hockey drills for Dribbling
- 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.
- The exercises can be played in 2 variations: the one for real beginning hockey players (this exercise can be used for a clinic for example) and the one for beginning hockey players who have already been in contact with hockey.
- Variant 1:
- Player 1 plays the ball to player 2, he takes the ball and passes on to player 3.
- Player 3 takes the ball and shoots at goal.
- Player 4 tries to stop the ball with the bottom of the foot or with the stick.
- Player 4 picks up the ball and joins the row at the back of the starting pilon of player 1.
- For safety's sake, don't shoot at goal when player 4 takes the ball.
- The balls can also be taken out of the goal later on or use a break for that.
- This is for safety reasons.
- Each player takes a pilon.
- Fields of about 10x5 are made.
- The pilon is placed in the middle of the back lines.
The aim is to play past your opponent and dribble the ball over the pilon. IT IS NOT ALLOWED TO SHOOT FROM 10 METERS!
The winner goes one square to the right and the loser goes one square to the left. Rounds of -/+ 2 minutes
- Practicing some useful hockey techniques.
- The player starts at the top black pilon.
- He/she goes through the red slalom and then dribbles towards the (dark) blue pilon.
- From the (dark) blue pilon an Indian will follow
- Dribble to the yellow pilon.
- This is followed by passing moves, in this case a drag has been chosen.
- With other movements, the pilons may have to stand slightly different.
- But here the player runs to the left (end of the L) and drags in front of the 3 pilons the ball forcefully to the right.
- This is repeated again and then the player pushes the ball onto the black goal.
- This exercise can be made easier/complicated. E.g. by changing the passing movements, increasing/reducing the distance of dribbling, making the goal smaller/ larger, adjust the slalom slightly, etc. etc. You can really let your own imagination run wild.
- The trainer (T) rolls the ball (1) to one of the four front players (for example A).
- Player A receiving the ball (2) plays a duel with player V1 opposite him.
- The goal is to score the ball at the opponent's goal.
- If V1 manages to intercept the ball, he plays it to V2.
- Now V2 may try to score with player B.
- After a goal, the form of play starts over again.
Making it easier
- Play a 1-1 duel on the two fields for a few minutes, after a goal, the substitute player comes into play.
Make it more difficult
- After the ball is taken by V1, V1 and V2 may try to score against player A (now it has become a 2-1 game).
- A has to defend.
- If A takes the ball, he plays it to player B.
- Player A and B play a 2-2 duel on players V1 and V2.
- 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.
- Place all the hoops in the room (islands).
- On the outer side of the square, dribble with the ball to the left, dribble to a hoop and stand in it with the ball.
- Dribble around the corner to the right
- On the trainer's sign, dribble inside the square around 5 different hoops, counterclockwise.
- change the number of hoops
- always go to a different color hoop
