Indoor Hockey Training Program

The focus of the 8 week hockey programme is to develop a man2man defense system, which aims to force the opposition onto forehand and the right boards. The aim in offence is to develop a simple, mostly anti-clockwise, rotation of the 3 forwards and a team focus of trying to play down the backhand of the opposition.

Depending on the skill level of the training group there may be a need to add a preparatory week at the beginning making it a 9 week plan in total. This preparatory week is to be used to learn the various different skills and rules in indoor hockey.

These skills and exercises are great for all players basics so even if your team is playing indoors or not, give them a try. Even if your not in an indoor league, these new drills are great for a team practicing indoors during the winter months.

Indoor Hockey Training Program - in this pack:

Session 2: Playing using the Boards - 2 vs 1

This session is designed to cover the various options of exploring the 2 vs 1 down the left board as well as the important skill of taking penalty corners.


Session 3: Playing down the right board

To go through the options available to your players when they're attacking down the right boards.


Session 4: Playing down the Left Board

Session 5: Rotations for Forwards

Get your players to run and rotate to irritate and lose the opposition's defenders.


Session 6: Combinations

Passing and Moving combinations can be hard to stop. Get your players moving dynamically - always in the direction of the opposition's goal.


Session 7: Fast Plays

Hockey is a fast paced game so it stands to reason that your players should aim to play as fast as possible to try and get the upper hand.


Session 8: Overload and Overcome

Creating overloads is a great way for your players to get past the opposition - by creating two options (go alone or use the support) the defender has doubt planted in their mind - they can't block both routes - and so the chance to progress is always on.


Session 9: Defend and Press

To work on your team's defence - teaching them to force the opposition's forwards wide and then how to counter-attack quickly and effectively to catch the other side on the back foot.


Session 10: Formations for the indoor 5 player game
