    with Leslie LaFronz,
    Kean University Head Coach;
    2016 and 2017 NJAC Coach of the Year;
    19 regular season wings, top seed in the NJAC Tournament and first-ever bid to the NCAA Tournament in 2017

    In this video, Kean University head coach Leslie LaFronz provides the framework to address the key defensive tactics and strategies that have the greatest impact on game outcomes. This includes helping players recognize various defensive situations (1v1, 2v1, or 3v2), understand how their location on the field impacts their defensive approach, and recognize tough defensive situations and the specific actions required to get the ball out of high percentage scoring zones.

    Defensive Drill Progressions

    In the 1v1 and 2v1 drills, LaFronz shows how to teach players to become stronger defenders by:

    • Slowing down the attack through smart positioning and patience
    • Gaining an advantage by turning a 2v1 into a 1v1
    • Improving jab tackles through the use of proper defensive grip and an athletic stance
    • Forcing the ball to the defender's strong side and using correct block tackle technique to increase turnovers

    In 3v2 drills, LaFronz shows how defenders can work in tandem to get the advantage in critical "numbers down" situations within the defensive circle. You'll learn how to stress accountability and quick decision-making to slow down the attack as one defender steps up to apply hard pressure on the ball and one defender provides cover. Additionally, LaFronz shows how to improve continuity of defensive pressure with clear communication when facing quickly-changing points of attack.

    High pressure situations must be controlled by your team by working together to force the ball to the defender's stick side to increase opportunities for quality tackles and pass interceptions. LaFronz covers this crucial skill, as well as how to be more successful in forcing the ball to outside zones (away from goal) by teaching players to be disciplined in maintaining balanced defensive positioning.

    Coach LaFronz provides several helpful defensive positioning illustrations as well as diagrams of zones within the defensive circle and scoring gate areas that can be used during practice sessions. This video shows the full set of defensive progression drills in action with Kean University players, including LaFronz's direct feedback to players. After watching this video, you will understand when to pressure the ball, when/where to force the ball, and the correct approach to block tackling.

    featuring Shiv Jagday,
    FIH accredited coach;
    former Canadian and USA national team coach, coaching national teams in the Olympic Games, World Cups and the Pan Am Games

    In recent years, field hockey has become more and more of a power game. As such, some of the subtlety and beauty has gone out of the game. In this video, you'll learn how to recapture that beauty as Shiv Jagday zeros in on some overlooked skills and ideas that can raise your players to the next level.

    Coach Jagday gives you fundamental offensive strategies and tactics, based upon proven principles. These principles are illustrated with specific game situation examples taken from the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympic Games, plus other international tournaments. You will clearly see the rewards when these principles are honored diligently, as well as the penalties when they are not.

    The Theory of the Game

    Hockey is a simple game. But, the number of tactics and strategies is almost endless. Coach Jagday begins by revealing the core offensive principles that you need to focus on to win more games. In this section, you will learn about:

    • The importance of shape when attacking
    • The importance of space awareness when attacking
    • The Seven Laws of the Game
    • Types of attacks you can run
    • How to anticipate various defensive strategies

    The Importance of Footwork and Stance

    Players from the Punjab Institute of Sport demonstrate how to pass and receive the ball correctly in the midfield triangle. Jagday emphasizes the importance of correct footwork and stance to the performance of fundamental skills while demonstrating how to give precise corrective feedback to athletes.

    To this midfield triangle, Jagday progressively adds more players while focusing on the basics of footwork and stance, as well of the core attacking principles of width, depth, support and penetration. He also shows how to use opposition to a drill to add an element of pressure.

    Game Sense and How to Coach It

    You'll learn how to use mini games to develop game sense and teach complex ideas. Jagday shows how to use simple games like 3v1, 3v2, 4v2, 4v3 and 4v4 to improve your players' ability to read the play in front of them and develop effective patterns of play.

    He stresses the importance of:

    • Scanning to see the forward passes before the ball arrives
    • Correct leading patterns and timing to make the most of the attacking space
    • Giving early penetrating passes

    Space Awareness

    Coach Jagday demonstrates the importance of space awareness to effectively exploit defenses. He uses a 5v1 situation to teach the power of overlapping and freezing up defenders in 2v1 situations to create quick attacks.

    Teams Within Teams

    You'll see Coach Jagday use a coaching board to walk you through the mini teams within a field hockey team and the roles and responsibilities of:

    • The back four
    • The midfield triangle
    • The forwards
    • The right and left side triangles

    You will also learn how to build various types of attack and how to manipulate defenses to create attacking opportunities.

    As Coach Jagday says, "little things make big things happens." This video will show you how to make more big things happen by zeroing in on the little things that are often overlooked.

    with Maureen Ordnung,
    Ithaca College Assistant Coach;
    2015 Empire 8 Conference Coaching Staff of the Year;
    2x All Conference Goalkeeper at East Stroudsburg University

    As field hockey continues to evolve, the challenges keepers face keep getting harder and harder. The strikers are faster, more aggressive, and hit harder than ever before. All this means less time for keepers to react. In this video, Maureen Ordnung shows how to equip your keeper with the physical and mental skills needed to face those challenges bravely and react intelligently.

    The Theory of Keeping

    Many people think keeping is simple - see the ball, stop the ball. But any keeper will tell you that's not true. Keeping is a specialized role, and one that many coaches who come from the field just don't feel equipped to coach well. As a result, their teams 'leak' too many goals and their keepers feel left out of practices that don't meet their needs.

    Coach Ordnung shows how to break this cycle and teach keepers:

    • Footwork patterns for maximum efficiency in the circle.
    • To position themselves properly to find the line of the shot and then apply pressure on the shooter.
    • To identify space for safe clearances.

    Using All the Tools

    Ordnung shows you how to save and clear shots with kickers, pads, gloves, and sticks, and, as importantly, when to use each piece of equipment. No longer will your keeper be unsure if they should (or could) use their feet to make a save. No longer will your keeper lunge with their kicker when they should dive. Your keepers will have the confidence to pick off a flick into the corner with their stick instead of flailing with their glove.

    The Importance of Aggression for a Keeper

    Learn how to train your keepers to stay aggressive and communicate effectively. Ordnung presents a two-keeper, two-player drill designed to make strikers fear your keeper. This drill gets a keeper out of their cage to put pressure on ball carriers. In this beautifully simple drill, all the skills Ordnung emphasizes in the video are brought to life in a fun and challenging situation. Keepers and players will love it - and learn at the same time.

    You'll also see Ordnung give practical advice on various coaching aids and how to use them. She demonstrates how to use paper plates, cones, and marker dots as visual cues to help your keepers learn proper positioning and shows how to use string to teach the concept of angles.

    In clear and direct terms, Coach Ordnung gives you everything you need to increase the skill and confidence of your keepers and improve results immediately!

    with Leslie LaFronz,
    Kean University Head Coach;
    2016 and 2017 NJAC Coach of the Year;
    19 regular season wings, top seed in the NJAC Tournament and first-ever bid to the NCAA Tournament in 2017

    In this video, Kean University head coach Leslie LaFronz explains the main goals of a baseline attack and why this strategy can be so successful. LaFronz shows how the baseline attack strategy works by using crisp "in and out" passing to lure defenders out of position.

    You'll teach your attackers to focus on quality passing and well-timed cuts to get the ball to the baseline in order to flatten the defense and create shooting opportunities at the top of the circle. Statistics show this is the area where most goals originate. LaFronz explains that shooting gate strikers aiming for the opposite post have the greatest amount of open area in goal, and teammates have more time to get in position for deflections and rebounds.

    Baseline Attack Drill Progressions

    Defensive players are taught to defend traditional offenses that attack down the center. Coach LaFronz gives a detailed chalk talk about baseline attacking which exploit this inherent defensive weakness and lead to more passing lanes and scoring opportunities.

    You'll see four attack drill progressions:

    Baseline Attack 4 v 0

    • Establishes workable cutting and passing patterns
    • Improves timing of passes and cuts
    • Enhances success on the baseline by using correct positioning to receive the ball

    Baseline Attack 4v2

    • Improves "in and out" passing with more pressure on the ball
    • Succeeds in finding the open passing lanes to the shooting gate area
    • Refines passing patterns and the timing of passes and cuts

    Baseline Attack 4v3

    • Improves communication (verbal and nonverbal) when facing greater defensive pressure
    • Increases the effectiveness of baseline cuts by focusing on receiving the ball within the circle
    • Enhances confidence and composure as players learn to be patient and "not force a play"

    Baseline Attack 8v5

    • Creates more scoring opportunities by transferring the ball to the opposite side when no shot is available
    • Enhances awareness of player positioning and how it positively or negatively impacts scoring
    • Improves decision making under pressure to take advantage of unexpected open lanes to goal

    Coach LaFronz explains the baseline attack, shares useful statistics that support the baseline attack strategy and then teaches you what to do based on how the defense reacts - a great resource for coaches at all levels!

    with Shiv Jagday, FIH accredited coach;
    former Canadian and USA national team coach, coaching national teams in the Olympic Games, World Cups and the Pan Am Games

    Improve your team's competitiveness using first touch techniques from former Canadian and USA national team coach Shiv Jagday. You'll learn how to control the ball and force defenders to react to your actions instead of influencing them.

    An effective "first touch" of the ball often times ensures successful passing and receiving, ball movement, advancement of the ball and success when facing the defense.

    Coach Jagday spends minimal time on individual drills, preferring to work on improving first touch skills within game-like situations. He expertly divides the field and player positions into interlocking, triangular groups of three. From this format, players practice passing and receiving, and build plays for moving the ball down field. As players progress, Jagday increases the space between players thereby challenging their ability and better simulating game situations.

    After covering the basics, Coach Jagday discusses how to receive a pass under pressure and draw or entice a defender, then make a pass to the overlapping teammate within the appropriate triangle of players. He demonstrates how focusing on individual technique and delaying a pass, allows the receiver to adjust the leading angles and prepares them to make the next positive move.

    The best field hockey players in the world use their first touch to create time and space and to place the defender at a disadvantage. Coach Jagday's first touch techniques and his strategy for dividing the playing field will improve your team's first touch skills and ultimately their level of competitiveness.

    I feel that the content of these video provides very valuable information for the coaches of young and developing hockey players in some very core skill areas. They provide not only excellent technical information but also valuable guidelines for coaches on how to develop various skills in their players.

    I recommend these videos to any coach or player who wants to learn more about skill development in hockey and improving themselves."
    Barry Dancer, FIH Master Coach, Coach of the Australian Men's National Team, which won its first - and only - Olympic Gold Medal at the 2004 Athens Games, under his guidance.
