Hockey Drill Demonstration


A rally with two cones in the middle for players to V-drag around

if the players find this easy progress to dragging in the opposite direction as demonstrated in B. 

again if easy introduce lifts into the V-drag, e.g. dinking the ball into the pitch to lift it or getting under the ball to lift.

Coaching points

Make the V-drag one large movement at least a stick length drag.

commit one way to fool the defenders then a big plant of the foot and explosive drag in the opposite direction

change of pace when accelerating out of the v-drag 

Lifting the ball:

When dinking the ball, get the players to plant their foot and squeeze the ball into the ground with a quick tap, this should allow the ball to bounce back up - ideal for playing the ball over a defenders stick.
