    To emphasize these foundational aspects of shooting, Fuchs presents drills that direct player movement and correct common technique errors. For each shot you will learn when to use the shot, the grip, footwork, approach to the ball, where to strike the ball, and where to aim.

    The video will walk you from basic to advanced execution of the skill. Throughout the video, Coach Fuchs interlaces tips specific for teaching younger players the skill of shooting.

    The drills presented are efficient and clearly defined with specific expectations. By keeping the drills simple yet detailed in presentation, players can quickly be corrected when needed thereby building confidence with each additional repetition of a properly executed drill.

    with Matt Soto, Penn Manor (PA) High School Head Coach;
    2x State Champions; 4x State Finalist; over 500 career victories

    Two-time state champion Matt Soto presents drills and exercises designed specifically to strengthen the abilities a goalkeeper.

    Coach Soto has designed this progression of drills to continuously build the skills needed to perform the next drill in the series. By practicing these exercises and focusing on the details that Soto stresses, any goalie will improve their ability to keep the ball out of their net

    Using on-field demonstration, Coach Soto presents practice drills covering footwork, body positioning and stance that will help your keepers stop shots from various angles and heights. In this DVD you will learn:

    • Pre-practice warm up exercises
    • Lunging and diving techniques
    • Clearing drills
    • Defending against multiple shooters
    • 1 vs 1 breakaway techniques
    Practice is initiated with warm-ups structured to reinforce the goalie skill using correct footwork in an effort to properly position the goalie for lunging and stepping into the ball. Warm-ups start with players kicking the ball to each other. Correct foot position and striking the ball with a controlled, deliberate clearing kick is emphasized.

    Moving into shooting on goal, the tempo and skill set builds from simply stopping the ball to clearing the ball to a specific area of the field. Players are shown how to clear the ball after a shot and to direct the ball away from the center of the field to the outside of the shooting circle. Goalies who are able to master the techniques shown will effectively decrease their opponents scoring opportunities.

    Coach Soto introduces cones that the goalie must move through before stopping shots. This increases the challenge to the goalie and helps them build confidence in their footwork. Soon the drills develop to include shots from two shooters. The drill is structured to force the goalie to quickly move from one side of the net to the other.

    All of the drills shown are strictly defined as goalie drills, therefore all shooting is performed to build a goalie-specific skill.

    The drills continue to progress by using several players shooting from multiple spots on the field. The goalie must be able to quickly react to the ball, set in a good athletic stance and successfully clear the ball.

    Additionally, this DVD provides clearly defined instruction for defending against a break away and 1-on-1 situations.

    Whether you are a high school goal keeping coach, a parent helping your young athlete, or a goalkeeper taking charge of improving your skills, the drills in this video will teach you how to achieve your goals.

    with Matt Soto, Penn Manor (PA) High School Head Coach;
    2x State Champions; 4x State Finalist; over 500 career victories

    Matt Soto presents drills and exercises to strengthen your strikers' and midfielders' goal scoring abilities.

    Using on-field demonstrators, Coach Soto presents over 25 practice drills that will strengthen both individual skills and develop your team's ability to control the ball and create more goal scoring opportunities.

    Using his high school team, Soto shows how you can use basic skills like hits, pushes and aerial passes to get the ball to the attacking circle. He discusses important receiving skills and how to get the ball into an advantageous position for your attackers to score.

    Practice is initiated with simple passing and trapping techniques. These are used as warm-up exercises to prepare players for what will be a challenging, technique-driven practice.

    Each exercise builds on the last to further challenge your players' abilities. These carefully thought-out drills continue to develop until the players find themselves efficiently performing highly skilled ball handling drills in a game-like setting.

    Throughout these progressions players practice how to fake, double pull, reverse stick techniques, purposely getting the ball into the air, and a number of other advanced skills to help them become better ball handlers. The difficulty of the drills continues as players are expected to move the ball purposefully to advance it down the field in a specifically choreographed manner.

    Tipping drills will expose your players to advanced passing techniques that require the passer to "time" the runner as they move down the field together.

    A key advantage to this DVD is the impact it will have not only on your individual players, but on your whole offensive unit.

    The more advanced drills have the consistent element of getting a striker in position on the far side away from the goalie. By always working towards the far post, players develop their "field vision" and will find better positions on the field. The application of these drills in game situations provides the offense with confidence in knowing where their teammates positioning themselves. Therefore, these drills will provide increased scoring opportunities for the entire team.

    Each evolution of drills is presented with clear and well defined expectations that will challenge even experienced players to elevate their standards to meet a higher level of expectations. There are a number of drills described in the video that can be used by players in individual practice while others must be practiced in a group setting.

    This video has a wealth of drills you can use to develop your high school players into effective strikers and midfielders. The drill variations will keep your players engaged in working on and improving their skills.

    with Enza Steele, Lynchburg College Head Coach;
    15x Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) champions; 9x ODAC Coach of the Year; over 500 career wins; has led Lynchburg to 13 NCAA Tournament appearances

    Nine-time Old Dominion Athletic Conference Coach of the Year Enza Steele presents guidelines for developing well-structured, complete field hockey practice. Coach Steele takes you through a full practice, hitting all of the key areas you need to develop a successful team.

    Coach Steele highlights the importance of planning your practices to get the most out of the limited time you have with your players. She does a masterful job of walking you through the areas of her practice. Beginning with a smart board explanation and then on-field demonstrations, Steele presents a practice plan adaptable to any level of play.

    In this DVD, you will learn how to prepare and execute an efficient, purposeful practice covering the following skill sets:

    • Pre-practice warm up and team building exercises
    • Ball control using passing and receiving techniques
    • Goalie workouts using multiple offensive attacks
    • Defensive clearings
    Coach Steele presents a variety of offensive drills designed to prepare players for game situations and build skills. Throughout the drills players are consistently encouraged to focus on good ball control. Whether passing or receiving the ball, proper ball handling skills are a direct function of disciplined footwork and player positioning in reference to the ball.

    Once players can effectively control the ball, they are challenged to perfect longer, timed passes which in turn provides increased scoring opportunities from a wider variety of positions on the field. Each drill initiates with passing the ball and typically concludes with a shot on goal.

    Multiple fast-paced passing and shooting drills will provide your players with increased ball touches. Shooting on goal at the conclusion of the drills adds an important element that players work hard achieve. Players move through the drills focusing their efforts to end their drill in a goal. This additionally ensures the goalie will experience many different kinds of shots from different shooters.

    Conditioning and agility training are accomplished by using competitive activities that are fun for players and encourage team building. As players compete against each other, their fundamental field hockey skills can be evaluated and coached as they play. Players natural competitive nature ensures that they will enthusiastically participate in these well thought out exercises.

    These competitive activities and games will give you ideas on how to get your team in great game condition, as well as add some variety to your practices to make it more enjoyable for your players.

    The success enjoyed by Lynchburg College over the past 30 seasons can be attributed directly to the skills being taught to the players by Coach Steele and her dedication to the game.

    with Pam Bustin, Duke University Head Coach;
    2011 ACC Coach of the Year; 2011 Womensfieldhockey.com National Coach of the Year;
    Assistant Coach for the United States National Under 19 Team; former Assistant Coach for the US National Team at the 2008 Olympics; former University of Louisville Head Coach; 5x Big East/MAC Champions; 3x Big East/MAC Coach of the Year

    Pam Bustin shows you a competitive small games practice that is effective in isolating specific skills for players to develop under game conditions. Through small games competition you will learn how to challenge your player's fundamental skills using the following competitive drills:

    • 4 Goal Game
    • 3 v 3 Diagonal Attacking
    • 3 v 3 Diagonal Defending
    • 3 v 3 Half Court
    • 6 v 4 Continuous
    The 4 Goal Game forces players to quickly develop attack and defense awareness by limiting the playing area. Developing each player's vision is at the heart of this drill. By effectively creating game speed midfield play, passing accuracy, being able to see your target early, seeing lanes, scanning, pre-scanning for passes are some of the core fundamental skills that will be challenged and developed in this small-game drill.

    The 3v3 Diagonal small game drills are effective in creating game speed transition tempo. In a 3 v 3 format each team works to attack a goal in front of them as well as a goal to their right. Therefore each team is responsible for protecting a diagonal space and attacking a diagonal space. Since the space is limited, it is essential for players to develop the ability to quickly scan and pre-scan so that their first touch is on target. This drill will translate in improving your game performance in many key areas, including: tracking, long hit, side in possession, the ability to move the ball, and to keep possession and break out against a higher number of defenders.

    The 3v3 Half Court to goal drill utilizes the goalie as well as three attack and three defenders. One of the strengths of this drill is that it facilitates communication between the defenders and their goalie. Possession will alternate between each team thereby ensuring the goalie will be communicating with each group of players, as determined by possession. Transition, tipping, goalie communication as well as shooting on goal are some of the key development features of this drill.

    The Small Game Competition practice concludes with "6 v 4 Continuous" game. Using only half of the field this drill is intended to encourage offensive possession and strategies. For example this drill will help the attack to see where and how be in position to tip or get the ball off the defender. The offense can keep the ball speed up in order to shift the defense and create opportunities.

    Coach Bustin has done an outstanding job creating exercises that will challenge and build players skills at any level of Field Hockey.

    Duke's Pam Bustin presents the fundamental skills of field hockey and then challenges those skills in many different ways. In this DVD you will learn how to better prepare your players and challenge their basic skills through the following drills:

    • Flow Drill encompassing passing ball from varied points on field.
    • Influencing play through "1v1 Defensive Technique"
    • "Shots, Rebounds and Deflections" Ball control through passing and receiving techniques
    • Offensive progressions / Defensive progressions
    • 1v1 and 2v2 strategies
    Practice is initiated with the Flow Drill, a six position drill designed to work on various shooting and passing techniques from around the field. The drill develops into increased movement of both the passer and receiver encouraging the passer to be aware of their partner's location and direction of their movement. The fundamentals of redirecting passes, staying down on the play, stick work and foot work are all concepts challenged in this exercise. This drill concludes with Coach Bustin critiquing the actions taken and reinforcing the strategy she is trying to encourage and improving the experience of the drill by soliciting the player's feedback.

    The "1v1 Defensive Technique" section concentrates on the defenders skill to delay and influence the play through careful defensive techniques. Bustin shows you key concepts for challenging the offensive player through simple tips such as close quickly and breakdown when you trap, keeping your feet under your hips. Run to close and drop [step] to get under the ball carrier to challenge the offense from moving the ball.

    Using two players attacking the goal, the "Shots, Rebounds and Deflections Drill" shows how to position offensive players to receive passes, intercept the rebounds and score with deflections from passes originating from higher on the field. Focusing on play within the circle, this drill encourages increased movement in an effort to make something happen in front of the goal. Though this drill focuses on offensive movement, the defense also benefits from the challenge of defending against an offensive with an advantageous field position.

    Coach Bustin gives you a variety of drills designed to prepare your players for game situations and build upon foundational skills. Game speed shooting drills provide both offensive and defensive players with the opportunity to focus on their fundamental skills and challenge each other to a higher level of performance.

    with Beth Gottung, Montclair State University Head Coach; 2012 NCAA D-III National Runners-up; 4x NCAA D-III Tournament qualifier; 2x New Jersey Athletic Conference Coach of the Year; In 2012, Gottung's team outscored its opponents 82-16

    Beth Gottung teaches you drills that will inspire the competitive spirit of your team. Using white board explanations and on field demonstration, Coach Gottung presents practice drills that will challenge your players and improve their performance.

    The basic fundamentals of ball control, hitting, passing and receiving are all part of the drills, with the addition of competing with your teammates for reward or punishment that puts added pressure, by design on the players to simulate game like situations. In addition to simply presenting a series of drills that are structured to encourage competitiveness, Coach Gottung is able to continuously reinforce the basic skills that will build a better field hockey athlete.

    Starting with a warm up drill designed to get the players moving, "OUR HOUSE" is a possession game within a limited space and using limited number of athletes. This is a great starting point that begins players thinking about their specific skills. Defenders need to use good communication in order to force the ball away from the offense. The offense needs to concentrate on their passing and field position in an effort to maintain possession of the ball.

    To recreate the pressure of game speed shooting while at the same time encouraging each player to deliver 100% effort in ball handling and sprinting, Coach Gottung presents "Under Pressure Shooting and Fitness." This is an outstanding drill with built in motivation guaranteed to bring out your athletes maximum effort! This drill is easily scalable and can be customized to concentrate player's competitiveness where you as a coach feel they need it most.

    The "1v1 Lane" is one of those rare drills that will allow you to create the specific defensive situation needed to practice while still providing the game speed competitiveness your attack players need to continue developing their skill. By creating a defensive start that mimics a "re-defend" situation, coaches can help their athletes develop their skill of defending from a defensively disadvantaged position. Another problem that the re-defend often creates, are defensive penalties. Being able to focus your efforts on this specific setting will help defenders improve their body positioning and footwork so that they can defend successfully without drawing penalties.

    Coach Gottung highlights the importance of placing a high priority on your team's competitiveness during practices. She does a god job of highlighting the specifics skills that are needed for teams to be competitive within each of these drills. She demonstrates the importance of having each of these drills flow into each other with the skill taught in the previous drill becoming an important component in the successful execution of the upcoming drill.

    The drills that are demonstrated in this video will without a doubt improve the ability of your team to perform better under pressure in game situations.

    Most instructional DVD's for shooting concentrate only on the action of the shooter. Coach Lamb provides drills that include the action of the ball carrier prior to them passing to the shooter. In this way, players are able to experience and practice game-like shooting. When both players are working together to create shooting opportunities, they are able to develop a more sophisticated offense that is harder for goalies to make plays against.

    Using white board explanations and on field demonstration, Coach Lamb explains the importance of establishing a shooting zone and defines what the expectations are for each athlete when in the shooting zone and approaching the shooting zone. You'll then learn drills that cover a variety of game like shooting situations. In this DVD you will learn:

    • The importance of establishing a shooting zone, and what the expectations are when in the shooting zone.
    • Shooting opportunities developed from deflections
    • How to train your players to score off of rebounds
    • How to use reverse stick, sweeps and traps to control the ball and create shooting opportunities
    • To utilize back space from defensive positions to score
    Coach Lamb covers the offensive strategies and expectations to guide the action of players when they attack top of circle, how they can execute early and develop the timing they need to be a serious offensive threat.

    Listen in as players are given detailed tips that will improve their shooting. Coach Lamb encourages awareness to each shooter's specific style so that each athlete can fine tune their own development. Focusing on fundamentals such as where they need to start winding up to shoot the ball, how to adjust their footwork, creating momentum and torque as well as when to keep their stick close to ball while preparing to shoot are just some of the skills asked of players to challenge themselves on improving.

    Coach Lamb provides you with enough detail and layers in each drill that it will be of value across all ages and skill levels and something that you can keep coming back to and finding new things. By practicing the details specific to each shot and then building a progressive drill that allows the athlete to see where each shot is most effective, you get a comprehensive instructional DVD that will help player at any level improve their shooting ability.

    FHD-04389A: with Ainslee Lamb, Boston College Head Coach;
    has served as the head coach for the US National Team at the U17, U19 and U21 levels.

    Boston College Head Coach Ainslee Lamb concentrates on the principles necessary to win 2v1 match ups. Using white board explanations and on field demonstration, Coach Lamb presents practice drills covering the foundational skills needed to create and win 2v1 situations.

    One of field hockey's most fundamental forms is the 2v1 contests. Beginning with simple ball handling drills, Coach Lamb clearly defines a strong foundation to define an offensive philosophy. By adding incremental progressions, Lamb builds an aggressive offensive strategy that creates 2v1 offensive opportunities.

    Coach Lamb skillfully details the responsibilities of both the ball carrier and the off-ball player. She delivers skills and theory that will serve as the foundation from which the offensive players can effectively exploit the 2v1 game. Beginning with basic concepts and progressing through detailed offensive strategies, your players will quickly develop into an efficient and purposed offensive team. At the heart of being able to master the 2v1 game are these three essential skills for the ball carrier:

      Know where the defender is and what their intentions areKnow where your team mate isIdentify the Dangerous Space that you and you teammate will use against the defense
    The off-ball carrier has their own set of responsibilities. The importance of communication, vision, maintaining their presences in a passing lane as well as being positioned in "dangerous space" are some of the core concepts that this 2v1 strategy depend upon. Considerable detail is provided so that any player, at any skill level, will be able to develop their skill and understanding of field hockey so that they will be able to make better decisions and become a formidable offensive threat.

    Coach Lamb begins every drill with the offensive player engaging the defender. The defenders reaction drives the decision of the offense. By forcing the defender to react to the ball carrier, the off-ball player exploits the weakness of the defenders inability to cover two offensive players. These same basic scenarios are presented from different positions on the field and from different angles of attack. Through these various presentations, Lamb details a great deal of offensive direction and strategy. As she guides players through these drills, she is constantly reinforcing proper technique and challenging players to sharpen their awareness and react to the details the defender provides that are often overlooked by most offensive players

    Most importantly, Coach Lamb creates a philosophy that players can apply to the decisions they make on the field. This DVD will prove to be an invaluable tool to increase both the players and coaches "Offensive Field Hockey IQ."

    featuring Beth Bozman,
    former Duke University Head Coach,
    member of the NFHCA Hall of Fame (2008),
    led Duke to four consecutive Final Fours from 2003-06,
    finishing as the national runner-up in three of those occasions (2003-05),
    has over 300 career victories!

    Step onto the field with this All-Access inside look into Beth Bozman's Duke Field Hockey Team as she welcomes you to a series of three practices where you get to see all the workings of a championship program. The emphasis and activities of each practice change as the team work's their way through the week and comes closer to a weekend of games.

    In the first practice, Bozman's team has just come off two games over the weekend followed by a off-day, so Bozman leads them through a more vigorous practice aimed at conditioning and skill work. Jeff Houser, the speed and agility coach at Duke (and a former Olympian), starts the practice with an anerobic threshold conditioning workout, which builds up the players' staminia.

    Next, Bozman switches to skill work, running a 3-station ball support drill, passing, and shooting drills that incorporate a ball lift to develop soft hands on the receiving end before the shot. Moving to defense, Bozman runs a defense drill that reinforces pushing the attacker to the hash marks, which will give the defense a chance to recover and organize. The drill starts 1v1, then moves to 2v2 allowing the defense to work on reading the lead attack player. You will hear Bozman pass along coaching tips and strategies for the defense, as well as for the offense that will lead to corner opportunities.

    Bozman runs a 3v2 No Touch game reinforcing tracking skills and getting to the low defender as quick as possible. The goal is to develop sharp passing combinations to isolate the defense and create more 2-on-1 situations in games.

    A skeleton passing drill closes practice. This drill sharpens cutting patterns and ball pace.

    In the second practice, the team is led through more team drills that incorporate game play into the practice. This prepares the players for games both physically and mentally. The practice features drills for ball movement, circle defense and the press.

    Day two's passing and shooting skill work includes a 5-Man Passing drill that focuses on backing away, covering passing lanes and scoring when the numbers are in your favor. A weave and shoot drill works on spacing and getting a number of shots in a short amount of time.

    Moving on to defense, Bozman runs a defense and recovery drill that will help your defense slow down the attack in the circle and, by using the body, defend a space that will force the attack outside.

    Bozman shows her Fall Away Press, where you will see the importance of moving on the front end of the pass, so that you don't lose your chance to step up and press.

    Bozman's third practice is the final practice before departing for games. She lowers the intensity and places the emphasis on preparing for the upcoming games. Drills during this practice are specifically tailored to mimic schemes that opponents run so Bozman's squad is prepared to face them on game day.

    Grid passing helps with fading off the pass, using soft hands and keeping the passes flat. Warm-up shooting, redirection passing, long hit and skeleton passing keying on fakes are a sampling of the skills that Bozman drills.

    With this inside look into Duke Field Hockey, you will be able to prepare your team for games like Hall of Fame Coach Beth Bozman does!

    These practices were conducted following the opening week of the season, which will give you a good feel for how to structure the opening prcatices of your season.

    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 to develop a sharper, quicker, more efficient goalkeeper. Coach Cota covers the following concepts:

    • a progression of dynamic footwork movement
    • a progression of dynamic movement, right and left hand with stick and glove
    • a progression of dynamic movement, right hand stick
    • leg guard drills with progression to slide
    • rapid fire shots all directions
    • goalkeepers' stance

    The presentation begins with stretching and warm-ups for the entire team. A quick review of goalkeeping techniques gives 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 goalkeeper's stance and the importance of executing it correctly. The stance is explained so that goalkeepers can achieve explosive energy when making saves. This gives players the ability to clear the ball after the save, which effectively eliminates the opportunity for rebound shots. Employing the philosophy of clearing the ball on each save is a key component to being a successful goalkeeper.

    Proper footwork is key to making saves and clearing the ball. Coach Cota provides detailed instruction beginning with the stationary stance and concluding with the correct technique 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 workout progresses to reactionary saves. With quick passes, the point of attack may change which means the goalkeeper must adjust with quick, sharp moves and not be caught out of position. Coach Cota challenges goalkeepers 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 goal-tending techniques that builds upon the basics, this presentation explains how and why a given movement is best suited for a specific shot.

    This presentation gives a wealth of information to train someone who, on many occasions, is the last player left to defend the goal.

    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 present a practice package that is loaded with ball control drills that can be used by athletes on their own or incorporated into a team practice . These drills will make players confident ball handlers. Coaches Tara and Steve Danielson concentrate on hand and footwork development using the following drills:

    • stationary hand and stick drills intended as a warm-up
    • a progression of stationary drills adding movement and footwork
    • five-meter drills
    • seven cone drills using a bigger area
    • partner drills

    The presentation begins with comprehensive, dynamic team stretching and warm-up exercises. These exercises are presented with enough detail that a coach can easily add them to their program.

    Hand skill development begins with a 10-minute warm-up routine. Using four simple techniques, this drill increases confidence and ability in ball handling. The segment includes a "fast hands" exercise, which is simply moving the ball as quickly as possible from the left to right, touching the ball as quickly as possible to change its direction as efficiently as possible. The exercise continues by adding more space to the movement of the ball, moving it from foot to foot, concentrating on ball control. Quick lifts and air dribbles complete the hand skill warm-ups.

    The fundamentals are combined with footwork and shooting to create progressive drills that challenge a player's dexterity and fitness. By focusing on basic movements, a coach can easily correct a player's movements, which, in turn, ensures that the player will develop strong foundational skills. Players are encouraged to start slowly and then advance to game speed, which also ensures correct execution of the technique. Beginning with basic movements, the presentation quickly progresses to a high-tempo skills drill.

    In addition to providing foundational strength for individual field hockey skills, this video gives coaches and players a template for building drills that can be customized to the needs of each player. Once an athlete has learned the basics of the game, this video will help them take their performance to the next level.

    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 that uses sharp moves and quick passes to play fast-paced, attacking hockey. Improve ball-handling confidence as well as hand and footwork with drills like:

    • passing patterns to goal, including skip passing
    • attack and defensive build-up
    • small game scenarios
    • counter attack options (3v3 possessions)
    • large game scenarios

    This natural progression from individual to team skills helps to refine what players already know.

    The video opens with a series of comprehensive, dynamic team stretching and warm-up exercises. These exercises are presented with enough detail that a coach can easily add them to their program.

    Stanford works from the philosophy of "Fail Forward and Succeed." To illustrate how this philosophy is out into practice, this video includes a high-tempo, quick-paced training session . Limiting the amount of time spent on each exercise increases repetitions and encourages 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. The "high-tempo" skills carry forward throughout the practice session, forming the foundation for a fast-paced, game-speed practice.

    Practice begins with passing patterns to goal, emphasizing basic skill execution for passing and shooting, including proper stance, body position, and correctly receiving and delivering the ball in a "high-tempo" format. Drills progress from stationary passing to passing to a ball receiver who is on the move, working on leading away from the passer when receiving the pass. In each case, the passer needs to perform 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's 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 effort to find open space and succeed in moving the ball downfield. Reinforcing basic concepts, the Stanford coaches deliver valuable tips that can be applied to any level of play.

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

    Coaches Steve and Tara Danielson share several drills that can be easily implement into any practice session. This is a must-have DVD for any coach who wants to see immediate improvement and results.

    with Enza Steele, Lynchburg College Head Coach;
    17x Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) champions; 10x ODAC Coach of the Year; over 500 college career wins;
    has led Lynchburg to 18 NCAA Tournament appearances including several trips to the Elite Eight, Final Four, and National Championship game.

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

    • Goalkeeping - Agility, reaction time and decision-making skills
    • Continuous Shooting - Quick, 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 shares an effective blueprint for developing your own drills. Her drills follow a four-stage progression: execution of proper technique, combining multiple skills, adding more players, and using critical thinking skills to make decisions. Using this multi-stage, build-up progression, Coach Steele demonstrates a series of drills that will help you improve all areas of your team's defense.

    Goalkeeping
    Using nine drills that focus on building agility and footwork while combining a variety of shooting scenarios, Coach Steele covers the essential skills of successful goalkeeping. Drills focus on proper positioning, efficient movement across the goal (arcing, angles and drop steps), kick saves, clearing and hand positioning. Goalkeepers of all skill levels will be able to improve their technique with Coach Steele's detailed instruction.

    Continuous Shooting
    To develop quick, spontaneous shooting in practice that simulates a high tempo offensive opponent, Coach Steele shares six effective drills designed to allow the attack to 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. Use this drill to develop hand-eye coordination, work on transition skills, footwork, elimination skills and more.

    These drills and exercises will provide less experienced players with a solid foundation from which to build upon. More experienced players will also benefit by using the details that Coach Steele explains throughout the entire presentation.
