Phila H Field Hockey Tribe

Contributorbronze Phila H Hockey season has just kicked off here in Australia! Had our first match for points on the weekend. Won 4-1 despite only having 10 players on the field! Should be a good season, except our seasoned pro and calmer of the team is out for 6 weeks now with a broken toe :-(

Daniel H Field Hockey Tribe

Contributorgold Daniel H Hey! Recent hockey convert. Played when I was a kid - 7 or 8 years old. Then moved onto rugby. Played summer hockey, now first season of winter hockey. I'm on the wing or a half, utilise my speed and agility. Any tips on training drills etc for stick skills. The area I'm lacking on not playing for 20 years playing against seasoned players!! I have to be really aggressive ahaha

thanks man. slowly working out the difference in positions. I'm playing a bit of inner as well. I'm super quick - but I find wing quite boring waiting high on post etc, I find myself running back to help defend and being told to stay in position!!

Depends what a coach is after but I love a forward that loves to run! Learn to lead - drag your half marking you out deep and wide then sprint into the gap you just created when your team has free hits from the back. Look for channels that you can sprint into to get balls. I honestly love a forward that comes back looking for the ball as long as they are quick enough if we get a break away to spint up and support the ball carrier. But yeah if you're bored just start leading into gaps. You'll find you'll get the ball a lot more too and your halves and fullbacks will totally love you!

thank you! the back end of my team are real slow, and theres this one hero who just tries to weave and then wack it through to the centre forward and it always gets intercepted and hes always telling me to stand high. hes a senior member to. the ball is always stuck in the back end of our field, and we barely see any ball. What can I do? :(

Contributorgold Meldrum M Big game for me today, anyone else got a game? If so who are you playing, should you win and what position do you play? Get in touch folks!

We should go alright this season - most players back from last season and we took out premiership.. But ya never know! I play everywhere - I was the coach's daughter growing up. I do have to say I hated it at the time but it meant I always got into rep teams. Last game I played Inside Left but in some games I'm the sweeping fullback, high fullback (which we push up to being more like a second centre half), centre half, left half, or both inners. I used to play up in the forwards but we have forwards coming out of our ears this season! What position do you play?

Meldrum M encouraged this.

That is good that most have returned, always helps for sure! What do you mean rep teams? Yeah can play anywhere, prefer midfield but recently had a few shifts at the back and enjoying it

20130421081209-phila_holmes

Ohh I was going to say unlucky you! I hate playing at the back! Rep teams as in representative teams where you go away for state and regional tournaments and the like.

Definitely! I wish we'd taken videos of our old defensive team at short corners, we were awesome! There's nothing more satisfying than winding up a retired England player who thinks the be-all and end-all of shorts is to do a straight strike - wha...
