How to score a goal in field hockey

Goal scoring in hockey

It’s just about all in this England Hockey video clip. Deflections, rebounds, sweeps, chip hits, reverse deflections…every kind of goal scoring possibility is covered here. Not sure whether you could translate these from this clip to your own play – but it’s good as a catalogue of all the possible shots available to you. My favourite is the left deflection and most of my goals this season have come from these. However, they are made easier because I have a strong centre forward with a whacking hit and I can mop up some of her wide shots and net some of her strong passes – always helps. The chip hit looks particularly useful though, so I’m going to drill that shot when we return to league games after the Christmas break.
