about is getting your players to use the pull back to get out of crowded areas and shake off chasing defenders!
Using the pull back gives players more time on the ball, allowing them to take a look around and choose to continue running with the ball or play to a team-mate.
What's in the Session?
To make your players pull back masters we open this session with some speedy dribbling drills, before then focusing on developing the pull back. We then finish things off with a half court game, encouraging both team to play attacking hockey to get them running at the opposition - thus creating opportunities for your players to pull the ball back and use the support.
