Hockey drills for hitting

Ad
  • 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.

Aim:

To become physically as well as technically warm as preparation for the training.


Set up:

The exercise will be done with a maximum of 4 people. Of course you can put a multiple of these so that the exercise still works.

1. The players 1 start with the ball and play it to their players 2. Then they change positions.

2. Players 2 play the ball back to players 1 and also change positions.

Variations:

  • You can vary the way of passing (hitting, push, flats)
  • Increase the distance between the pilons that players only has to run further.
  • Increase the distance between the pilons that players have to pass over longer distances
  • Increase both distances.
  • Increase speed.
  • Make as many successful passes as possible in time.


Points of attention:

  • Sit low for a good control.
  • Stick to the ground at ball control.
  • Play the ball on the forehand side.
  • Stand still while performing a ball control.
  • Person 1 dribbles with the ball, does a 3D trick 
  • and passes a backhand to player 2 while running. 
  • Player 2 passes the ball to player 3 in the run. 
  • He dribbles along the obstacles and does a 3D trick at the end, 
  • Then player 3 hits the goal with a backhand shot.

Variations:

  • You can vary the way of passing (hitting, push, flats)
  • Increase the distance between the pilons so that one only has to walk further.
  • Increase the distance between the pilons so that one only has to move on.
  • Increase both distances.
  • Increase speed
  • Make as many successful passes as possible in time.


Points of attention:

  • Sit low for good control.
  • Stick to the ground at ball control.
  • Play ball on the forehand side.
  • Stand still at ball acceptance.



  • Put out gates of pilons (2 meters wide). from sideline to sideline.
  • Players get 3 balls on the sideline
  • any ball they can pass through a gate
  • In advance, the player indicates which gate he is going to play through
  • Each gate has points, the further the gate the higher the points:
  • 10 Meter gate = 1 point
  • 15 meter gate =5 points
  • 20 meter gate = 10 points
  • 30 meter gate is =20 points
  • 40 meter gate = 30 points
  • See how many points each player scores, this makes it clear to the players that a long-distance pass is often not very accurate.
  • In addition, you can show that pushing and flatting can be much more convenient than hitting.
  • You can put (depending on the level) a square of 3M x3M on the field and if the players score and the ball lands in the square it is worth 50 points.

  • 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.
  • Put the pilons as shown in the figure
  • Spread the balls over pilons C and D.
  • In this exercise you place a player at pilons C and D.
  • The rest of the team will line up at pilon A.
  • From A onwards, the player walks around the pilon
  • From the post, the player makes a sideways movement facing the ball (facing C).
  • Player C plays the ball in the forehand of A
  • A takes the ball and turns right open
  • A runs in the direction of the circle and finishes at goal. 
  • From here he runs to D and receives another ball.

  • The player standing at point D calls the player to finish the ball with a backhand or forehand.
