Hockey drills for positional play

Ad

5 against 3.

  • A passes the ball to B, B passes the ball to C.
  • When C has received the ball the 5v3 starts.
  • Tips attackers:
    • Keep speed
    • Always return the ball
    • Pass over the backhand side of the opponent
    • Keep the field wide and long
    • Communicate with each other
    • Use the in-out to receive the ball
  • Tips Defenders:
    • Close the gap
    • Close down pass lines to the front
      • Make sure they have to keep playing backwards
    • Communicate with each other
    • Keep them outside the circle (if they enter the circle, the pressure is on the ball)
    • If it is too difficult for the defenders let a tackle back runner join in

  • Further practice with half court press.
  • The goal is that they realize what they have to do when the ball is passed.
  • How should we run as a forward.

  • Ball starts at A
  • The 3 defenders position themselves so that the AXIS is closed and the ball can only be passed to the sides or back out.
  • A passes the ball to B because the AXIS is closed.
  • Now comes what the whole exercise is about what the 3 defenders should do now
  • V1 shifts so that she is in front of the ball so that the ball cannot be passed straight forwards
  • V2 stands between the person with the ball and the ball line
  • V3 who shoots at attacker C, who is giving support there. V3 makes sure that C cannot get the ball and defends on the inside, between the opponent and the goal.
  • From here on it is a 3:3
  • At the other end, it is exactly the same and the defenders do the same

  • Exercise with double-crossing your opponent
  • 1 against 2
  • A is the attacker and starts with the ball and wants to score in the little goal at the other side
  • B and C are going to double trap the opponent so that he/she cannot score
  • Tips:
    • Push them to the outside
    • When they are on the outside, press them backwards


drawing
  • Ball possession with switching moment
  • You make two teams and put two people outside the field.
  • The goal is for your team to play the man on one side.
  • For example, Red starts by playing the man on the left side and Blue has to play the man on the right side.
  • When a team has reached a point, you switch and red goes to the right side and blue to the left.

drawing
  • 3 against 3 game format
  • The aim is for you and your team to drive the ball over your opponent's back line. When you have done this you can go straight to the other back line.
  • Tips defenders:
    • Double your opponent
    • Push your opponent to one side
    • Let the opponent make the mistake
    • Maintain an active position
  • Tips attackers:
    • Make sure you let the ball do the work
    • Run the in-out
    • Always be able to return the ball
    • Play the safe ball


drawing
  • A is the attacker and wants to finish on goal.
  • B wants to defend the attacker and push him into the opposite corner with a jab.
  • Tips defender:
    • Position yourself so that the attacker can only go one way
    • Pressure effectively
    • When she is in the other box, set up a double with the two of you
  • Can turn it off more often for more speed

  • A starts with the ball and runs wide
  • The two split switch positions when A starts to run.
  • One of the two receives the ball
  • A must look carefully to see which striker is free, as there is a defender between them who wants to conquer the ball and pass to the side
  • If it goes well, add an extra defender.
  • Others play a mini game, then switch groups.

drawing
  • A takes the ball out and walks towards the circle where there is a defender and A plays the ball back to B.
  • B passes the ball to C. When the ball is in the hands of C the 4 on 2 match starts and the defenders can take the ball away.
  • Tips for the attackers:
    • Making speed
    • Positions in the circle
    • Call on a free man
    • Dare to finish
  • Tips for the defenders:
    • Close the passing line to the goal and let the attackers make the mistake.

  • A starts with the ball and runs towards the bar,
    • where he does a chop (another action if we don't have a water court)
  • He accelerates towards the circle.
  • B and C are ready to receive the ball from A and change places at the last moment.
  • B or C receives the ball from A and then we play a 3 on 2.
