Salibandy pelitilanteet ja harjoitteet 3-0, 4-0

3 vs 0 Floorball practice to left

In the floorball drill to the right P1 starts running with ball from the corner, P3 leaves his/her position in front of the goal, and meets P1. P1 continues his/her running behind the goal and passes the ball to P2. P2 runs with the ball towards the short end, P1 takes P2 position. P2 passes the ball to P3 who has returned back in front of the goal. P3 shoots the ball into the goal. P4 is not part of the drill if you practice it 3 vs 0.

Add a pass to the floorball drill

After a while you can add a pass in this drill, when P2 meet P1, P2 passes to P1, P1 passes to P3, P3 takes the shot on goal.

Change the 3-0 floorball practice

Or P1 does not pass the ball to P3, instead P1 turns around and takes the shot, P2 and P3 are in front of the goal to pick up rebounds.

4 vs 0 floorball practice to the left

You perform the floorball drill as described in the first step, but you add P4 as one option for the pass from P2, the shot will then come from P3 or P4.

Change the floorball drill to a 3-2, 4-2 or 4-3 situation

Add two or three defensemen to the floorball practice drill to get a 3-2, 4-2 or 4-3 situation. The defensemen will follow players 1, 2 and/or 3.

2 vs 0 floorball practice (left)

You can also make a 2-0 situation of this floorball practice. In that case you do the floorball drill as the drawing shows until the pass to P2. After P1 has made the pass he/she turn around and goes behind the goal the sam way he/she has come, P2 passes the ball to P1 in front of the goal. P1 shoots the ball into the net. If you do the practice this way P3 and P4 are not included at all in the floorball practice.

Floorball game drill 2 vs. 0, 2-1 or 1-1

Salibandy peliharjoite 2 vastaan 0

Floorball drill to the left. P1 runs with ball at the border and makes a turn towards the border. P2 runs past and receives a pass from P1 at the short end. P2 break in front of the goal and takes a shot. P1 takes P2 position and the floorball drill starts over again.

…or P1 runs into the middle and receives a pass from the P2 que, P1 takes a shot.

…or P1 runs into the middle and receives a pass from the P2 que, P2 and comes up after his/her shot and P1 and P2 play 1 on 1 towards the goal.

Floorball practice to the right

P1 runs with the ball at the border and turns towards the centre and creates therefore space for P2 at the border. P2 runs behind P1, P1 passes the ball to P2, who takes a shot or passes the ball back to P1 who takes the shot.

Make the floorball drill to the right 2-1 or 2-2

You can add one or two defensemen into this floorball practice to make it 2 vs 1 or 2 vs 2. The defensive players can follow P1 and P2 or meet up from the short end.

Fake a pass to the border

P1 can also make a pass feint towards the border and continue with the ball in the middle and take the shot. P2 goes then for the rebound.

2-0, 3-1, 3-2 or 3-3 Drills / Practices

Make the above floorball practices to 2–0, 3-1, 3-2 or 3–3. This is a description of how to change basic practices described in yesterdays post.

2 vs 0 floorball drill, option 1

Make the floorball drill to the left to a 2 vs 0 practice by removing the defensemen from the drill. In that case P2 receives the pass and moves in front of the goal to take a shot, or why not practice a Zorro-move when coming from behind the goal.

3 vs. 1 floorball drill, option 2

Make the floorball practice 3 vs 1 by adding a defensemen who follows P1, P2 or passively disturbs the defensemen.

3 vs 2 floorball drill, option 3

Make the floorball practice 3 vs 2 by adding two defensemen who follows P1 and P2

3 vs 3 floorball practice, option 4

You can also make the floorball drill to a 3 vs 3 drill by adding defensemen who follows each offensive player (including the defensemen). You can say that in that case you have three 1 on 1 situations where you need to beat the opponent in order to be successful. The defensive players can be passive in the beginning, just marking their presence.

3 vs 3 floorball practice, option 5

3 vs 3 can also be done like this. Make the first moves like in the floorball drill drawing. When the defensemen receives the pass three defensemen step in to the practice and they play 3 on 3 until the “ball is dead”, by that I mean the ball is in goal, the goalie has the ball or the defensemen has passed the ball to “P1” the next in line to start up the drill.

Offensive floorball practices and drills – to the left

The floorball practice to the left starts with player 1 running with the ball towards the short end. P2 runs to the short on the other side of the goal. P1 passes the ball to P2, who turns around with the ball and passes on the ball to the defensemen. The defensemen takes a couple of steps with the ball and shoots. P1 and P2 goes for the area in front of the posts for rebounds.

Floorball practice /drill to the right

The floorball drill to the right follows the same pattern as the practice above or to the left. The difference is in that the defensemen does not take the shot, but he/she makes a diagonal pass to P1 instead, who takes the shot. After the pass D1 takes a new ball and takes a shot from distance. P1 and P2 in front of the goal, to make mask for the goalie and to pick up possible rebounds.

Change this floorball drill to 3-0, 2-0, 3-1, 3-2 or 3-3 practice

I will describe how you can change this drill to a 3-0, 2-0, 3-1, 3-2 or 3-3 practice in the next post in this floorball blog, welcome back tomorrow…

Floorball Shot practices / Shooting drills

Laukaisu harjoitteet salibandy

Floorball shooting practices – Floorball Drill to the right

Player 1 starts the floorball excercise by running with the ball and taking a shot from the border. P1 heads for goal to catch a possible rebound, after that P1 takes a new ball behind the goal, and makes a pass to P2 in front of the goal, who takes a shot. P2 continues to corner to pick up a new ball and passes it to the next “P1” player. The floorball drill is repeated like in the beginning…

Make the floorball practice to the right (2-1 or 3-1)

Add a pass option and make the floorball drill as 2 vs 1 or 3 vs 1.

1. You can include one or two more players to this floorball drill. One player follows P1 and goes for the rebound, after this he/she defends against P1 and P2 (2-1 situation).

2. Two players comes out from the corner, one player goes like in the drill drawing and the second one goes straight to the first post. P1 choose who to pass to. The added player in the first sequence (above) works with defense (3 vs. 1). Player that has taken the shot picks up a new ball in the corner and passes the player who did not take the shot, that player pass up the ball to “P1” and the floorball drill starts over again.

Floorball Breakout Practice

Break outs in floorball tend sometimes to be a bit static, at least in my “hockey” eyes. Three players are passing the ball to each other in a triangle near own goal and after a while a long pass on chance towards the two top forwards. This is visualized in the floorball game picture below. The opposite team is just passive and can easily keep a correct positioning.

Breakout Floorball passing triangle

Do you recognize the set up? Do you agree?

Floorball breakout option with more movement involved

What if… we start to be more active, move a little bit more and force the opposite team to do the same…

Breakout option in floorball

D1 passes the ball to D2. D2 starts to move towards the border, D1 moves into the position of D2, D2 passes the ball to D1 in centre and continues the running towards the border. P1 runs into the centre and either the opposite teams offensive player will follow him to the middle and we have a free space for a pass to D1 (pass B). If the opposite player decides not follow P1, P1 will be free in the middle (pass A). The two top forwards will switch positions and create confusion for the defensemen on how to act.

The next passing options will be:
If A then A1 or A2 (or D1 at border, not visualized in the drawing).
If B then B1 or B2.

Could this work, what do you think?
