Hockey Drill Demonstration


Basic tackling exercise. The coach starts in the middle, demonstrates the 3 basic types of tackle, front and reverse block and jab.

The coach then shouts each type of tackle and the participants mirror them.

Get one of the participants in to the middle to shout and demonstrate to allow yourself the chance to check and correct technique.

Front - Step forward, both hands on the stick, create a barrier
