Hockey drills for all skills

Ad
  • Players divided into two groups on one side of the field.
  • Two rows of cones next to each other.
  • Players pass the ball back and forth while walking past the cones.
  • Variations
    • Individuals keep ball high along a row of cones, both groups independent of each other.
    • Passing the ball two by two
    • Individually dribble two balls at the same time, slalom through the cones
    • Pass the ball and dribble a second ball at the same time (player says yes).
    • Three of you play over 2 balls to the other side.

Goal

  • To practise running through the ball in motion (accepting in the run).


Set up

  • 2 players stand in a line (e.g. sideline)
  • and 1 player stands 10-20 metres away.
  • The first player of the team runs a few metres and then passes the ball to the second player.
  • and passes the ball to the person standing alone.
  • He starts running roughly at the time of the pass.
  • This way, he runs through the ball at the moment he takes over.
  • The person who passed then moves to the 1-ling position
  • The exercise can be made more difficult by lengthening the distance between passes In addition, a passing move can be made before the pass.

Purpose

  • Practicing different techniques. (Also useful to observe how things are going during the 1st training).


Set up

  • All players line up on the baseline (or another line) and do a certain
  • and do a certain exercise until the 23m line (or another line).
  • This can be only floating, or floating + at whistle a drag or lift, etc.
  • Important is that it is not about the fastest, but the best!
  • You can make it easier or more difficult by making a difference in the exercise.

Goal

  • To regain that ball feeling and get back into the swing of things.


Set up

  • The players form pairs
  • and they stand opposite each other on a few meters (5 for example).
  • Then they start pushing each other.
  • At a certain moment, they take some more distance and start flattening.

Goal

  • The goal of this exercise is to learn to look ahead when floating. In addition, you train your ability to react.


Set up

  • The players line up on, for example, the back line.
  • The trainer stands 10-15 metres away from the players.
  • At an agreed signal, the players start drifting towards an imaginary line at your height.
  • But in the meantime, they have to look in front of them, because you raise a certain number of fingers and the players have to say that number.
  • To make this exercise more difficult, you can ask the players to make a passing move on an agreed signal, or you can make the distance bigger, or the players have to walk instead of saying the number, to a point which corresponds with the number.

Play a 2-1 and try to score in the goal.
If the defender captures the ball, he passes it to the next duo.
Alternate the defender.

Ad

There is a square just outside the 23 in the middle.
3 teams between 4 and 6 players.

  • Team A starts attacking from the right, trying to score;
  • Pay attention to scoring positions (guard, spot, 2nd pole);
  • If team A scores, the coach throws in a bonus ball
  • If the ball goes out, it is for team B(defence)
    • Team B's task is to play into team C's position;
    • Team C then moves the ball to the right and starts attacking.
    • Team A then goes to defend


  • A plays the ball to the incoming B
  • B rebounds the ball
  • A drives a little
  • B offers himself wide and A plays the ball into the space to B
  • Because of B's running action outside, C makes space by running inside.
  • B accelerates during his running action with the ball over the back line.
  • C has gone towards the dot
  • B passes, C rounds off (one-touch).

Variation: Exercise 2x.

Ad

Start with a three-run.

  • A floats with the ball, when A is halfway, he pushes the ball out of the run to B.
  • B does the same (to C)
  • etc.
  • Apply differentiation.

Possibly after this warm-up play another game of possession.
