Offense, Defense, Midfield
This conditioning drill focuses on running, stick handling, defense, dodging and scoring while tired.
Description of Drill-Execution
Pair up players of equal ability; offensive men versus defensive men. Players are lined up at the midfield lines, two lines can work simultaneously. The offensive player breaks downfield on the outside, defensive player on the inside. When the offensive player reaches goal line extended they should dodge and go to goal in a 1 v 1. Both players will come up the opposite side of the field, defensive player on the outside and offensive player on the inside. The defensive player must clear the ball via a zig-zag. As players get to the midfield they should reverse positions and continue to the opposite goal.
