Receiving in Motion

I love using Sportplan. It's been a great help for co-ordinating hockey...
Laura, Hockey Coach

DESCRIPTION

  • Balls are fed from the top cone through the gates (alternating each time) to a leading player
  • The feeder follows pass
  • The leading player recieves in motion and sprints towards the slider
  • The player drags the first slider, returns to sprint and drags the second slider
  • Two touch shot

COACHING POINTS

Skills:

  • Passing through a target
  • Recieving in motion
  • Accelerated dribbling
  • Yard drag (in motion)
  • Shooting

Integration:

  • With lower numbers, one side is sufficient and it is relatively simple to move the set up quickly

Advancement:

  • If you have the space, move the drill right out. This practices fitness (if done at proper intensity), hitting and reinforces the notion of space
  • Replace the obstacle with another, such as a mine field, defender or other challenge specific to your team, their abilities and areas for improvement

Challenges:

  • Laziness! - If fatigued, they may want to walk through, lowering the intensity and diminishing the effectiveness of the drill, the best solution is encouragement and not giving them the chance to slack off
  • Passing through the gate - with younger players, the drill breaks down here, the solution is to stop the game, highlight the error and set challenges with rewards (eg. 10 in a row from the team and the coach does push-ups and 10 missed in a row and the whole team does push-ups)
  • Recieving in motion - if you find them walking up and stopping, either increase the intensity (so they don't have a choice) or move the red cone farther back to ensure they are running in
  • Drags - it is a relatively simple skill but ensure it is being done properly, that is, running at speed and completing the full drag (no stopping or only doing half)
