Hockey drills for all skills


  • 2 opposite each other, bend their knees in the sitting position and come up and kick forward with the left and right leg alternately.



Two pairs sit down and stand up at the same time, with their backs against each other.



  • 2 groups of players stand behind each other,
  • back player lifts leg of player in front of him.
  • the player in front of him goes through the knees with the other leg.


  • 2 pawns face each other,
    • at a random distance (depends on whether you want to push or flatten, for example).
  • Player 1 and 3 stand with pawn A.
  • Player 2 stands at pawn B.
  • 1 plays the ball to player 2,
  • 2 receives the ball.
  • After player 1 passes the ball, he runs after his ball towards pion B.
  • When player 2 has passed again he runs in the direction of pion A.
  • etc. etcde
  • You can play this exercise with minimum 3 players, maximum 5 otherwise the intensity will be very low.

Overplaying to score

  • Two players continuously play the ball over
  • until one of them is so close to the goal
  • that he can score in the goal.

Variation 2-1 situation:

  • Under pressure from the defender, the attackers must now play together and try to score.
  • The defender can score a point by conquering the ball and then dribbling over the dead ball line.
  • This is the short side without a goal.

:As an attack is to get the most out of your attackAs a
defense is to defend smartly.


  • The field is up to the dotted line.
  • The attackers take the ball from somewhere on the dotted line and must try to score.
  • The defenders must try to defend the ball from the outside.
  • The attackers score 3 points when they score; 2 points when they force a corner and 1 point when they have a good scoring chance.
  • The defenders get 3 points when they defend the ball by playing in between the pawns; 2 points when they get a free hit and 1 point when they manage to play the ball over the touchline.
    NB When defenders score, the ball does not have to be run between the pawns or accepted behind the pawns.



  • Adjust the size of those teams according to the amount of players available. You can also have one team on the sidelines and play a 2 to 3 minute game each time. That way there is a break and the players have time to discuss and analyse.
  • The scoring pawns for the defenders can also be made smaller.
  • You can play with a 'chameleon' and thus give the attackers an overtal when scoring is not going well.

Points of attention:

  • Make sure it is clear who is picking up which man.
  • As defenders, try to keep a low profile and prevent fouls.
  • As the attackers, try to actively look for a foot.
  • Look for opportunities to double-team When you, as the defender, realise that your man is not being active enough in the attack, help your buddy defend and push the attacker into a corner
  • As the attacker, look for the backhand of your opponent. A right-wing attack is therefore often easier to execute than the other way around


  • divide the team by 2 and run it.
  • Sit on top and blow the whistle on any fouls called
  • so they get used to it.


  • A slalom exercise
  • watch how the hands are holding the stick
  • where they have the ball
  • And if they use the stick properly when they run through the exercise!
  • If it goes well, you can make a game of it and see if they master this. The team that has been through all the exercises first has won.


  • Two players stand behind each other. Around them 4 pawns in an angle: 3 next to them/2 behind them
  • The ball is passed to the player in front.
  • She runs around the pawn in front, turns left and plays the second player between the pawns.
  • The second player rebounds between the cones.
  • This repeats itself, then the first player finishes on goal.
