Conditioning in combination with stick and Ball
  • A: sprint from 1 to 2
  • B: perform rope ladder as per 5 exercises below
  • C: take ball around the hat and finish on goal
Note: if no rope ladders available then hats down

Points of attention:
  • Pay attention to your predecessor.
  • Outside back.
  • Exercise must be done at pace.
  • two foot run -one foot in each box.
  • Ladder Taps -right foot in each square, left foot outside.
  • Two foot lateral run -sideways both feet in a box.
  • Skiers.
  • Squat Hops.
drawing Conditional rope ladders
  • Make 2 equal teams.
  • Each team gets an attacking goal.
  • Rights to score can be fetched in 1 of the 2 boxes.
  • On offense or ball loss, rights must be retrieved again.
drawing Warm-up ball possession high tempo
  • Focused pass giving and receiving.
  • Center player focus on accepting, handling ball and passing on.
Points of focus:
  • In the forehand
  • High stop
  • Speed ball -width of field serve.
Extension exercise: middle player runs in and asks for the ball, accepts and turns around, passes the ball runs back quickly and offers again.
drawing Passing in 3-pairs
Divide your group into 2 teams.

  • Red player in center plays defender in and gets ball back. 2 - 1 hockey out in the 'forbidden' zone.
  • Right blue player starts with ball and plays defender in, plays back to blue and a 3 - 3 starts in the 'forbidden' zone and right field.
  • Defenders may score in the goal if the ball is intercepted.
  • After this attack, an attack starts from the left.
  • Player red plays into the defender, plays back and a 4-4 in the whole 23 meter area starts.
  • Defenders can defend by scoring in one of the goals.
On offense -with advantage- or off-ball, pass immediately to next attack.

Add extra: Scoring within 10/15 sec. Start when the attacker receives the ball back from the defender.

drawing Switching 2-1, 3-3 to 4-4.
  • Party game with two goals and a square in the middle of the field.
  • The ball may not be played through the square. In that case the ball is in touch.
  • So the idea is to play field hockey outside and not through the axis of the field.

Relay 4
  • Players blue and red start at the same time with the ball
  • Slalom around the 5 pawns --> cross --> around the green pawn and finish on goal.
  • If you score, you may immediately choose the shortest path to tap your next teammate.
  • If you miss; wide, post or the ball does not reach the goal, you make a detour via the red or blue pawn/triangle.
    • Players blue run back via the blue pawn and players red via the red.
  • When you have been, you sit on the ground.
  • The team that has all players on the ground first wins the relay.
  • Depending on the number of players, you may choose to have all players take their turn twice.
  • Switch sides halfway through the exercise.
