How can I improve my stick and ball skills at home?

At home, inside my small basement, I don't have a huge space to practice field hockey. I have cones, an equipment ladder (for agility), and a rebounding board. I have basically been practicing dribbling, passing against the rebounding board, and dodging "defenders" (cones). After a little while, I run out of creativity for drills, and I feel that I may not be getting the most out of practicing. Do you have any drills that will improve my ball skills greatly that are okay for one person?

Hi Emma,


Here's a great drill to start with! Head over the Hockey drills section and select 'video techniques' for tonnes of drills on ball control. All of which are easy to set up and require minimal equipment, perfect for training at home!

Description:

- The goal is to move the ball towards then cone, then cut it back quickly. This attempts to make a defender into making a challenge, allowing the attacker to move around a static player


Coaching Points:

- Attacker should try to keep their head up whenever possible

- Forward should use quick feet so they become comfortable changing direction quickly when under pressure
