2x New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Coach of the Year

Two time NESCAC Coach of the Year Tina McDavitt demonstrates drills you can use to develop skilled, effective players on the offensive end of the field.

Passing, receiving, and positioning are just some of the improvement areas targeted in this DVD. Throughout the drills, Coach McDavitt shares insights into the drill and how she successfully coaches her team. These offense-based drills include defenders to pressure the offense, put players in competitive situations and to keep players busy during practice.

Coach McDavitt's drills will show you how to:

  • Move the ball quickly and accurately into the circle and eliminate mistakes in this area during matches.
  • Use overload situations in attack and stay away from less effective one-on-one situations.
  • Slow down the attack (as a defender) to let the defense catch up and help.
  • Be patient when looking to outlet and transition, teach the defenders to hold the ball or transition to the other side to create some space.
  • Teach your players to position themselves to be a positive passing option for the ball carrier
  • And more!

McDavitt shows you how to set-up and run the drills on the whiteboard, then takes her players through each drill in a full speed, live practice setting so you can see how to execute the drills and run variations of them.

This video is a great tool for coaches at both the middle school and high school levels, and will help build your players confidence on the offensive end of the field.

FHD-04023B: with Tina McDavitt,
Tufts University Head Coach;
led Tufts to 5 straight NCAA Tournaments, including the 2008 National Championship Game;
2x New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Coach of the Year

Build your team's defense with Tina McDavitt's proven-successful strategies and drills. In this video Coach McDavitt shares the defensive strategies she uses for her team and the drills she uses to develop her players and to effectively implement her defensive strategy.

Coach McDavitt teaches and demonstrates:

  • Defensive Strategies using Diamond and Triangle Defense. The Diamond Defense is difficult for attackers to penetrate, as the defending team is covering most angles.
  • The importance of getting numbers behind the ball. When under attack, your team must gain possession. You can do so by dropping back and helping defenders to win the ball.
  • Drills to force attackers toward less dangerous space and to tackle the ball carrier.
  • When to mark man-to-man vs zonal defense and when to use a combination of the two.

McDavitt gives a detailed explanation of each drill utilizing marker board diagrams and on-field demonstrations.

The tactics and strategies she describes are very effective, and can be used by coaches for their college, club or a mature high school team. In addition, players can use this video to understand the team and individual defensive skills needed to be successful.

Strategy can only be effective if the players have good basic skills, so McDavitt covers the fundamental skills and how every defender can practice.

These drills and strategies will give your team the tools to create a stingy, 'hard-to-penetrate' defense!

Stick Work Progressions for Field Hockey
with Jan Trapp,
Messiah College Head Coach; over 500 career victories;
2010 NCAA Division III National runner-up; 10x MAC Conference Coach of the Year;
Featuring the Messiah College Coaching Staff

Jan Trapp and the Messiah College staff take you through the techniques and drills for teaching and developing proper stick work. Coach Trapp has won over 500 games in her career at Messiah and her teams have been invited to the NCAA tournament over 20 times with 14 of those teams reaching the Final Four.

Coach Trapp's drills begin with basic principles and build up to more advanced principles. The DVD begins with stationary stick work drills involving the ready position concentrating on footwork and balance - the keys to good stickwork.

Trapp slowly adds movement to the drills combining ball handling, footwork, passing with spin, slip, flop, pull back and lift techniques. The progression ends with shots out of the movements. Each drill trains the players to keep their body and sticks low to ensure consistent ball control. These drills will help your athletes build speed and quickness while carrying the ball down the field and to put more drive behind their shot.

Building on the ball control drills, the staff demonstrates drills to improve passing and receiving skills while on the move. This segment includes a 2-on-0 drill to develop ball control, passing and receiving skills and a five-point drill for receiving passes on the move from a longer distance. These drills reinforce low body position, soft hands, passing accuracy and timing. Using these drills, your players will learn to cut to get open and receive a pass with pressure or get practice intercepting passes.

All of the skills taught throughout the video culminate in a 3-on-2, 2-on-1 drill that simulates game action.

This comprehensive DVD will provide you with the tools you need to bring out the best in your athletes' ball control skills!

Goal Scoring Skills & Drills for Field Hockey
with Tjerk Van Herwaarden,
Harvard University Head Coach;
former University of Maryland Technical Director/Coach;
2011 & 2010 Back-to-Back National Champions;

Helped lead Maryland to four national championships in five years (2005-10); USA Men's National team assistant coach (2009 Pan American Games silver medalists), Coached current World and Olympic Champions during his tenure in the Netherlands; owner and co-founder of World Camp USA.

National championship coach Tjerk van Herwaarden demonstrates more than 10 simple exercises that focus on improving the power, accuracy and quickness of your shot.

van Herwaarden teaches effective scoring skills that can be used in a variety of game situations:

  • Shooting off of a move
  • Shooting off of a pass while facing the goal
  • Shooting off of a pass with your back to the goal
  • One touch scoring
  • Scoring close to the goal

Starting at the top of the circle, van Herwaarden focuses demonstrates how to execute the basic shot and the reverse shot. The reverse shot is an important skill for every player as it is difficult for the keeper to track and makes it difficult to defend the attacker. Another area of focus in these drills is the ability to take the ball away from the defense to create space for a shot.

Since a majority of the goals scored in field hockey happen close to the goal, van Herwaarden demonstrates a number of combination scoring drills to fine tune your one touch scoring skills. These drills work on scoring with limited time and space, rebound shots with no back swing, shots off deflections and more.

Throughout the DVD, van Herwaarden demonstrates how to correct the common errors that rob your players of power and accuracy on their shots.

These proven drills are done regularly in Maryland's practices leading to four trips to the NCAA finals in five years. Incorporate them into your practice today!

Coach Missy Meharg's concept is based on setting the field hockey field up as a grid. This is done for three reasons; for teaching, statistics and ball patterns. Coach Meharg divides the field into four areas: the attack quarter of the field, attacking middie quarter, defensive middie quarter and the defensive quarter. From there the field is divided vertically into zones 1, 2 and 3, with 3 being the outside areas. The same concept goes for the area around the goal for goalkeepers. To aid visual learners, Meharg uses a Subbuteo board to divide the field visually and to show each of the steps in detail. The eight steps begin with defense in the attacking quarter, followed by defense in the midfield and into the circle. Step 4 deals with defensive penalty corners. Step 5 and 6 focus on attack out of the defensive quarter and attacking in the midfield. The final two steps are the attack into the circle and attacking penalty corners. Each step is carefully broken down and analyzed by Meharg. Finally, the use of actual game video shared in this excellent instructional DVD allows you to see game applications of this strategic 8-step plan.
