Description: This video is to teach the players about ball position in relation to stance and the direction of the ball
Coaching Points:
  • Ball in line with the feet ball travels at right angles to the stance
  • Ball infront of the line the pass will go left
  • ball behind the line will make the pass go right
  • one other thing that can change the direction and disguse the pass is for the player to bring the wrists through first keeping them ahead of the head of the stick, slicing the ball off the stick.( ball will go further right)
  • This is a good practice to try with this skill

    Description:

    The player with ball has a free hit.

    They should play a self pass before then trying to get the ball to either player.

    The defender has to keep their distance from the free hitter and try to move so that they can intercept the pass. Players on the free hit should disguise the direction of their pass.


    Coaching Points:

    After each free hit the player that received the ball restarts the same exercise.

    Players should remain on their cones.
