  • Some of the defensive skills we will look at:

    - Fundamental tackling skills, everyone needs to know how the basics of how to tackle. We will refresh some of the basics so that you can start to use some of the more advanced defensive techniques

    - Shave tackling, an advanced defensive skill that you will often see used by those in the East Grinstead 1st team. It will enable you to tackle from unusual positions taking your opponent by surprise

    - Defending against lifted skills, with more and more Hockey players having the ability to beat people with lifted skills its important that we start to learn the best technique to defend against it

    - Reverse to reverse tackling, a new way to tackle a fast moving opponent that has only recently come into the game. Keep an eye out for England and East Grinstead forward Sophie Bray using this tackle

    - Gang tackles, we can all use a little help sometimes. Learn how to use your team mates to increase the chances of you winning the ball in the tackle

    The day will finish with gameplay so that all the skills learnt can be put into practice
