Hockey drill: party inside the dotted line
Party inside the dotted line
:As an attack is to get the most out of your attackAs a
defense is to defend smartly.
- The field is up to the dotted line.
- The attackers take the ball from somewhere on the dotted line and must try to score.
- The defenders must try to defend the ball from the outside.
- The attackers score 3 points when they score; 2 points when they force a corner and 1 point when they have a good scoring chance.
- The defenders get 3 points when they defend the ball by playing in between the pawns; 2 points when they get a free hit and 1 point when they manage to play the ball over the touchline.
NB When defenders score, the ball does not have to be run between the pawns or accepted behind the pawns.
- Adjust the size of those teams according to the amount of players available. You can also have one team on the sidelines and play a 2 to 3 minute game each time. That way there is a break and the players have time to discuss and analyse.
- The scoring pawns for the defenders can also be made smaller.
- You can play with a 'chameleon' and thus give the attackers an overtal when scoring is not going well.
Points of attention:
- Make sure it is clear who is picking up which man.
- As defenders, try to keep a low profile and prevent fouls.
- As the attackers, try to actively look for a foot.
- Look for opportunities to double-team When you, as the defender, realise that your man is not being active enough in the attack, help your buddy defend and push the attacker into a corner
- As the attacker, look for the backhand of your opponent. A right-wing attack is therefore often easier to execute than the other way around
