  • Exercise B+C
  • B is about the left
  • C is over the right
  • A1 dribbles with ball to A2
  • B guides player A, at 1,5 meter, backwards (open position).
  • This is about footwork, so when A arrives at A2 he just lets A strike at goal.
  • After the hit, A leaves the circle. B turns around and gets a ball from C. B takes a closed approach, turns open and plays the ball.
  • B takes a closed approach, turns open and rounds the goal.
  • Then the exercise starts on the right.

  • A runs in and offers himself to the 2 pawns.
  • B passes to A.
  • A takes a closed pass and turns away strongly and accelerates using his forehand.

    • herring trick
    • to a walk you can set out.

Do you want to get in shape? You can, but you need a few things for it.

  • What do you need?
    • Pawns
    • Soccer
    • Clothes you can work out in
    • Stairs
  • First of all, it's important that you warm up well before you start working on your fitness!
  • What do you need to do?
    • Run 2 cones to the front 1 to the back and repeat this every time.
      • Do that twice
    • Take the ball and run with it in 5 circles.
      • This will give you ball control and also ensure that you have worked on your fitness for a while.
    • You can also do exercises for your condition inside by running 5 times up and down the stairs.
  • Of course you can give your own twist to how you want to do it, but I find these are the nicest and most fun ways to improve.
  • Don't try to run fast the first day without stopping, do it in steps!
  • 4v3 situation where trainer indicates to whom the ball should be played (left, right or centre) over two sides.

Situation on the left:

  • Player plays into a teammate (red dots)
  • Trainer calls left, right or central (variant white, red, blue)
  • Depending on the trainer's instructions, L, R or C is played in;
  • After this there is a 4:3 (white attacks and rose defends).
  • After playing the ball red is allowed to defend immediately.

1 v 1

  • Make a square from 5m-5m and play a 1v1. the defender is only allowed to defend with his body so no stick.
  • Focus on defence.
  • Use your body to force them to go to your strong side.
  • When you push them to the side make a block tackle.
  • Block tackle is always on the forehand, 2 hands on the stick and step forward.
  • Stick is on the ground.
  • Jab:
  • Make a small square 1m-1m.
  • The defender is inside the square and the attacker tries to get the ball inside the square.
  • The defender use the jab to defend his square.
  • You jab with your stick to the ball.
  • Left foot in front and right food in the back (not flat fooded).
  • Use your stick as poke.
  • Putting down pawns.
  • Make several situations, this depends on the amount of players you have.
  • Dribble around the cones, at the last cone pass the ball back to the waiting team-mate, the team-mate also starts the slalom dribble again.
  • Same as above, but now after the slalom score in the goal ( between two cones ), you take the ball out of the goal again yourself.
  • Variation:
    • Instead of shooting into the goal, give a cross after the last pawn to the person who is waiting at the pawn in front of the goal,
    • This person shoots it into the goal and takes the ball back.
    • The person who has passed stands on the spot in front of the goal to receive the ball.
