Unable to score when in the opponent's circle!?

Unable to score when in the opponent's circle!?

We are always the better team on the hockey field. 90% in the opponents circle, but we are unable to score. At practice I see the most amazing goals, lifts, drag flicks...

In training have 2 teams playing in the D only, e.g. 3-5 players per team.

1 goalie.

Each team must pass the ball 3 times before shooting. Team without possession is defending - once defending team win the ball, then they immediately become attackers and need to pass the ball three times before shooting.

Start the game with all players standing on the edge of the D facing away and randomly put the ball in the D - game starts when you say it or blow your whistle.

oefen om dit simple te hou, 2v1 met keepers in die box of selfs net om short corners te kry! jy sal sien hoe vinnig pas hulle aan en raak goal honger! 

Practice and keep it simple with some 2v1s with keepers in the box or even just short corners! You will see how quickly they adapt and become goal hungry!
