2v1 Progressions: The Building Blocks of Team Attack

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 are
  • Know where your team mate is
  • Identify 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."

Drills for Building a Shooting Zone Strategy

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.

Create a "shooting zone" philosophy that your players can apply to the decisions they make when shooting. Unlike most shooting instruction that focuses only on the shooter, Ainslee Lamb teaches you 11 drills that consider not only the shooter, but where ball is coming from.

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.
