Goal shooting skills in field hockey

This is the first of a series of three long video clips coaching goal shooting skills. Not many people have looked at these on youtube but I think they are excellent. Coach Trini Powell explains the skills easily and slowly – taking time to walk and talk players through everything. This was filmed on a hockey summer camp and although it’s long I think it’s well worth studying carefully. She is particularly good on showing you how to commit the goal keeper to a movement – only to change your own direction and fire off a shot.
