Jinking the ball in field hockey

Another video from Ryde Hockey Club – must admit I find them among the best. This is showing a skill that will boost your performance dramatically if you can perfect it. Jinking the ball – or literally lifting it in a controlled way over a defenders stick.

I have mastered the first stage but am still struggling to keep the ball under tight control once I have ‘jinked it’.


Here’s a second clip showing jinking technique.

However, in this second clip from Hockey Australia on the reverse jink they show the stick turning a different way from the Ryde hockey club video – and this second version looks more tricky.

But, which one is most effective. Comments from anybody who knows most welcome!
