Hockey drills for passing
- Put out the columns as shown in the figure
- Spread the balls over pylon C and D.
- In this exercise you place a player at pylon C and D.
- The rest of the team will line up at pylon A.
- From A onwards, the player walks around the pylon
- 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 turns open to the left and finishes on goal again.
- Pass the ball to a fellow player under/over the pylons with stick.
- Passes: push, slide and flats.
- Stick at different heights
- increase distance between each other
- pylons closer together (gate smaller)
- Perform the exercise with groups of three
- Each team has 2 goals. (see rules triple hockey).
- 3 against 3 where 5x passes is 1 point (if the ball is intercepted, start counting again).
- possibly 3 against 2 games with 1 player (trainer?)
- always with the attacking team (complicated exercise!)
- Each team has 5 inverted pylons to defend.
- The pylons are on the line and the players may only stand/defend on their own half.
- Which team knocks over the pylons of the other first.
- Player A runs towards pylon 1 or 2, whichever player B designates.
- A runs back to his starting place.
- Then A plays the ball to B.
- Player B does the same
- Run with the ball and pass the pylo, then play the ball to your fellow player.
- Take the ball on the forehand and run to the pylon and pass.
- At the end of the exercise run back to the beginning
- Change sides after every turn.
- You place 11 pylons at different distances, under each pylon you put a stack of city names.
- Each 2 tries to reach all 11 pylons as fast as possible.
- You dribble to a pylon, take a city map and take it back with you, tap the next one and it runs to another pylon.
- Each city you return to the trainer will be stamped on the 11 city card.
- Who reached the 11 cities first?
(first practice without ball and stick)
- From the two pilons, aim (push/slide) at the inverted pilons.
- defender 1 passes to attacker 1
- attacker 1 to attacker 2
- through pass from attacker 2 to attacker 1
- defender 1 defends on attacker 1 when he has received the through pass
- attacker 2 attacks > 2v1
