2-on-1 Extending Attacker to Goal

 

DRILL OBJECTIVE(S) EXECUTION OF VERTICAL 2-on-1 ELIMINATION INTO ATTACK
PLAYERS 4+ PLAYERS, GK OPTIONS
SPACE HLAF-FIELD
EQUIPMENT 5+ BALLS

EXPLANATION:

  • X1 initiates the play by passing to X2’s stick.
  • X2 receives with back facing the attacking goal, then turns out to the forehand side and looks upfield.
  • As X1 is passing to X2, X3 is setting up space upfield by leading inside, getting behind the defender O.
  • X2 turns and looks upfield and passes to X3, who is leading either inside or outside to get open.
  • X3 receives pass, eliminates defender and shoots on goal. 

COACHING POINTS:

  • X2 should turn eyes and hips upfield as quickly as possible coming out of the turn to see X3’s movement.
  • X3 should engage the defender and try to get in his blind spot behind him, hesitating and making a clear double-lead to get open.
  • X2 carries ball in option position, prepared to release the pass on the move as soon he sees the opening. 

EVALUATION:

  • The flow of the play should start slow on the initial pass and reception, and accelerate as X2 turns upfield. Maintaining and accelerating speed will prevent recovering defenders from getting back into the play.
  • Communication/connection between X2 and X3 is critical here - are they looking for each other and signaling their intent clearly?
  • Deception - X2 should be able to pass to X3 without looking directly at the target.
