Hockey drill: when floating in front of you

Suitable for the following techniques: attack, dribbling, pass around player, 1-5-meter

When floating in front of you


  • The goal of this exercise is to learn to look ahead when floating. In addition, you train your ability to react.

Set up

  • The players line up on, for example, the back line.
  • The trainer stands 10-15 metres away from the players.
  • At an agreed signal, the players start drifting towards an imaginary line at your height.
  • But in the meantime, they have to look in front of them, because you raise a certain number of fingers and the players have to say that number.
  • To make this exercise more difficult, you can ask the players to make a passing move on an agreed signal, or you can make the distance bigger, or the players have to walk instead of saying the number, to a point which corresponds with the number.
