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.

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.

Floorball drills for 6 to 10 year old – 2 vs. 0, 1-1 and 2-1

6-10 vuotiaiden 2 vastaan 0 salibandyharjoite

A simple 2 vs 0 floorball practice for young / youth players (children).

The floorball practice to the left starts in a 1 vs 1 situation. Coach makes a short pass, which also is the start signal for the players. The players will compete to the ball and the player reaching it first, passes it back to the coach.
After that both players continue to the other side and go 2-0 towards the goalie. One of the players pick up the ball and run with it towards the short end, the other player without the ball runs towards the goal. The player with ball passes the ball to the player in front of the goalie, who shoots.

Floorball drill to the right

The floorball drill to the right is performed the same way as in the example to the left, except the coach passes the ball back to the players and they go 2-0 against the goalie.

Make the youth floorball drill 1-1 or 2-1

Both floorball practices can be changed into a 1 vs 1 floorball drill. Instead of passing each other, one of the players is attacking and the other one is defending.

You can also change the drill into a 2 vs 1 floorball practice by adding a defensive player that follows the first two players in the first sequence and is the defensemen in the last part of the drill.

Add more passes or change positions

Now the floorball drill is in a very simple and basic format, but you can also add more passes to the drill or make the players change positions when going towards the goal.

Floorball warm up practice – Change positions

Salibandy lämmittely harjoitus - Paikan vaihdot ja lyhyet syötöt

Floorball warm up practices – Change position up to the right (a)

P1 starts the floorball warm up practice, by running with the ball towards the border, P2 runs behind P1. P1 passes the ball to P2 who takes the shot, both players goes for the rebound.

1. P1 doesn’t pass, P1 shoots and P2 goes for the rebound.
2. P1 passes and P2 passes back P1 shoots. With this option the floorball goalie also gets good practice in moving from side to side or post to post.
3. Add a defensemen who starts in the middle or meets up the two forwards and you have a simple 2 on 1 floorball practice.
4. Start the floorball drill from the corner or from the border, from left or right.

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

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

Salibandy peliharjoitteet hyökkäysharjoite

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.
