Indoor Masterclass 29th December 2013

Fantastic day of Indoor Hockey started with a fun U16 Tournament followed by a superb Masterclass delivered by fellow Centrally Contracted Coach Kwan Browne and completed with a fun Ladies & Mens Tournament played in great spirit.  Everyone enjoyed the day learning valuable hockey skills that translate very well to the astro.

Secure the ball

When we practice the fundamentals of the game it is necessary to do so in a decision rich environment this means that our drills need to be opposed. This enables the players to react to other players and form good decisions, the more mistakes we make the more we learn from those mistakes.

This is a very simple drill that can be done as a warm-up.
