Reverse Stick Flow Drill 1

 

DRILL OBJECTIVE(S) EXECUTION OF REVERSE STICK PASSING SKILLS ENDING WITH SHOT ON GOAL
PLAYERS 8+ PLAYERS
SPACE HALF FIELD
EQUIPMENT 25+ BALLS

EXPLANATION:

  • FLOW DRILL: after each pass, player follows pass to the next station.
  • X1 starts with a free hit, ball positioned in front, and makes a lateral reverse stick pass out to X2.
  • X2 receives and carries ball inside the field aggressively, then makes a reverse stick pass on the move towards the corner flag, where X3 is arcing out to receive the pass on the move.
  • X3 picks up the ball on the run and attacks the endline. When close to the endline, she spins out, protecting the ball and turning away from the goal and hits a reverse stick pass to X4 at the top of the circle.
  • X4 receives the ball forehand, turning with the movement of the ball and allowing it to come across her body. She controls the ball to bring it just inside the circle and takes a reverse stick shot to goal. 

COACHING POINTS:

  • Encourage players to use different types of reverse stick pass to see which is most comfortable for them:
  • Rev Stick Sweep.
  • Rev Stick Hit.
  • Split Grip Rev Stick Hit (hands apart).
  • Focus on the benefits of the ability to pass the ball Left to Right from directly in front of the player’s body: Vision 

EVALUATION:

  • With these more advanced skills, there will be a range of ability/accuracy on passes. Allow time for repetition and skills to develop. Place extra balls at each station for players to pick up if the previous pass does not hit the target.
