Utilising the Forehand Shot is vital, and hugely important to your game.


Traditional Hit, (First 2)

  1. Ensure the ball is inline of infront

  2. hitting road the ball, not through (Like cricket)

  3. Hands together

  4. Head Still

  5. Experiment with the drop handle style, for a quicker strike

  6. Wide stance on hit

  7. Be side on, shoulder facing the goal

  8. Don't look up until you have completed the hit

  9. Try to keep the ball down, (when passing)

  10. For the slight lift, experiment with ball position and slight angle change in stick face.

  2. Quickly trapping the ball and the working your feet into position

  3. Try to receive the ball in the middle of your body

  4. Jump around the ball

  5. Head Still

  1. The idea is to hit on the move

  2. Running away from the defender, so you cannot be tackled

  3. Drop handle hit

  4. Try to push the ball away, then prepare quickly

  5. Always try to aim far post, as your weight is falling away from the goal

  6. Get your hands around the back of the ball

  7. Ball in line with right foot
