- Between each cone there is a beam and they lift the ball over it
- After the last lift they push the ball to B
- B takes and shoots at goal with a flat
- Open take,
- Accelerate & push pass from the run (if necessary, alternate the exercise with other techniques such as hit, push pass, backhand pass)
Goal: Build up by moving the ball.
- 1 starts with the ball and plays it to 2
- 2 plays the ball back to 1
- 1 plays the ball to 3
- 3 plays the ball to 4
- 4 starts the attack and may choose how he does this
Point of attention: The defenders try to get rid of the ball as quickly and skillfully as possible
- 2 equal teams, or in case of odd numbers with a joker,
- try to keep the players on the team for as long as possible.
- This can be done through short replay, the duel and then replay.
- To regain that ball feeling and get back into the swing of things.
- The players form pairs
- and they stand opposite each other on a few meters (5 for example).
- Then they start pushing each other.
- At a certain moment, they take some more distance and start flattening.
: To get warm through a combination of passing, running, and picking up in the run and from standstill.
:This exercise is also known from volleyball. The pawns are not exactly in a triangle. It is possible, depending on the number of players, to set up a multiple of the exercise.
- The player at A passes the ball straight to the player at B.
- The player at B plays the ball to the player at C and runs towards point A.
- The player at C receives the ball at point D and passes it to point A.
- For the changeover, A runs to B, B via D to C and C to A.
- Variations can be made in terms of stroke. (hit, push, flats)
- The distances can be made larger or smaller to adjust the level of difficulty.
- Pawns can be placed to play in between. This is to increase the purity. When you make the cones smaller, the degree of difficulty increases.
- To play the ball from C to D there can be bounced.
- To play the ball from D to A you can play bounce.
- You can also place point C on the other side so that you reverse backhand and forehand.
- When you place point C at 90 degrees from point B, you can do the same exercise, only then you will hit point D from a different angle.
- When you set up different situations, you can rotate the exercise. Situation A is the standard, in situation B the exercise is mirrored, in situation C the exercise is set up so that point B and C are at 90 degrees from each other and situation D is a mirror of situation C.
Points of attention:
- As a trainer you can take a good look at the different techniques of your players.
- Sit low at the take-off.
- When playing the ball from C to D, the ball may not shoot too far in the direction of A. The intention is that the player coming from B should take the ball at right angles.
- Play the ball on the forehand where possible.
- Stand ready to receive the ball. (low to the ground, stick on the ground)
: Various technical forms to warm up.
:The exercise can be set up one-sided or two-sided. This depends on the number of players in the training.
- At point A, the player makes a drag and passes the pawns. Then he passes to the player at point B.
- The player at point B takes the ball and dribbles to point C. From there he passes to the player at point C.
- The player receives the ball and turns towards the goal, completing the pass
- Before turning, you run after the ball. Point D rejoins point A again.
- You can set up the exercise single-sided and double-sided.
- You can also choose to warm up the goalkeeper in this way.
- At C, you can switch sides. If you are coming from the right, play the ball to the right, so that you can practise from both sides.
Points of attention:
- This is a good time to look at different techniques of your players and polish them.
- When turning and dribbling, the ball must stay on the stick.
- There is only one point at C, so players should not get in each other's way and look for the next ball to enter play.
- All balls are played into the forehand of the teammates.
:The purpose is to teach you how to make space for your teammates by claiming a defender to you.
- It looks like the player at point A is going to take the ball out, but instead of doing so he leaves the ball and runs to point C.
- At the moment that the player at A runs away, the player at point B takes over his position.
- The player with the defender at point C runs in as soon as he sees the player at point A leave the ball and run towards him.
- The ball is taken out towards point D.
- At point D the ball is taken out and played to point C. After playing the ball this player walks to point E.
- The player now at point C plays the ball to the player running to point E.
- You can also mirror the exercise on the other side.
- When D can bounce the ball instead of taking it and playing it, the speed increases significantly.
- When C can also rebound, this increases the speed and effectiveness
- You can also give the C defender a more active role by having him try to get in front of his man.
Points of attention
- The smoother the exercise runs, the harder it is to defend it.
- Passes must be accurate for the exercise to be successful.
- Because there are many changes of position, it is important that you explain the exercise step by step.
- Player 1 plays the ball with a hard push into the attacker who has come running from the spot.
- The attacker takes the ball strongly and passes it back.
- Player 1 plays the ball to the side.
- The player on the side plays the ball directly to the corner.
- Now the team can shift via the left.
