Receiving the Ball from the Side

I love using Sportplan. It's been a great help for co-ordinating hockey...
Laura, Hockey Coach

DESCRIPTION

- player may receive ball from left hand side whilst being sideways onto passer

- situation - if players travel in same attacking direction & pass ball between them

COACHING POINTS

- focus on ball whilst receiving to ensure contact is made

- sideways

- weight transfer front foot (left) to back foot (right)

- if receiving from left & wish to move/pass to right, cushion ball as it travels across body until its on the strong side

- player must have pre-scanned before receiving to enable them to adjust body positioning correctly

- keep stick in contact with ball & cushion as it crosses body - allows more control

- move towards ball, dont wait for it
