Hitting tips


A guide to hitting by Zoe Shipperley

Impact Hitting

Don't try and hit the ball as hard as you can

Keep your head down over the ball, don't come up to quickly.

For attackers shooting on goal putting the ball into your back space and getting a quick shot away off your back foot is very hard for defenders to defend against and goal keeper to read.

Slap hitting

Get the slap away quickly as taking your stick off the ball to slap allows an opportunity for the opposition to nip in and jab the ball away.

Experiment and try to add some disguise to your slap pass, either by rolling the ball down your sticks shaft or by playing it under your arm.
