Goalkeeping Resources

Goalkeeping in Field Hockey – training, techniques, coaching and materials: Goalkeeping Manual


Junior/Basic Drills

  • The 49 illustrated Challenge Cards are designed to enable the coach to deliver core skills such as dribbling with the ball.
  • The top of the card gives a written explanation and illustration of the challenge as well as tips to remember.
  • The back of the card identifies teaching and safety points and ways to adapt the challenge.
  • This is called the STEP framework and has been created to help modify the challenges to be both harder or easier depending on skill level.

This gives the coach four methods of differentiation:

  1. S – Space: where the challenge takes place.
  2. T- Task: what is happening.
  3. E – Equipment: what is being used.
  4. P – People: who is involved. 

The number of cards allows the deliverer to be creative and develop their own sessions by mixing, matching and adjusting the exercises depending on the goals of the session.
