Hockey drills for all skills

  • The group is divided into 2 groups ( try boys who have to play together in the game across the board (far-mid or all defenders; all midfielders,...))

Playing field : 1/4 of the field over the entire width of the field.

  • Exercise : The toss determines which team has ball possession.
  • This group tries to visit all the houses on the playing field, after each visit the group has to get a key from the goalkeeper who is standing in a box in the middle of the field.
  • You get the key by playing the goalkeeper and he has to kick the ball back to a member of the group.
  • The house has to be approached by at least 3 people.
  • Then a group member may stand in the house and receive the ball and play it back.
  • The team may NOT have someone in the house in advance. 
  • Everything goes on time.
  • After group 1, group 2 starts. 
  • Group 2 has to improve the time of group 1...
  • The second version is with defense by the other group. 
  • Who scores the most houses in 10 minutes. 
  • Scoop is allowed in free space... houses may not be defended by a team...  A house = a square with 4 pilons...

  1. defender 1 passes to attacker 1
  2. attacker 1 to attacker 2
  3. through pass from attacker 2 to attacker 1
  4. defender 1 defends on attacker 1 when he has received the through pass
  5. attacker 2 attacks > 2v1



The flower (without or with ball):

  • start at pilon 1 > to the center of the flower
  • hitting each of the 4 surrounding pilons 1 by 1
  • run back to pilon 1
  • variations:
    • with stick and ball
    • relay race


  • Set up a small field.
  • Let the children choose fruits of their choice
  • Call off those fruits, than the ones that were called out, do a 1v1 
  • Dribble:
    • indian dribble: make touches from FH/BH if you have control increase the speed
    • dummy: drag the ball to your left foot make a c pull without the ball, drag the ball with your backhand to your righthand-side and speed up
    • 3d skill: 
      • . 
    • it all starts with lifting the ball in the air while simultaneously making a move to change direction 
  • Push: In the circle and close to the goal
  • slap: for a deflection or from 2 meters inside the circle
  • deflection: 
  • hit: top of the circle FH/BH 
  • FH:
  • BH: 

  • The group is positioned in the four corners of the field.
  • One who tags has to wear a party ribbon
  • On a sign, they cross the field in three directions of their choice:
  • the short side, the long side or diagonal.
  • This results in one, two or three points each time they return.
  • A tagger operates in the free space and obliges the tagged children to first go back to their corner before they may cross again.
  • How many points can you score in a set time?
  • The group is lined up on the short side of the field for a relay. 
  • On a sign they all run to the other side at the same time and try to sit down as soon as possible in a random order.
  • Which line-up will be the first to sit down?
  • Variation
  • Varying start and end positions.
  • Touching a line on the opposite side, returning and sitting in line again.
  • This is a good exercise for conditioning: 
  • The group has to stand in a row and you let them start dribbling. 
  • As soon as the trainer blows his whistle, the last one of the row should run forwards. 
  • You do this until everyone has been there and then you let them finish running the track.
