Coaching points

Forehand Steer

* left hand out= away from body= go to the right

* left hand under right hand= to your belly button = go to the left

 

Basic dribbling position:

- Grip: 2 hands apart, double V grip
- Ball in front of you (right side)
- Stick 45 degrees with ground=
a manawatu river between you and the ball to be able to trick opponents
- Left under arm, wrist and stick are straight.
- left elbow out (and high) from body, right arm also loose
- heads up + ball always on the stick (Why= to be able to do tricks when opponent comes)
