The 1st team session started with a focus on goal scoring as an area that has been an issue for some time.
This started with a close in game using the 3v3 in D drill below.
Once players had warmed up we transitioned into using the Creating Chances using deflections drill, this was kept simple with the emphasis on the angle of the run and deflecting the ball into a dangerous zone in and around the goal.
For some further guidance on the deflection see the Hockey Australia video below. This shows that the process can be simple. While the angle is slightly different the technique remains the same.
I am struggling to find a video of the variation where you use the pace and angle of the ball in a disguised slap.
