Field Hockey Tricks:How To Air Dribble

August 17, 2019


Hey guys, my name’s Anna Giannoni. I’m a former
college field hockey player and a CoachUp Coach. And this is the air dribble. The air dribble is a great technique to use
when you have a substantial amount of space between you and a defender. It adds a little
flare as you run down the field. So what you’re gonna do here is you’re gonna
position your hands in the same positions like before, left hand at the end of the stick,
right hand at the end of the grip. Where you’re gonna start, the ball is at the end of your
stick right here on your right side. You’re gonna transfer your weight from the right
to the left and as you do that, you’re gonna use the momentum to pop the ball up in the
air and then position the stick under the ball so you have balance and then you can
start dribbling it.

    Would prefer less of the intro about Anna and more of the actual useful skills stuff which lasts a few seconds. Would be more useful then.
