Hockey drills for all skills

  • put out a square as shown in the drawing.
  • Make teams of 3 people.
  • There must always be one pilon open.
  • Start with the ball at person 1, person must always have 2 possibilities.
  • If person 1 passes to person 3, person 2 must move one square.
  • This is how the exercise continues.
  • Passing: 
    • push, slap, hit, overhead, running lob
  • Receiving:
    • FH: left hand forward, walk/run into the bal, open- closed control
    • BH: receive with a high backhand run into direction of the ball
  • Note: receive always on the move 
  • Purpose; passing over large distances, while running. Finishing and tackleback.
  • A plays long pass to B, 
  • B drives the ball to the right and plays through to C who shoots at goal. 
  • Once the shot has been completed, the next player on A passes to D
  • and D starts a dribble towards the goal (scoring past penalty spot), 
  • C defends this attack.
  • Rotation: A1BCDA2
  • Defender plays the ball to the right back. 
  • Right half pulls in and right front goes deep. 
  • Defender gives a deep pass on the right front. 
  • Right front turns away and plays the ball back on the midfielder. 
  • Midfielder puts the ball back on the other central defender who comes in. 
  • Pass to left back and then perform the same exercise as over right.
  • 1 plays the ball using the bar to 2

    2 runs in, controls the ball, moves towards the axis of the pitch and plays via the bar to 3

    3 runs in, takes on and plays to the running-through number 2

    2 Takes on and shoots (high) on target

    Same for 4,5,6 if there are enough players for that

    Press and hold 1-2-3-1 (or 1-2-3-4-5-6-1)

  • 3 persons stand at the pilons and try not to let the player in the middle touch the ball. 
  • It is important that the diagonal pass is not made possible. 
  • So the players without the ball have to stand in the corners compared to the player with the ball.


  • Attacker plays to defender, and plays the ball back to the attacker.
  • Then the attacker is allowed to attack towards goal. 
  • At 1, the ball begins and passes to the defender who then passes it to the out-going attacker. 
  • From there it is 2 to 1
  • See number 2, only the players remain and it becomes a 4 against 2.
  • There is one tigger without ball and two players without ball.
  • It is thrown over accurately, whoever has the ball, can be tagged, a player without ball can not be tagged.
  • The ball may be held for a maximum of ten seconds.
  • If the tagger has intercepted a ball, the ball goes out of play.
  • If you are tagged, you go to the side when no. 2 comes to the side, no. 1 goes back into the game
  • Put out a square of 10 by 10 meters. 
  • A player is placed at 3 pilons. 
  • One pilon remains empty. 
  • The player with the ball plays to the pilon without a player. 
  • The player standing diagonally runs to the pilon and receives the ball. And so on. 
  • In this way, the next goal is reached: 
    • a lot of movement, 
    • playing while running
    • take it in motion.
