Hockey Drill Demonstration


  • Set up a number of spaces (3mx3m) each, 1 defender per zone
  • Each attacker has a ball
  • Attacker moves into zone through one gate and must exit through a different gate before tackled
  • Move on to zone
  • If defender makes tackle, switches with attacker
  • Each zone navigated = 1point
  • Each time attacker moves through defender square = -1 points for defender

Add up total points scored as attacker minus points given away as defender and work out total

Coaching points

  • Be as safe as possible in possession of ball in zones
  • Not allowed to turn back on defender, remain aggressive in possession
  • High intensity drive for each repetition
  • Defender needs 360 degree awareness to avoid giving easy points
