Hockey drills for attack / offense

  • 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 
  • 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 exercise is meant to simulate a game.
  • It is therefore intended that one team consists of the defenders/defending midfielders and the other team consists of the attackers.
  • The attackers can score in the normal goal (decide if they can hit high as in the game).
  • The defending side can score by driving the ball.
  • Over the line of the goals on the half way line.   
  • The attackers learn to play over and finish at goal and the defending side learns to defend to the outside.  


  • Two teams with subs, there's a change if there's a score.
  • Each person defends a goal, there are five goals on each field, so there are also five people defending these goals.
  • If a goal is scored in your goal, you have to sit on the side and switch.
  • A new player (sub) enters the field from the side and defends the goal.
  • If there's a goal, it's a point.
  • The team with the most points at the end of the match is the winner.
  • A passes deep to B, B goes around behind pilons and gives the ball to A in front, A scores on goal;
  • B goes back to position, offers himself and gets the ball from C. CB play a 2v1 against A;
  • A enters the ball at D gets ball and plays (D, E and A) a 3v2 against CB.

open and closed receptions

  • Then number two calls "open" or "closed" and plays the ball to number three.
  • Number three enters the ball and takes it on according to what was called again.
