    2015 NCAA Semifinalists, 2013 NCAA National Runners-Up;
    2011 ACC Coach of the Year; 2011 Womensfieldhockey.com National Coach of the Year;
    Assistant Coach for the United States National Under 19 and Under 21 teams; Assistant Coach for the U.S. National Team at the 2008 Olympics; former University of Louisville Head Coach; 5x Big East/MAC Champions; 3x Big East/MAC Coach of the Year

    In this presentation from Duke University's Pam Bustin, you'll learn how to better prepare your players and challenge their basic skills through the following drills, techniques and strategies:

    • Flow Drill - passing the ball from various points on the field
    • Influencing play through the "1v1 Defensive Technique"
    • "Shots, Rebounds and Deflections" ball control through passing and receiving techniques
    • Offensive progressions / Defensive progressions
    • 1v1 and 2v2 strategies

    Practice begins with a six-position Flow Drill that works on various shooting and passing techniques from around the field. The drill is designed to make the passer increasingly aware of the receiver's location as well as their direction of movement. The exercise challenges the fundamentals of redirecting passes, staying down on the play, stick work and footwork. Coach Bustin concludes by critiquing the action of the players, reinforcing the strategy she's trying to encourage and soliciting player feedback. .

    The "1v1 Defensive Technique" section concentrates on the defender's skill at delaying and influencing the play through careful defensive techniques. Coach Bustin shows how to challenge offensive players with simple tips like closing quickly and breaking down when you trap, keeping your feet under your hips, running to close and using a drop [step] to get under the ball carrier.

    Using two players attacking the goal, the "Shots, Rebounds and Deflections Drill" shows how to position offensive players to receive passes, intercept rebounds and score with deflections from passes that originate from higher on the field. Focusing on play within the circle, this drill encourages increased movement in an effort to make something happen in front of the goal. Though it focuses on offensive movement, the defense also benefits from the challenge of defending against an offensive with an advantageous field position.

    Coach Bustin shares a variety of drills designed to build upon foundational skills and prepare players for game situations. Game-speed shooting drills give both offensive and defensive players with the opportunity to focus on their fundamental skills and challenge each other to a higher level of performance.

    FHD-03855A: with Barry Kagan,
    Strength & Conditioning Coach, University of Maryland;
    2011 & 2010 Back-to-Back National Champions;
    8x NCAA Champions (1987, 1993, 1999, 2005-2006, 2008, 2010, 2011),
    9x ACC Champions (1992, 1998-2001, 2005, 2008-2010), 51 NCAA All-Americans

    With the rapid increase of talented athletes in field hockey throughout the country, strength and conditioning development can provide a much needed competitive edge for your program.

    Barry Kagan takes you through the Maryland Terrapins strength training philosophy and how he approaches a full year's training preparation. His approach keeps the equipment selection simple for the use of athlete's from the lowest of levels to the most elite.

    Dynamic Warm-Ups & Flexibility
    Properly preparing your athletes for the workout that is about to ensue is as important as the training itself. Kagan begins the Dynamic Flexibility and Plyometric portion of the workout with a variety of ladder drills and numerous dynamic flexibility movements. He has the players demonstrate innovative exercises in which he has specifically created for the benefit of their overall athletic ability or injury prevention.

    Lower-Body Strength Training
    Leg strength is paramount to the success of any athlete and with proper training technique and work ethic; players can dynamically change their game. With over 24 specific lower-body strength training exercises you will be able to ensure proper development of athletes of any experience level. With more than seven different variations of the standard squat you will be not able to only work on their leg-strength, but also simultaneously work on core stabilization and explosiveness.

    Olympic Lifts
    The inclusion of the Olympic lifts work on the triple extension of the lower body: the hips, the knees, and the ankles. These exercises force the body to become explosive in nature and properly translate power throughout their body. From Power Cleans, to Snatch variations, to Push Presses, Kagan covers the technique and proper rep ranges to effectively utilize your body's full potential.

    Upper-Body Strength Training
    No training program is complete without working the upper-body. Kagan covers both pushing and pulling movements to round out the complete workout. He covers exercises such as the Bench Press and Barbell Rows along with the proper form that should be executed to ensure proper utilization. Also discussed is the implementation of single-armed exercises and how they are able to benefit your body by taxing the nervous system and increasing your core stabilization.

    The Maryland Terrapins have had tremendous success in the history of their program. Order this DVD today and see how they properly train their athletes to peak athletic performance for the season!

    FHD-03855B: with Barry Kagan,
    Strength & Conditioning Coach, University of Maryland;
    2011 & 2010 Back-to-Back National Champions;
    8x NCAA Champions (1987, 1993, 1999, 2005-2006, 2008, 2010, 2011),
    9x ACC Champions (1992, 1998-2001, 2005, 2008-2010), 51 NCAA All-Americans

    Peak athletic performance often decides the success of your team. Barry Kagan covers everything in this video on how to maximize speed output, agility work, conditioning your athletes for game-time, and the importance of recovery to your workouts. When the overall commitment by the athletes is made, the outcome is evident once they step on the field.

    Training Plan
    Coach Kagan discusses how he and the Maryland Coaching Staff plan out the training protocol for the upcoming season. All workouts done throughout the year complement each other; speed workouts, agility drills and strength training are all included and revolve around the underlying component of maintaining proper conditioning. From post-season workouts, to spring training, and in-season workouts, Kagan describes in length of what is expected during each period of training including rep ranges, frequency of strength training sessions and how often players should be running.

    Dynamic & Pre-Game Warm-Ups
    Whereas most warm-up plans consist of long periods of time, Kagan's plan is really brief with the focus on getting the body warmed up and ready for the game. Long periods of stretching and warm-up drills can often extend the length of a game being counterproductive to what the goal at hand is. In the drills and stretches included, players are able to be completely ready for peak performance at a much faster rate than before.

    Speed & Agility Training
    Speed training is based on the two mechanisms of strike frequency and stride length. Strike frequency is how quickly the nervous system can fire and how quickly you can drive yourself to the desired outcome. While stride length is more of strength and production you put on each movement. Kagan covers how to use those mechanisms in seven specific speed drills as well as 18 agility drills designed to maximize your training sessions. These drills include sport specificity to enhance player morale during periods of strenuous drills.

    Conditioning
    The goal for athletes is to play at high intensity for extended periods of time. While conditioning is usually only related to the aspect of being able to run, you must be able to prepare athletes to not become injured. Running drills are usually kept short in duration and require change of pace while alternating intensity to mimic the strain of a full game.

    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 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!

    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 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.

    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!
