Messy Hockey


A small tight square, with 4 target goals or coned goal. This is a basic 2v2 with 2 games going on simultaneously. In this diagram, the reds are playing the yellows (north to south) and the blacks are playing against the blues (east to west). The interference and chaos from the other game allows players to dribble and pass under no, some and full pressure.


Lack of space encourages lots of scanning, dribbling and adapting on the move.


When to play as an individual and when to combine?

Playing with heads up (Awareness)

1v1 / 2v1 / 2v2 playing with an underload and overload
