Improve your team's competitiveness using first touch techniques from former Canadian and USA national team coach Shiv Jagday. You'll learn how to control the ball and force defenders to react to your actions instead of influencing them.

An effective "first touch" of the ball often times ensures successful passing and receiving, ball movement, advancement of the ball and success when facing the defense.

Coach Jagday spends minimal time on individual drills, preferring to work on improving first touch skills within game-like situations. He expertly divides the field and player positions into interlocking, triangular groups of three. From this format, players practice passing and receiving, and build plays for moving the ball down field. As players progress, Jagday increases the space between players thereby challenging their ability and better simulating game situations.

After covering the basics, Coach Jagday discusses how to receive a pass under pressure and draw or entice a defender, then make a pass to the overlapping teammate within the appropriate triangle of players. He demonstrates how focusing on individual technique and delaying a pass, allows the receiver to adjust the leading angles and prepares them to make the next positive move.

The best field hockey players in the world use their first touch to create time and space and to place the defender at a disadvantage. Coach Jagday's first touch techniques and his strategy for dividing the playing field will improve your team's first touch skills and ultimately their level of competitiveness.

I feel that the content of these video provides very valuable information for the coaches of young and developing hockey players in some very core skill areas. They provide not only excellent technical information but also valuable guidelines for coaches on how to develop various skills in their players.

I recommend these videos to any coach or player who wants to learn more about skill development in hockey and improving themselves."

Former Canadian and USA National Team coach Shiv Jagday shows how to develop tackling skills and how to efficiently critique and identify areas of improvement. From his perspective, tackling is position- and field-location specific; one technique does not suit every situation.

In this video you will learn multiple tackling techniques and the best field position for each tackle.

Training for proper tackling starts with being aware of what side of the field you're on and where you want to force the ball. Therefore, an important part of training includes dividing and identifying the different parts of the field. Coach Jagday demonstrates how dividing the field makes it easier for players to understand the best tackle to use.

Jagday shares drills that efficiently teach players and coaches alike the correlation between stance and the various types of tackles. Shadow dancing and footwork drills — with and without the ball — help players develop these important fundamental skills. The defensive stance must allow the player to recover quickly from their tackling efforts.

Once players understand the connection between the tackle they use and the specific part of the field they're on, practice progresses to 1-on-1, 2-on-1 and 3-on-1 drills that better reflect game-like conditions. Coach Jagday explains how tackling is more
