Stanford Coaches Tara and Steve Danielson present a practice package that is loaded with ball control drills that can be used by athletes on their own or incorporated into a team practice by a coach. Using these drills, players will develop into confident ball handlers. Coaches Tara and Steve Danielson concentrate on hand and footwork development using the following drills:
The DVD begins with comprehensive team dynamic stretching and warm-ups. The dynamic stretching is presented with enough detail so that a coach can easily add this efficient warm-up method into their program.
Hand skill development initiates with a ten minute warm-up routine. Using four simple techniques, this drill will increase your confidence and ability in ball handling. Exercising, "fast hands," which is simply moving the ball as quick as possible from the left to right, touching the ball as quickly as possible to simply change its direction as efficiently as possible. Then, adding more space to the movement of the ball, moving it from foot to foot, concentrating on ball control. Quick lifts and air dribbles finish the hand skill warm ups.
Adding footwork and shooting, these fundamentals are combined to create progressive drills that will challenge a player's dexterity and fitness. Focusing on basic movements allows players to be easily corrected and build strong foundational skills. Players are encouraged to start slowly in an effort to correctly execute techniques then advance to game speed. Beginning with basic movements, this DVD quickly progresses into a high tempo skills drill.
In addition to providing foundational strength for individual field hockey skills, this DVD provides coaches and players alike a template to build drills that can be easily customized to accommodate the needs of each player. Once an athlete has learned the basics of the game this video can help them take their game to the next level.
