Hockey drills for attack / offense

  • The players are divided into teams of 3.
  • The game is played 3-3 on different fields.
  • Players can score in 2 goals and therefore must also defend 2 goals.
  • Variation:
    • Take away the goal.
    • Each team can only score on 1 goal, so they only have to defend 1 goal.

High tempo switching in a match form.

  • 3 teams (blue, red & white);
  • Each team consists of 3, 4 or 5 players;
  • Attacking team (A) has 1 player in excess (so 3:2, 4:3 ...);
  • One player of the defending team (B) stands in the box next to the trainer;
  • Non-playing team (C) stands at the centre line;
  • When A has scored, they defend with n-1 men;
  • Team B sets up at the half way line and then attacks.
  • Left-right alternate.
  • Coach puts ball in play.
  • Turn over:
    • Attack on the left: Blue attacks, white defends, red is ready on the right (II)
    • Attack on right: Blue defends (n-1), Red attacks, White prepares on left (I)
    • Attack over left: White attacks, Red defends (n-1), Blue stands ready (II)
  • Player 1 plays the ball to player 2 and player 1 runs on
  • Player 2 bounces the ball back to player 1,
  • Player 1 lines up the ball between the pawns (the player himself will not run in the "pawn box".
  • Player 1 finishes the ball on goal.
  • Player 1 plays the ball to Player 2 and runs towards the goal,

  • The field is the 23, from marker to other marker
  • You may shoot on goal from any position in the field if not dangerous
  • After 2 goals by the same team the losing team switches (After 3 wins the winning team switches)
