Hockey skills
Skill 1:
dribbling, to dribble you have to have your Hands shoulder width apart on the stick leaning over, bend your knees and reach your stick to the ball to make contact with the ball, push it along. The ball should never leave the stick. You should use this skill when youre moving the ball down to the striker circle.

Dribbling drill:
1. In pairs one dribbles ball around a cone about 10m in front of them and back using close dribble, then partner goes. Repeat several times 2. In pairs one dribbles ball around a cone about 10m in front of them and back using the open dribble, then partner goes. Repeat several times

Skill 2:

shooting, to score an accurate goal make sure you have

the correct stance. You should point your shoulders ahead and keep your head steady and also make sure you follow you stick through.

Shooting drill:
1. Player at the top of the circle receives the ball with his/her back to the goal. Then turns with one touch, either left or right and shoots at goal. Shooting with either the flat reverse stick or the forehand. Each time the passer runs to the circle to become the next receiver and shooter. 2. The defensive player marks the offensive player man-to-man inside the circle. The offensive player will try to draw the defensive player towards the outside of the circle by cutting wide. This will help create space in front of the goal.

Skill 3: defensive tackle, to play a defence position you should learn different ways of a
tackle. A jab is used just to get the ball away from the opposition, simply jab the ball without coming in contact with the player or their stick. Swing tackling you have to contact the stick and the ball to also get the ball out of their possession but you dont have much control over where the ball goes.

Defence and tackle drill:

One player will control dribble in place. The other players Will try to knock the ball away from the dribbler using a jab tackle. Coaches need to watch for the proper form on the jab tackle. The key to a good. Tackle is timing it so the ball is between the stick handling, so the dribbler loses control of the ball.


Nutrients in meals
Before and after a hockey game its important to consume a meal high in carbohydrates. Foods with plenty of carbs in it include breads, bagels, rice, pasta, fruit, juice and vegetables. A planned meal that I would consume pre my match would be: - 1 bowel of pasta spaghetti bolognaise - 1 cup of fruit juice - 1 apple This meal contains the nutrients and carbohydrates I need to play a full hockey match. In the human body carbs help the muscle strengthen to perform all the skills such as bend down, run up the field fast and swing at the ball with full power to push it down the field. During the breaks you should have - Water - Powerade Water rehydrates you and powerade has electrolites that helps stop cramping and gives you energy. After the match you should eat protein such as a: - Steak - Eggs To replenish your muscle tissues that have been torn during the match. Also to get back the energy used in the match.
