This drill is designed to assist attackers in developing consistent and effective riding skills. Too often, little emphasis is placed on riding in practice.
Description of Drill-Execution
Start with 3 attackers and 4 long pole defensemen. Have the 4, clearing defensemen form a box in the attack area. The 3 attackers must force clearers out of the box. The defenders can move only when they have the ball or only a short distance to meet the pass.
- Communication on the ride
- Favoring most dangerous receiver
- Splitting offside players
Variations/Progression/Increased difficulty (As your players improve their skills incorporate the following…)
Allow attackers to move freely in the box.
