Hockey Drill Demonstration

Description

- preferable for players to receive ball on the open stick side

- situations when used - if unable to get their feet around to receive ball on strong side

upright, or flat = to the floor (either 1 or 2 handed)

- after receiving ball on reverse, aim to get into an open stick ball carrying position asap, use reverse stick to pull ball across body & to open stick side

- pairs practice passing, receiving non-stick side, across to open-stick side then return & swap

- alternative: increase/decrease area, add defender, from the side

Coaching points

- player accelerates towards ball carrier & turns to right as ball is released

- sideways (right foot as back foot)

- move on balls of feet enables a quick change of direction

- receive ball from just behind left foot whilst moving

- then pull ball across body from left to right

- stick angled to cushion ball upon impact

- stick upright position (same as when dribbling)

- move ball to open stick side asap to increase control
