Hockey drills for attack / offense

  • Practicing putting down a bowl and playing in a cup.
  • Ball starts on the sideline and there is no room at the front so the ball has to go back!
    • How do you stand in a half-circle? 
  • We play in a 4 man half-circle and so we stand as it is in the picture below. 
  • What is the task of the people in the half-circle? 
  • The left back receives the ball first from the midfielder who takes it out because there is no room in the front. 
  • It is the task of the left back to have already looked in advance where is the space and where can I go with the ball again. 
  • Then you have the left center man in the half-circle.
  • He takes some steps backwards so he can receive the ball from the back left in a safe place. and must also have looked beforehand how is the game and where can I go with the ball when I'm going to get the ball. 
  • The right middle man in the half-circle should have an overview of the game and make sure she is playable for the other middle man or even from the left back if there is room for it. 
  • The right back can stand a bit high or some pockets, he must see the game of the opponent and be able to play on it.
  • If high pressure is applied, he has to drop back a bit more to be playable for the people in the bowl behind him.
  • If they give less pressure he can stand high to keep the field long and wide and keep playing forward. 
  • How are we going to build up forward what is the task of the midfielders? 
  • The task of the midfielders is to offer from the inside out, walk towards the ball and if they don't get the ball you walk away again to create space for your fellow players.
  • The other team will put pressure on the players who are playing in the half-circle and will experiment with this. 
  • Attack through the middle which starts with a 2:1 
  • B is a deep man starting in the circle. A starts with the ball and together with B he wants to complete the goal. 
  • C wants to slow down the game and close the pass lines so that D gives the time to come and help him. 
  • Goal of attackers:
    • Ball pass over the opponent's backhand side.
    • Playing a fellow player on the forehand
    • Making eye contact with your fellow player
    • Speed making 
  • Goal of the defender
    • Float your opponent to your forehand (your backhand side must be closed)
    • Accompany your opponent 
    • Slow down the game so that D gives time to come and help you 
  • When D has arrived, one goes on the deep man and the other puts effective pressure on the opponent and waits with the ball take away until the opponent makes the mistake.
  • An extension to the exercise of an attack over right under defenders. 
  • The goal of the exercise is that the 3 attackers want to get past the two defenders in an effective way. 
  • First have them do it again a number of times. After that the exercise that they have done for this purpose will come back. 
    • This is exactly what they have to do, only now there are defenders and they have to watch even more and give the safe pass.  
  • The first ball of A always goes back and from there they can build up.
  • It then becomes a 3:2 
  • A game form where switching is tested. 
  • You make two teams, if you score one goal you can take the ball out immediately and you will score on the other side. 
    • This means that both teams have to switch because they are now coming towards the other goal. 
  • Player 1 passes the ball to player 3 who has been caught.
  • Player 3 spins the ball even further around the pilons and passes the ball to the red pilon to which player 2 has been caught.
  • Player 1 has walked in to the head of the circle, player 1 gets the ball from player 2 and finishes at goal.
  • Player 1 walks to the right pole of the goal
  • Player 2 plays the ball towards the blue pilon and allows player 1 to tip the ball in the loop.
  • Player 2 runs to the left pole of the goal
  • Player 3 plays the ball towards the red pilon and allows player 2 to tip the ball in the loop
  • By swapping:
    • 1 --> 2
    • 2 --> 3 
    • 3--> 1
  • V1 passes the ball to V2. 
  • V2 takes on open/closed and finishes at goal.
  • V1 passes the ball to A1.
  • A1 attacks, V2 defends.
  • V1 passes the ball to A2.
  • A2 coincides with A1, V2 defends.
  • V1 passes the ball to A3.
  • A3 attacks together with A1 and A2, V1 and V2 defends.
  • Points of attention:
    • Let the defenders choose who they go for, on the ball or continue to cover their man.
    • Attackers must keep moving.
  • The exercise can be played on two sides. 
  • There are 2 passers on the PC points on the back line to the right and left of the goal. 
  • The player starts behind the 25 yard line, receives the ball from the left, gets the ball to the semi-circle and then has to score. 
  • This player then sprints past the penalty mark, then sprints back behind the 25 yard line, and then has to run back towards the goal to receive the pass from the other attacker (right) and do the same (scoring, sprint past the strokepunt/puntball point and back to the 25 yard line)
  • Use pilons to set up two squares 
  • Around the dotted head circle (left and right next to/opposite the goal)
