In the youth or childrens floorball practice to the right the players are practicing ball control and stickhandling. Players make a couple of short moves before two long moves with the stick and the ball, and after that a shot in to the goal.

When the players have taken the shot, they pick up the ball again and practice feints on the way back. The feints they can practice, can be a passing feint, shot feint or a body feint to start up with some basic dekes.

Running four floorball practices at the same time

By splitting up the rink / floor in small parts you can have like in this example four floorball practices up and running at the same time. You can run both floorball practices in this drill drawing at one end and therefore have many active young floorball players at the same time.

Floorball ball control / stickhandling drill for children / youth players – to the left

The floorball drill to left starts with the player taking a ball and making a long move to the sides, moving the ball behind the cones, this is repeated three times and after that the player takes a shot into the goal.

Make use of the way back

Usually the practices are ended after a shot, but I think it’s good to give your players missions or tasks to perform when they return to the starting position. In the floorball drill to left I have put in running backwards with the ball back to the que, but you can also make your players practice a feint / deke or their coordination skills.

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.
