With hockey relying on a touch in the attacking D for a goal it is vital to create space to allow time for a shot or to be an option to receive a pass.
The 3D skills shown in the previous blog will help you to create that space, but there may be situations where there is not space for that. The ability to hit the ball on the turn can really help as well as make it incredibly hard for the defender.
It is important to note that the squeeze shot in the demo works best on Waterbased pitches and would not be recommended on Claremont.
Although not specific to the D the video below shows an example of the different skills International players use to create space and beat a player.
