To increase difficulty, perform this skills test at the end of a training session or practice when you are most tired.

Summer is an important time for players to practice and improve. To sharpen your skills on your own, you can use the Field Hockey Skills Test (explained below) to measure your fundamentals and shooting accuracy while under pressure. A great way to measure your improvement is to run through the test before attending an all skills field hockey camp and then run yourself through it again, after camp ends.

Set up:

The set up of this drill is simple. All you need is six balls, 12 cones and a goal. To start, place six cones in a line spread apart over 25 yards on one side of the goal and place a ball next to the cone closest to the goal.
