Hockey Drill Demonstration

Description

- groups of 4 - pushing ball over small distance (few metres)

- each player starts at red cone then runs to blue cone to receive the ball from the previous player

- move ball around blue cone & pass to next player

- players pass ball around square, each running to front (blue) cone

- start receiving from left side (anti-clockwise) then change to right side (clockwise)

Alternative: no cones; change direction; reverse stick side (Flat 1 or 2 handed)

Coaching points

- 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
