Hockey Drill Demonstration
With 11 v 11 in half a pitch this game should:
- Cramp Players for time
- Encourage pre-scanning and quick play
- Constant High Intensit
Ideally teams should organise and come up with formations, tactics etc. this makes the session at a match pace intensity as well as units (attack, midfield and defence) working together.
- Touches or Time Restraints
Rather than having a limited number of touches a coach determins if the players has used their time and space economically or correctly relitive to their situation.
For Example - If a player has a defender behind him then he should pass the ball quickly rather than turn and dribble or if a winger is in lots of space then allow them to drive baseline and cross the ball.
- Possession Game or Goals
A coach shouts out 'Possession' or 'Goals' changing hte game from being a possession game to normal hockey (attacking goals).
- Goals on the Wings
Place cones as goals in the corners of the pitch and change the objective to work on changing the point of attack
- Central Goals
