Hockey Drill Demonstration


Half (white cone) has been beaten on the line bringing the high sweeper out of position. 

Sweeper (white cone) needs to shadow/channel attacker to make the pass or out over either line

Half should drop back behind sweeper to offer support and cut out corner circle pass (space)

Rest of defending players (white cones) mark players accordingly.

Coaching points

Ensure half doesn't just run straight behind sweeper, needs to cover empty space and be a support! 

Sweeper needs to be calm and slow attacker down rather than dive into tackle.
