pass-to-the-right-before-passing-to-the-left pass-to-the-right-before-passing-to-the-left 

The pass to the right goes diagonally forward and over the backhand side of the defender, the pass to the left you play wide and goes over the forehand side of the defender.

Therefore the pass to the right is preferred over the pass to the left.



  • This is a basic exercise in preparation. 
  • Just like a tennis player who prepares for training with basic strokes, the players must prepare for the complex training and competition forms, with direct simple passes on top of each other. 
  • In this way, the trainer has the ability to see technical errors in each individual player and correct them as early as the basic exercise. 
  • The players pass the ball directly between two pylons and walk counter-clockwise to the other side. 
  • The size of the target and the distance between the players will be adjusted according to the age and level of the players.
  • Two solving exercises that you can both do for 10 minutes
  • Also first the explanation of the tip-in exercise
  • B starts running around the pilons and accelerates when he reaches the goal towards A.
  • A gives a hard facing pass towards the goal
  • B tip the ball so that it changes direction
  • Then they change places
  • Other exercise
  • We are going to practice walking in out
  • A is a right behind who wants to play the ball somewhere. B is the middle right and he is going to run one in out. 
  • He starts in the middle of the field and wants to offer himself for A.
  • He accelerates towards the sideline A may choose whether he wants to give the ball or not.
  • If he doesn't give the ball, A finishes his line further and comes back to where he started and then runs again on another in-out. 
  • If A passes, B takes the ball and is allowed to score on the goaltender.
  • 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.
  • Tips for the attackers
    • Keep the ball close to you and screen it with your stick
    • Pass the ball over the backhand side of your opponent
    • Accelerate to make it harder for the defender to stop you
  • Tips for the defenders
    • Keep your stick on the ground, you can react much faster to what your opponent is doing
    • Keep your opponent on the forehand and make sure the line is closed!
    • Let the attacker make the mistake and then grab the pass.
    • Guide your opponent in the direction where you want him/her to go
