  • B takes the ball in front of him so he can take the ball and runs towards the circle 
  • B aligns the ball en finishes on goal
  • Try to keep possession of the ball 1 v 1.
  • This forces the players to look for space and make feints.
  • Throw the ball from the center line and let it finish.
  • Technique exercise 
  • 3 different actions we will refine and train further
  • Exercise at A: Two lift actions with at the last one an acceleration to the circle (also practice with backhand lift)
  • Exercise at B: Forehand turn them in steps to the left and from there turn them in the other direction and then accelerate towards the circle.
  • Exercise at C: Entry exercise to the left and accelerate and the other side along it.
  • They walk in the direction of the little v and step in with their left foot and let the ball go that way as well and bring it back and accelerate the other way and pull this acceleration through to the circle and then round it off.
  • Exercise expand on both sides
  • A gives a push to B
  • B takes the ball closed because defender D is in his back. 
  • B accelerates dribbling with the ball on the stick along the pilons, D runs with B because he doesn't want B to go along.
  • D may try to conquer the ball when B has passed the pilons.
  • B wants to pass the ball to C. If D intercepts, he passes the ball to C so that the person can continue with the exercise. 
  • If B gets the ball to C, C will do the same and the defender E will defend. If E picks up the ball, he can finish at the goal. 
  • How to continue, A goes to the spot of B, B goes to the spot of D, D goes to the spot of C, C goes to the spot of E and E goes to the spot of A.
