Hockey drills for all skills
- 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.
- 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.
- To practise running through the ball in motion (accepting in the run).
- 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.
- Practicing different techniques. (Also useful to observe how things are going during the 1st training).
- 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.
- To regain that ball feeling and get back into the swing of things.
- 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.
- The goal of this exercise is to learn to look ahead when floating. In addition, you train your ability to react.
- 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.
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.
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)
- Apply differentiation.
Possibly after this warm-up play another game of possession.
