To give you a hand with getting your players up to speed with their fitness, this session has been written by a Professional Personal Trainer specifically for preparing your players for the season ahead.
Have the Best Season Ever!
Now is the time to start building a base of aerobic stamina before you move onto lactic and speed training for hockey.
Start the season ahead of the opposition.
Use this training plan before your first game of the season and coach with confidence - working on possession plus the give and go
Change your players' running pattern to get them tying the opposition's defence in knots - perfect session to work on your team's attacks!
As the season beckons, make sure you?re fully aware of your strongest XI by putting them through their paces with numerous tests to really see who you are getting the most from.
Rolling out on your backhand side can be a risky play, exposing the ball more to the defender. However being able to effectively utilise it in games will develop you attacks, keeping them unpredictable and open up areas of the pitch you may not have discovered before.
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.
"It is not only useful for staff who are experienced but a valuable tool for those subject staff who have to take teams."
The variety of sessions across sports - sometimes we steal session ideas from one sport and use them with another.
As we enter the business end of the competition, we take a look at the remaining eight teams and the key talking points surrounding each side.
Give it a try - it's better in the app
