Hockey Drill Demonstration


Two strikers start in the D and have to lead into the right position. As the attacker with the ball carries the ball into the D on the base line, one attacker should be leading into the far post area and the other one should lead to receive the ball off the ball carrier  in a 90 degree angle (1). The attacker receives the ball square (2) and then has the option to either go for a direct shot or pass to the attackter on the post (3).

Coaching points

Leading: it's important for the strikers to lead with a change of direction and change in pace, so that they can get rid off and/or in front of their defenders when receiving the ball. 

Timing: the leads should be timed perfectly, as soon as the ball carrier looks up the other two attackers should be in front of their defenders.
