hockey drills for Positional play
- 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.
- 1 plays the ball using the bar to 2
2 runs in, controls the ball, moves towards the axis of the pitch and plays via the bar to 3
3 runs in, takes on and plays to the running-through number 2
2 Takes on and shoots (high) on target
Same for 4,5,6 if there are enough players for that
Press and hold 1-2-3-1 (or 1-2-3-4-5-6-1)
- Attacker plays to defender, and plays the ball back to the attacker.
- Then the attacker is allowed to attack towards goal.
- At 1, the ball begins and passes to the defender who then passes it to the out-going attacker.
- From there it is 2 to 1
- See number 2, only the players remain and it becomes a 4 against 2.
- Put out a square of 10 by 10 meters.
- A player is placed at 3 pilons.
- One pilon remains empty.
- The player with the ball plays to the pilon without a player.
- The player standing diagonally runs to the pilon and receives the ball. And so on.
- In this way, the next goal is reached:
- a lot of movement,
- playing while running
- take it in motion.
- A game is not only fun, you also learn a lot from them.
- Very simple: 2 goals, some vests and some balls.
- Surely no more explanation is required?
- This kind of game isn't really for training something specific (e.g. playing outside with a box in the middle), but just to have fun.
- If a team goes loses way too easy, you can enter the rule that they have to pass 3 times before they can score.
- Or you can make that team's goal smaller.
- 2 teams
- 5 players per team
- 3 goals per team
- 2 yellow independent goals in the centre of the pitch
- Game: team blue against team red.
- Team red scores at one of the 3 blue pilons and team blue scores at one of the 3 red pilons.
- When the ball goes through one of the two yellow goals, the goals turn around.
- Team blue scores at the blue pilons and team red scores at the red pilons.
- When the ball goes through one of the yellow goals again, it turns around again.
AREAS OF CONCERN
Ball possession Take a good look at which of the 6 goals there's a lot of free space
Not in ball possession Trap the player with the ball from multiple sides
- 3 v 2 :
- ball speed is important as is the shortest way to the goal
- make a triangle with one player wide and one player up high to stretch the field
- look for the 2 v 1
- defenders work together and defend in zone
- 4 v 3 :
- make sure where you want to play
- make game-like positions: Center mid, left mid, center striker and left forward
- ball speed
- 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.
