Drill One: Overload at goal_4v1 into 5v2 (15 mins)

4v1 rondo in top third. 4 must complete five passes. Once they have completed five passes they attack the goal and the high defender and attacker become active. 

Rotate roles regularly. 

Coaching points:

- Play to space. WHY? Running into defenders usually results in losing the ball. 

- Be outside the defenders reach and create passing angles. WHY? If not, the defender can intercept the pass, and we will lose the ball. 

- Attempt to pick the ball up on the move, with your first touch taking the ball to space. WHY? Picking up on the move helps you keep the ball away from defenders. 

What does good look like?

- Playing to space

- Players making an effort to lead outside the reach of the defender

Players push pass the ball through the following pattern ending with a shot at goal.

Players start on yellow cones. Put yellow cones down to designate starting points.

Coaching points:

- Push the ball by starting with the stick off the ball and driving the stick through the ball. WHY? This technique is easier to do on the run.

- Attempt to pick the ball up dynamically, with your first touch taking the ball where you want to go next. WHY? Being able to pick up the ball dynamically is crucial to evading pressure.

Drill Three: Invasion Rondo (15 mins)

Two boxes side by side. Five players in each box. One team starts with the ball and the other sends one player across to try and win the ball. The five must keep possession off the one. If the one wins it or the five make 10 passes, the ball is passed to the other side and the now out of possession team send one player across to win it back. The drill repeats. 

Progression: Defending team can send two players across. 

Coaching points:

- Scan to see where other players are. WHY? This enables you to decide what to do next.  

- Know your next pass. WHY? This helps you play quickly before defenders come.

- Prepare your body for your next pass. WHY? This helps you play quickly before defenders come.

What does good look like?
