Learning Objectives

Technical Psychological
Performing under pressure.

Pressure passing and hitting (20 mins)

A pushes the ball towards B, who turns and carries the ball towards the cones. At the cones, B gives a guard pass to A, who comes running into the pass, controls it and passes towards C. C pushes towards D, who also carries and gives a guard pass, which C taps wide and then hits on goal. C must quickly return to the white cone to receive the ball again, as the next ball starts at A when C receives the guard pass from D.

A goes to B, goes to C goes to D, goes to A.

Can be performed (without a goalie) with two balls being kept in play simultaneously. Instead of hitting on goal, C performs a pass to A, completing the cycle.

This drill was inspired by and (adapted from) a drill from Hockey Coach/Sportplan.
