Defense

  • The basics:

    • Man to Man

    • Zone

    • Man Down


Defensive Constants

  • Communication

  • Footwork

  • Body Position

  • Poke checks

  • “V-Hold”

  • Goalie Talk


Man to Man

  • Call out the number of the man you are covering, then cover your assigned opponent.

  • Communicate to your teammates, and listen to the information they provide

  • Stick topside! Nobody can score from behind the goal.

  • Lockoff’s and Press Play are specialties.


Man to Man


Zone

  • Many types, so as coach you decide what you will use – see DVD of Zone Defense.

  • Communication is huge to pass off opponents between different sectors!

  • Cover high-threat areas.


Generic Zone


Man Down

  • Basic “Box and One”

  • Keep it tight

  • Communicate!


Rides

  • Man to Man (man down, defense has goalie)

    • Force the long pass

  • Zone

    • Communication to pass of opponents from zone to zone

  • Hard

    • Hard press ride for tight game situations


Clears

  • Endline – Defense or Goalie takes it

  • Sideline – Middie takes it

  • “400” – Middie takes an endline clear in special circumstances.

Stickwork Drill

  • Assumes everyone can catch/pass left/right

  • Start slow then pick up the pace

  • Add more balls, try to get 6 balls going at once

  • Plenty of touches in about 7-10 minutes

  • In addition to basic catching and passing

    • Simulates pushing the ball upfield

    • Being vocal

    • More balls create more confusion (clarity amid chaos)

    • Short sticks and long sticks, even goalie, in same drill

    • End running full speed

    • If there is an overthrow, there are several other balls in play

    • Little rest between throws


Coaches Goals

  • Initial

    • Teach Ball Drills

    • Instruct all players how to catch, throw, switch hands, and scoop properly

    • Give extra attention to less experienced players during the drill

    • Keep the drill moving – Coaches keep one extra ball to keep drill moving

    • Learn all players names – must know all names by second practice

    • Constantly identify players by first/last name until you have them memorized

    • Be instructive but constantly be upbeat and encouraging


Coaches Goals (Cont’d)

  • Intermediate

    • Prove how much of ball drill sequence is remembered

    • Improve stickwork

    • Get numerous successful catches and passes at each step within the drill

    • Introduce Ground Ball Drill – “Ball Down”, “Ball”, and “Release”

    • Elements of a “Good Shot”

      • Less than 10 yards from the goal

      • Momentum toward the crease

      • Overhand Shot on the run

      • Shoot as hard as you can (Power) under control (Placement) everytime

      • Bounce shot when possible

    • Conditioning

    • Incorporate coherent plays based off your players strengths


Coaches Goals (Cont’d)

  • Advanced

    • Always work on keeping up the basics (the beginning of practice should be rote, but with few if any dropped passes)

    • Incorporate advanced plays, zone defenses, and clears

    • Work on developing “field sense” including using players who have it already or naturally to step up and lead their lines.

    • Focus on “whole team dynamic”
