Another week in social isolation so today we run through the Best of the Web with Virtual Hockey Skills put out there by the hockey community

 

With the entire country (if not a large portion of the world) still in lockdown and social isolation, this week we take a look at what other sources of home-hockey is being put out for players, young and old, to keep working on.

Former Lindum Hockey Club player, Stuart Kirk puts his pretty face to good use in front of the camera with some “Hockey Skills at Home”

 

Hockey For Heroes, from today, are going to be bringing “practical advice for coaches and aspiring coaches, skills training for players, specialist mastery for Goalkeepers and no nonsense strength and conditioning for improving your hockey fitness”

Thank you to Phil Baker for the heads-up on this one.

 

Recently retired International Player Alex Danson has some hockey obstacle course inspiration for you…

It’d be great to see what you’re able to come up with by filling your garden with hockey obstacles!

 

England Hockey have compiled a list of their favourite videos…

 

Hockey on TV

When you’ve had enough fresh air, or for when the weather turns bad, why not see how top-level hockey is played? Please ensure you have the consent of your parent / guardian before watching videos online (you could invite them to watch these with you).

A great compilation of “Ultimate Field Hockey Skills” from international level, courtesy of Love Hockey…

Watch, especially on the clips where the ball goes from one end of the pitch to the other, how much teamwork is involved and (usually!) how much the ball moves, and how quickly, compared to the players.

 

What Have You Been Up To?

Meanwhile we’ve had some great responses to the club’s challenges and it’s great to see that you’ve been keeping yourselves active and entertained!

Eva’s been tearing up the garden with her orange cones and Gary Johnson’s Teaser Tuesday challenge…

 

While Dan’s been designing his own shark-based hockey stick (stick and kit designs … possibly ones to save for the next rainy day?)…

 

Great work, people! Keep them coming and let us know how you’re getting on!

 

Give Us Your Feedback

Let us know how you’re getting on with these challenges, either on social media or via the contact page. Be honest about it and you might even get a shout out the following week!

 

Got a Question?

If you’ve got a question you’d like to put to our junior coaches about anything hockey-related, or if there’s a specific skill you’d like some advice on then we’ll throw it Alex’s way we’ll see if we can include it on a future challenge.

 

All of our videos are published on Lindum Hockey Club’s YouTube Channel.
