2v1 Progressions: The Building Blocks of Team Attack2v1 Progressions: The Building Blocks of Team Attack
with Ainslee Lamb, Boston College Head Coach;
has served as the head coach for the U.S. National Team at the U17, U19 and U21 levels.

In this dynamic presentation, Boston College Head Coach Ainslee Lamb concentrates on the principles necessary to win 2v1 matchups. Using whiteboard explanations and on-field demonstration, Coach Lamb shares practice drills that cover the foundational skills needed to create and win 2v1 situations.

One of field hockey's most fundamental forms is the 2v1 contest. Beginning with simple ball-handling drills, Coach Lamb shares her offensive philosophy, which is built on sound foundational skills. By adding incremental progressions, she builds an aggressive offensive strategy that creates 2v1 offensive opportunities.

Coach Lamb offers a highly detailed explanation of the responsibilities of both the ball carrier and the off-ball player. She shares skills and theory that will enable offensive players to 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 ball-carrier skills:

  • Know your defender's position and intentions
  • Know your teammates' position
  • Identify the "dangerous space" that you and your teammate will use against the defense

The off-ball carrier has their own set of responsibilities. The importance of communication, vision, maintaining a presence in a passing lane as well as being positioned in the "dangerous space" are some of the core concepts of this 2v1 strategy. Considerable detail is provided so that all players will be able to develop their skills and understanding of field hockey, which will enable them to make better decisions and become a formidable offensive threat.

Coach Lamb begins every drill with the offensive player engaging the defender. The defender's 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 defender's inability to cover two offensive players. These same basic scenarios are presented from different field positions and from different angles of attack. Through these various presentations, Coach Lamb details a great deal of offensive direction and strategy. As she guides players through these drills, she constantly reinforces proper technique and challenges players to sharpen their awareness and react to the details the defender provides-details that are often overlooked by most offensive players

Most importantly, Coach Lamb shares a philosophy that players can apply to their on-field decision-making. This video will prove to be an invaluable tool to increase both players' and coaches' "Offensive Field Hockey IQ."

In this dynamic presentation, Boston College Head Coach Ainslee Lamb shares 11 drills for developing a shooting zone philosophy that considers not only the shooter but where the ball is coming from as well. Learn how to create shooting opportunities and develop a more sophisticated offense that's harder for goalies to make plays against by getting your shooter and passer working together.

Using whiteboard explanations and on-field demonstration, Coach Lamb explains the importance of creating a shooting zone. She also defines the expectations for each athlete when they are in the shooting zone and approaching it. In addition, she shares drills that cover a variety of game-like shooting situations. In this DVD, you'll learn:

  • the importance of creating a shooting zone and the expectations of players when they're in it
  • shooting opportunities developed from deflections
  • how to train players to score off 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 also covers the offensive strategies and expectations that guide the action of players when they attack from the top of circle as well as 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 to improve their shooting. Coach Lamb encourages awareness of each shooter's specific style so they can fine-tune their own development. She focuses on fundamentals like winding up to shoot the ball, adjusting footwork, creating momentum and torque and keeping the stick close to ball while preparing to shoot.

Coach Lamb provides enough detail and layers in each drill to provide value across all ages and skill levels. You'll discover something new every time you return to her DVD. 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 players at all levels improve their shooting ability.
