Hockey drills for attack / offense

Ad

  • Attack through the middle which starts with a 2:1
  • B is a deep man starting in the circle. A starts with the ball and wants to finish with B on goal.
  • C wants to slow the game down and close the pass lines to give D time to come to his aid.

  • Goal of attackers:
    • Pass the ball over the backhand side of the opponent
    • Pass to teammate on the forehand
    • Making eye contact with your team-mate
    • Make speed
  • Defender's goal
    • Drive your opponent towards your forehand (your backhand side must be closed)
    • Guiding your opponent
    • Slowing down the game to give D time to come and help you
    • When D has arrived, one goes on the deep man and the other effectively pressures the opponent and waits to take the ball away until the opponent makes the mistake

A game form where for switching is tested.
  • You make two teams, if you score at one goal you may take the ball right out and go score at the other side.
  • This means that both teams have to switch because they are now coming towards the other goal.

Practicing putting down a bowl and playing in a header.
  • Ball starts on the sideline and there is no space in front so the ball must be returned!
  • How do you stand in a bowl?
    • We play in a 4 man bowl and stand as shown in the picture below.
  • What is the task of the people in the bowl?
    • The left back receives first the ball from the midfielder who takes it out because there is no space in front.
    • It is the job of the left back to have already looked beforehand at where there is space and where I can go with the ball
    • Then you have the left center man in the bowl, who takes some steps back so he can receive the ball from the left back in a safe place, and must also have looked beforehand at the state of play and where I can go with the ball when I am going to get it
    • The right center man in the bowl must have an overview of the game and makes sure she can play for the other center man or even for the left back if there is room for it.
    • The right back can go up or down a bit, he must see the play of the opponent and be able to react to it.
    • If there is high pressure, he should drop back a little to be playable by the back men in the bowl.
    • If they are applying less pressure, he can stand a bit higher to keep the field long and wide and play forward.
  • How are we going to build up forward what is the job of the midfielders?
    • The task of the midfielders is to pass from inside to outside, run towards the ball and if they do not get the ball, run away again to create space for your team-mates
  • The other team is going to put pressure on the players who are playing in the bowl and experiment with this

  • You have them play a 3:2.
  • Red wants to go score on goal and blue wants to go intercept the ball and defend out.
  • If the drill is running you can later add in the extra blue defender. This one is going to run a tackle back. He can start running when the first ball is played
  • Instructions which you can give to the attackers
  • Always return the ball, create and maintain speed in your attack, one person creates depth so you keep the field long, pass the ball into the forehand of your teammate,
  • Pass the ball over the opponent's backhand side.

  • Questions you can ask the attackers
    • What is the goal of the exercise?
    • How can you reach the goal and what do you have to do for it?
    • What is the task of which player at which pawn?
    • Which pass technique is best to use?
  • Instructions you can give to the defenders
    • Slow down your opponent by pushing them outside, do not take the ball away straightaway but wait for the opponent's mistake, the shaft should always be closed
  • Questions to ask the defenders
    • What is the purpose of this exercise for you?
    • How can you achieve the goal and what do you need to do to achieve it?
    • What is the most important task you have within this exercise?

Game with the three teams,

  • Make three equal and fair teams.
  • One team starts as the defenders (on the picture the red)
  • One team starts as the attackers (on the picture the blue)
  • One team behind the 23 meter line (on the picture the white)
  • For the defenders, the idea is to pass the ball to one of the white ones standing in the box near the 23 meter line
  • For the attackers, the idea is that they will score. If they have scored they get 1 point
  • For the team behind the 23 meter line, the idea is that they accept the ball when the defenders pass it to them.
  • When the ball is with the team behind the 23 meter line they attack
  • The team that was attacking defends and the team that was defending moves into the box behind the 23 meter line.
  • This keeps on turning. The one who gives the most points at the end wins.

  • Tips for the attackers
    • Pass to the free man when in possession of the ball and make sure that someone runs in deep
    • Pass over the backhand side of your opponent
    • When not in possession of the ball, close the lines to the people in the box behind the 23-metre line
  • Tips for the defenders
    • Make sure you defend outside the circle so that they cannot strike
    • Keep up with your own man
    • Close the backhand side so they cannot pass over it
    • If you do have the ball, find the space and keep passing until there is a gap and you can pass to the people in the box

  • An extension of the exercise of attacking on the right among defenders.
  • The aim of the exercise is for the 3 attackers to get past the two defenders in an effective manner.
  • Let them do it again a number of times.
  • Then repeat the exercise they did before.
  • This is exactly what they should do, only now there are defenders present and they have to look even more closely and hit the safe pass.

  • A and B want to score on the goal together
  • A passes the ball first back to B.
  • When A has played the ball, the tackle back runner may start running back and it is a 2 on 2.
  • When the defenders capture the ball they may score in the little goal on the right.
  • Tips for the attackers
    • Create speed + maintain speed
    • Look at the position of the team-mate to see how you should line up
