Hockey drills for

  • The player does three passes behind the dummy and rounds on target.
  • You can also do this exercise in relay form (do emphasize the proper execution of the exercise and not the speed).
Points of attention:
  • With the dummy, it is important that you pretend to pass to the left, but eventually accelerate right around the pawn.
  • Make sure you step out well with your left foot and pass the ball well under you.
  • After your move, accelerate briefly to the next double pawn.
  • All but one player have a ball.
  • The player without ball is the defender and tries to work all the balls out of the square as quickly as possible.
  • The players with ball drift through the square and try to keep the ball there as long as possible.
  • If the player loses his ball and the defender plays the ball outside the square, the player is finished.
  • In that case, he helps the defender to work all the balls out of the square as quickly as possible.
  • The player who remains last with ball wins the game.
Points of Attention:
  • Emphasize that the players look well over the ball while drifting (head up).
  • If a foul is made by the player with ball, he is out. If the defender fouls, it is a free ball for the attacker.
1 vs. 1
  • Attacker blue plays the ball with a push pass to defender red.
  • Defender red accepts the ball and plays the ball with push pass back to attacker blue.
  • Attacker blue takes the ball and plays a 1 vs. 1 with the blue defender in the square.
  • Does the attacker win the duel he may score freely. The defender does not have to pass if the 1 vs 1 is lost in the square.
  • If the defender takes the ball away, he makes sure the ball is played through the orange gate.
  • The attack is finished when the attacker has shot at goal or the defender has played the ball through the orange gate.
Points of attention:
  • Focus is both on defending -poking, sitting low, not stepping in- and attacking -tempoing, direction changes, etc.
  • Depending on the number of players, the exercise can be plotted twice.
  • Make two rows of an equal number of players.
