Field Hockey Tips: How To Hit A Field Hockey Ball

Hey guys, my name’s Anna Giannoni. I’m a former
college field hockey player and a CoachUp Coach. And this is driving the ball. Yeah, here you, uh, do the girl thing. The importance of the drive is not only to
score on net, but to advance your team down the field. Alright, so how you’re gonna do this is you’re
gonna have your left hand at the end of your stick and you’re gonna have the right hand
at the end of the grip. The ball’s probably gonna be closer to your body than you want
it to so what you’re gonna do is you’re gonna push the ball out so it’s an arm and stick’s
length away and you’re gonna step with your left foot. When you step with your left foot,
you’re also gonna be bringing your stick back, and your right hand’s gonna be coming down
to meet with your left. And then you’re gonna follow through, aim for the back of the ball,
and when you follow through, you’re gonna be pointing where you want the ball to go.
