Hockey drills for attack / offense

  • Player 1 asks the ball in front of the pilons and receives the ball from player 3. 
  • At that moment player 2 grabs a ball and dribbles to the back line.
  • Player 1 runs with his/her ball to the circle and finishes there.
  • Then player 1 runs to the penaltyspot where he/she receives the ball from player 3.
  • The ball is then finished on goal again.
  • It works just like a normal game only now there's a square in the middle.
  • If a shot or other foul is made, or if the ball has been out of bounds, the trainer throws/plays in a new ball from inside the square.
  • The ball does not necessarily go to the same team or at the place where the foul was made.
  • The size of the field depends on the number of players.
  • Player 1 plays the ball to player 2 after which player 1 runs through
  • Player 2 bounces the ball back to Player 1,
  • Player 1 aligns the ball between the pilons (The player is not going to run into the "pilon box".)
  • Player 1 then finishes the ball at goal

You can speed up this exercise by placing the mirrored exercise on the other side, allowing you to play from 2 sides.

  • Balls are at the first pilon. 
  • The player at the first pilon passes the ball to the second pilon,
  • who pushes the ball through the pilons to the third person. 
  • The third person runs in on the ball and runs even further, 
  • then he pushes the ball to person 4 while he's running. 
  • Person 4 runs around the pilons and passes the ball at the top of the circle, 
  • where person 5 has just run up to finish the ball in the goal.


  • Place hoops around the room.
  • 2 teams play against each other.
  • You can score a point by passing over the ball 5 times and then putting the ball into a hoop.
  • The other team can then take the ball out
  • make the space bigger/smaller
  • place more/less hoops


  • All children dribble with the ball in a designated area.
  • The trainer is 'mother/ father'.
  • Regularly the children ask: "Mother what time is it?"
  • If the mother mentions a random time, the kids just keep driving the ball.
  • But when mother answers, "It's bedtime", all the children try to get out of the area as quickly as possible before they are tagged by the mother.


  • Play the ball hard and attackers in the circle look for the scoring zones and try to score creatively.
  • The aim when passing the ball in is to play hard and not to pass to a player.
  • Player 1 plays the ball to Player 2,
  • Player 2 plays the ball to Player 3,
  • Player 1 has meanwhile run on to the position of Player 2 only to stand a bit deeper,
  • Player 3 plays the ball to Player 1,
  • Player 2 ran behind his ball and also went a little deeper,
  • Player 1 plays the ball to Player 2,
  • Repeat until you reach the goal.
  • You start with 3 teams, A, B and C. 
  • The game will be played on about half a field, 
  • the ball divider/referee is in the centre of the field in a marked square, 
  • this square can't be played through. 
  • There is a goalkeeper in the goal and two goals on the half way line. 
  • Team A starts defending, 
  • team B is attacking, 
  • team C is divided over the 2 small goals.
  • Team A has to make sure the ball reaches team C. 
  • At this moment team B is defending and attacking team C.
