Hockey drills for attack / offense

  • A starts with the ball and gives a targeted ball to B 
  • A runs to the box and starts defending
  • B takes the ball and accelerates to pass defender A 
  • Other side the same 
  • Tips for attackers:
    • Maintain your speed 
    • Have already thought about what you want to do in advance
  • Tips for defenders:
    • Axis must be tight
    • Use the jab to push your opponent to the outside
    • Stand in an active stance. 
  • The three attackers are going to try to pass in the box 3 times (if this is too easy make it more).
  • When they have passed each other three times, they can finish on goal.
  • They only have to pass the defender who is standing there. 
  • It then becomes a 3 on 2 with the attacker who was in the box. 
  • A starts with the ball and first plays the ball back to B.
  • When B has accepted the ball the 3v3 starts and the defenders may start to pressure.
  • Tips for the attackers:
    • Use the exercise of switching the strikers 
    • Only play the safe ball
    • Remember the 4 squares in the circle
  • Tips for the defenders:
    • Keep your man in the circle
    • Push them to one side 
    • Always put pressure on the ball (i.e. don't let them shoot)
  • A starts with the ball and runs towards the bar
  • There he does a chop (different action if we don't have a water court)
  • He accelerates towards the circle.
  • B and C are ready to receive the ball from A and change places at the last moment.
  • B or C receives the ball from A and then we play a 3 against 2.
  • Turnover exercise with improving conditioning. 
  • Through the axis play out a 2-1 with shot on goal.
  • On violation or goal a 3-3 on the side towards the center line. 
  • A guard pass is mandatory. 
  • 10 seconds for the 2-1 to create a shot and 10 seconds for the 3-3.
  • At guard pass 3-3 the new 2-1 already starts.
  • Simple give & go in 2 ways. 
  • Easy short finishing exercise for beginning training. 
  • Extendable to 2-1.
  • Variant 1 - Pass sideways, vertical run with diagonal pass.
  • Variant 2 - Pass sideways, diagonal run with vertical pass.
  • Variation 3 - Pass sideways, diagonal run with short diagonal pass.
  • Variant 4 - Setup as Variant 3 with a 2-1 in the circle.
  • 4 defenders in the (build up)
  • 2 midfielders
  • 3 strikers
  • 3 defenders (opponents) + goalkeeper in circle
  • Play around from the bowl without pressure (can always be added later)
  • The 2 midfielders offer themselves from the axis to the back where the ball is going. 
  • Not being passed to is going to the line and back to the axis. 
  • Not offering on the long passing line. 
  • Being played is opening up and then playing the hanging striker or the winger. 
  • After playing, continue to pass into the guard position.
  • The 2 WINGER strikers offer themselves on the 23m
  • The HANGING striker offers himself in the attack at the head of the circle. 
  • The WINGER striker on the support side looks for scoring position at the far post.
  • Player RED comes out of the square and offers himself to player BLUE.
  • BLUE passes to RED as he offers himself. 
  • Player WHITE pressures RED so it has to accept closed and plays back to BLUE (guard).
  • Player RED makes an acceleration to the left or right next to the square.
  • Player BLUE passes the ball to player RED looking carefully where RED asks for the ball (forehand or backhand).
  • RED takes the ball open and penetrates the circle to finish on goal.
  • Against a low press build up with 3 men.
  • 2 centers and 2 wide midfielders + strikers on the back line. 
  • Simple high tempo finishing exercise to practice pass lines.
