Key details

Training Methods: Focus is put on learning through situations that are as game-like possible.

Game Play: Players will work on winning the ball back, attacking situations and developing match tactics.

Technical Skills: Players will work on moving with the ball, receiving the ball, evading defenders and passing.

Physical Skills: Players will work on basic agility and co-ordination,

Soft Skills: Players will work on the traits of being self-organised and self-aware. We also encourage all players to consider the behaviours of listening to and speaking to everyone.

A theme for all content is ‘our way’ of playing hockey, where the focus is on being attack minded.
