SET UP

  • In pairs, stand opposite your partner.
  • Each player starts behind their base line.
  • The player with the ball is aiming to pass the ball beyond the 2 metre line furthest from them.
  • Their partner's aim is to try and meet the ball to trap it before it gets across the 2 metre line just in front of them.
  • Swap partners every few minutes.

16 Hit Out

SET UP

 

  • Set up player positions for a 16 with an overload for the team taking the hit out. Eg. 5 v 3 or 6 v 3 (add a high player for the overload team).
  • The aim for the team taking the hit out is to score in the mini goal.
  • The aim for the pressing team is to win possession and score in the main goal.
  • Depending on how much space you have, the mini goal can be at the 23, the halfway line, or between the two.
  • The team taking the hit out should be successful.

COACHING POINTS

  • Positions - where does the ball taker need his/her teammates? Wide, more than one option available, movement in the middle to break up the press.
  • Type of pass - accurate, ball pace, flat.
  • Feet and stick work - getting feet around and using a drag to pass to the right.
  • Press - centre forward in front of the ball. Where do you want the team with the ball to pass? Or more importantly, where don't you want them to pass?
