Tackling Drills, Techniques & Strategies for Field Hockey
with Shiv Jagday,
Technical Head Coach for FHBC (Field Hockey British Columbia), FIH accredited coach;
former Canadian and USA national team coach, coaching national teams in the Olympic Games, World Cups and the Pan Am Games

Former Canadian and USA National Team coach Shiv Jagday shows how to develop tackling skills and how to efficiently critique and identify areas of improvement. From his perspective, tackling is position- and field-location specific; one technique does not suit every situation.

In this video you will learn multiple tackling techniques and the best field position for each tackle.

Training for proper tackling starts with being aware of what side of the field you're on and where you want to force the ball. Therefore, an important part of training includes dividing and identifying the different parts of the field. Coach Jagday demonstrates how dividing the field makes it easier for players to understand the best tackle to use.

Jagday shares drills that efficiently teach players and coaches alike the correlation between stance and the various types of tackles. Shadow dancing and footwork drills - with and without the ball - help players develop these important fundamental skills. The defensive stance must allow the player to recover quickly from their tackling efforts.

Once players understand the connection between the tackle they use and the specific part of the field they're on, practice progresses to 1-on-1, 2-on-1 and 3-on-1 drills that better reflect game-like conditions. Coach Jagday explains how tackling is more than simply taking the ball away from the offense. Tackling strategies include tactics, planned footwork, close shadowing of the ball handler, timing, shifting your hands and grip as well as channeling the ball away from the areas of greatest threat.

Knowing precisely when to tackle or when to commit is probably more important than knowing how to tackle.

This presentation will strengthen the tackling skills of more experienced players and lay a strong foundation for new players. Coach Jagday gives coaches the insight to efficiently correct and improve their players.

Shiv Jagday Skills and Drills for Field Hockey 2-Pack
FHD-04781A: with Shiv Jagday,
Technical Head Coach for FHBC (Field Hockey British Columbia), FIH accredited coach;
former Canadian and USA national team coach, coaching national teams in the Olympic Games, World Cups and the Pan Am Games

Improve your team's competitiveness using first touch techniques from former Canadian and USA national team coach Shiv Jagday. You'll learn how to control the ball and force defenders to react to your actions instead of influencing them.

An effective "first touch" of the ball often times ensures successful passing and receiving, ball movement, advancement of the ball and success when facing the defense.

Coach Jagday spends minimal time on individual drills, preferring to work on improving first touch skills within game-like situations. He expertly divides the field and player positions into interlocking, triangular groups of three. From this format, players practice passing and receiving, and build plays for moving the ball down field. As players progress, Jagday increases the space between players thereby challenging their ability and better simulating game situations.

After covering the basics, Coach Jagday discusses how to receive a pass under pressure and draw or entice a defender, then make a pass to the overlapping teammate within the appropriate triangle of players. He demonstrates how focusing on individual technique and delaying a pass, allows the receiver to adjust the leading angles and prepares them to make the next positive move.

The best field hockey players in the world use their first touch to create time and space and to place the defender at a disadvantage. Coach Jagday's first touch techniques and his strategy for dividing the playing field will improve your team's first touch skills and ultimately their level of competitiveness.

Cover: 22 dynamic practice drills for goalkeepers and defense
22 Dynamic Practice Drills for Goalkeepers and Defense
with Enza Steele, Lynchburg College Head Coach;17x Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) champions; 10x ODAC Coach of the Year; over 500 career wins; has led Lynchburg to 18 NCAA Tournament appearances

Strong defense is vital to success. Enza Steele presents a comprehensive practice video filled with drills and exercises that will help you strengthen all of the components of your defense. The video is divided into three sections:

  • Goalkeeping - Agility, reaction time and decision making skills.
  • Continuous Shooting - Quick and repetitive shooting drills to develop GK game-pace timing
  • Defense - features 1v1, 2v1, bringing the ball out of the backfield and finishing with channeling.

More than showing a series of unrelated drills, Coach Steele explains a useful blue print that can be applied for developing your own drills. Her drills follow a four-stage progression: execution of proper technique, combining multiple skills, adding more players, and making your decision using critical thinking. Through this four-stage build-up progression, Coach Steele demonstrates a series of drills that will help you improve all areas of your team defense.

Goalkeeping
Utilizing nine drills that concentrate on building agility and footwork while combining a variety of shooting scenarios, Coach Steele covers all the essential skills required for being a successful goalkeeper. Drills focus on proper positioning, efficient movement across the goal (arcing, angles and drop steps), kick saves, clearing and hand positioning are the foundation for successful goaltending. Goalkeepers of any level will be able to improve their technique through the detailed instruction provided.

Continuous Shooting
In an effort to develop quick and spontaneous shooting to simulate a high tempo offensive opponent in practice, Coach Steele presents six effective drills constructed so that the attack can maintain continuous shooting against the goalkeepers and defense. By creating a strong attack tempo in practice, the defense will be challenged to meet and train against a game-speed offense.

Defense
Defenders begin working on their individual defensive body positioning against an attacker. This progresses to defending the circle as the attack enters from different positions on the field. The defense is shown how and where to channel the attack so that they are forced to take shots away from the center, low angle. Develop hand-eye coordination, work on transition skills, footwork, elimination skills and more.

These drills and exercises will provide lesser experienced players with a solid foundation from which to improve upon. More experienced players will also benefit by employing the details that Coach Steele explains throughout the entire video.

Open Practice with Tara Danielson
with Tara Danielson, Stanford University Head Coach;
3x NorPac Coach of the Year, member of the U.S. National Field Hockey Team (1998-2005)

and Steve Danielson, Stanford University Assistant Coach;
member of the U.S. National Field Hockey Team (1989-2010), member of Team USA at the 1996 Olympic Games

Stanford Coaches Tara and Steve Danielson show you how to develop a team with sharp moves, quick passes and play a fast paced attacking hockey. Through these drills, your players will develop into confident ball handlers. The drills on this DVD will help develop an attacking style of hockey, concentrating on hand and footwork development through the following drills:

  • Passing patterns to goal to include skip passing
  • Attack and Defensive Build-Up
  • Small Game scenarios
  • Counter Attack Options (3 v 3 possessions)
  • Large Game scenarios

This is natural progression from individual skills to team skills working in pairs and small numbers to large groups helps to refine what the players already know.

The DVD begins with comprehensive team dynamic stretching and warm-ups. The dynamic stretching is presented with enough detail so that a coach can easily add this efficient warm-up method into their program.

Stanford works from the philosophy of "Fail Forward and Succeed." In putting this philosophy into practice, this DVD shows a training session that is high tempo and quick paced. Limiting the time segments of each exercise increase repetitions and encourage players to perform at their highest level. Consistently practicing at true game speed provides the correct conditions so that each player will eventually find success while practicing these `High-Tempo' drills. Practicing in this way demonstrates Stanford's philosophy of "Fail Forward and Succeed." The `High-Tempo' skills carry forward throughout the practice session and form the foundation for a fast paced, game speed practice.

Practice begins with passing patterns to goal, emphasizing basic skill execution for passing and shooting to include stance, body position, correctly receiving and delivering the ball in a `High-Tempo' format. Drills progress from stationary passing to passing to the ball receiver on the move, working on leading away from the passer when receiving pass. In each case the passer needs to be performing a pre-scan before passing. Continuing the progression, the shooter now receives the ball with their stick perpendicular to the goal and their feet facing toward the goal. This is a very difficult technique but it is broken down into its simplest components making it easy to understand and practice.

Throughout the practice session, players are given strategies for ball handling in an ultimate effort to find open space and success in moving the ball downfield. Reinforcing basic concepts, the Stanford coaches are able to deliver valuable tips that can be applied to any level of play.

Coaches and athletes will learn to train to in tight spaces and then transitioning to bigger space. This will teach players to quickly add width and depth to the game and reap benefits from fast breaks. Players will learn to use open space, change in speed and running off the ball to their advantage.

Coach Danielson not only covers a large number of drills but also puts them together in such away that coaches and their teams can implement these right away and start seeing the benefits.

Goalkeeping Drills for Field Hockey
with Tara Danielson, Stanford University Head Coach;
3x NorPac Coach of the Year, member of the U.S. National Field Hockey Team (1998-2005)

and Patrick Cota, Stanford University Assistant Coach;
member of the U.S. National Field Hockey Team (1999-2012), accumulated 119 international caps in his career

Stanford Goalkeeper Coach Patrick Cota presents a system of skills and drills for field hockey to develop a sharp, quick and efficient goalkeeper. Coach Cota explains and demonstrates following concepts:

  • Progressing Dynamic Footwork Movement drills
  • Progressing Dynamic Movement, Right and Left Hand with Stick and Glove
  • Progressing Dynamic Movement, Right Hand Stick
  • Leg Guard Drills with Progression to slide
  • Rapid Fire Shots all Directions
  • Goalkeepers Stance

The DVD begins with comprehensive team dynamic stretching and warm-ups. A quick review of the goalkeeping techniques shows a high level summary of what will be covered before the individual techniques are explained and broken down to their basic components and theory.

Coach Cota details the goalkeepers stance and the importance of its correct execution. The stance is explained so that they can achieve explosive energy when making saves. This allows player the ability to clear the ball after the save, thereby eliminating the opportunity for rebound shots. Employing the philosophy of clearing the ball on each save is a key component to being a successful goalkeeper.

Goalkeepers footwork is key to being able to make saves and clear the ball. Coach Cota provides detailed instruction beginning with the stationary stance through the correct technique needed to handle each specific shot and exploding through the saves. The goalkeeper is taught to drive through the shots, maintaining balance in an effort to handle any shot that comes.

The goalkeeper's workout progresses to reactionary saves. With quick passes the point of attack may change and goal keeper must adjust with quick sharp moves and not be caught out of position. The coach challenges the goalkeeper by not announcing what shot they will be required to save. These shots are practiced at game speed.

In addition to providing a direction on goaltending techniques that build upon the basic, this DVD provides the theory and detailed explanation as to how and why a given movement is best suited for a specific shot.

This video provides a wealth of information to train someone who, at many occasions, is the last player left to defend the goal.
