Drag Flick Technique:
At the beginning of the move, the ball should rest at the bottom of the stick. The stick will be angled slightly backward, while they lower their body and drag the ball along the shaft of the stick until it reaches the highest point. Now, as the ball rolls all the way down along the shaft, make the angle of the stick even further backward to enable the ball to rise on to the stick. This will aid in the flick. Once the ball is on the stick and properly balanced long enough, flick the ball towards the goal in the follow-through.
Concentrate on mastering the drag, the follow-through and also the ball movement along the stick. Teach each part of the drag flick individually, practicing them separately and combining them together. One can divide it the upper body and lower body movements and practice them separately.
Position the players perpendicular to the goal, but be flexible with the hips and body, which will move as they manoeuvre the technique. Their feet should be perpendicular to the goal at all times. It is important to practice body movement first, so start with their back to the goal and then turn the body to a perpendicular position. Finally, end the move by facing the target completely.
