    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!

  • 09/30/18--22:00: Goalkeeping with Balance
  • with Joppe de Vries,
    University of Maryland Assistant Coach/Technical Director;
    former Goalkeeper Coach for South Africa's Senior Men's and Women's National Teams; has Coached all levels in the Netherlands

    Goalies who are able to defend the second shots are an asset at any level of play. The ability to be set and ready for subsequent shots and use the glove and the stick is a skill necessary for success. Using a progression of clearing drills, Joppe de Vries takes you through how to make sure your goalie is set, balanced and ready to make not only the initial save, but then make a second and third save as well.

    Learn how to teach your goalie to grip their stick to prevent any deflections into their own goal and how to make a reverse stick stop. Along with positioning and proper grip, you will learn more advanced skills such as a one-legged stack and how to prevent goals from being scored in the most dangerous part of the circle. Last but not least, you'll learn creative drills to help your goalie focus on the ball in a crowed circle and how to prepare to make saves on multiple shot attempts on the ground and in the air.

    Ready Position

    Knowing where to stand in the goal varies from goalie to goalie due to their size. Coach de Vries discusses the goalie ready position and how to grip the stick. You'll learn how to determine where your goalie should stand to make the best saves, how to be set for different angled shots, and how to position your goalie to stay balanced so they are ready for anything. Coach de Vries gives detailed examples of correct and incorrect form so you can see how the differences can impact play.

    Footwork and Glove Saves

    Coach de Vries shows you multiple drills to get your goalie's feet ready to take on different shots. He also discusses the appropriate way to make gloves saves. The difference in footwork when goalies are clearing, especially near the mouth of the goal, is additionally covered.

    With his progressive drill segment, Coach De Vries demonstrates how to make a basic clear with the kick, then progresses to a kick save and stick save, ending with a foot, stick and glove save.

    Coach de Vries shares a multitude of training tools to help your goalie react to unknown situations. You'll learn how to have your goalie react to aerial shots, bouncing shots, flat shot and much more. With fun and innovative drills and exercises, you will have a variety of tools to keep your goalie working on the fundamentals.

    "Most of the Goalie training videos I have seen don't make it simple and straightforward. (Joppe De Vries) makes coaching a goalie seem less intimidating. His use of basic concepts as a starting point makes this a must have for any coach." - Customer Review
