Attack 3 on 1
This next drill can assist in emphasizing the “open” player that they may not grasp in the 2 vs 1 initially. It is important to start with the 2 vs 1 and then move onto this if they do not grasp it as when you go back to the 2vs 1 again it will make more sense!
1. Three attackers start with the ball from one end line of the Mini-Hockey field, but now they must overcome a defender before penetrating into the area to score a goal in one of the two goal areas. Here the attackers learn to
The team that scores the highest number of goals within five attacks is the winner. An attack is broken
After five attacks, the teams switch places, and one of the former attackers can be defender.
Move back to a 2vs 1 and then move onto the next drill
2. Now adjust so that the three attackers play against one defender and a goalkeeper who has to defend both goals.
3. A second defender stands 6 to 8 meters behind the three attackers or 6 meters away from any side line of the Mini-Hockey field. When the attackers start from the end line, the second defender runs into the field to help his fellow defender in the opposite shooting zone stop the attack.
If the attack is carried out without speed, the 3 on 1 turns into a 3-on-2-situation because the slower action allows the second defender into the play. The attack must be carried out with high speed to maintain the advantage.
