Hockey Drill Demonstration


The aim is for the blue player to put the ball through the 2 red cones

the red player has to stop that from happening by tackling/intercepting the ball 

if the blue player gets the ball through the cones, they swap in with the red player

the red player stays in until beaten by one of the blue players
