5 NEW Hockey Training Drills from David Harte and Crazy Catch

Think Outside the Box hockey is a set of new, innovative drills from Crazy Catch, specifically created with hockey in mind. Featuring Ireland’s David Harte, in total there are five drills for both goalkeepers and outfield players to use, although there are many more drills that can be developed from these five.

Double Rebound

No Man’s Land

Freestyle in the D

The main benefit of using Crazy Catch for hockey is the variety and fun it can add to your training or practice. By using both the SANE and INSANE rebound sides, it is far easier to test your ability and skill levels and simulate match conditions. The unpredictability of the INSANE side provides a great test for any goalkeeper looking to challenge their reactions and saving capabilities, whilst outfield players can develop and improve their first touch, particularly at taking the ball from the air.

For small ball sports, like hockey, the Crazy Catch Classic range is the recommended choice, as can be seen in the above videos. The Upstart is the smallest Crazy Catch in the Classic range, followed by the Wildchild, which is our most popular model, and finally the Professional, which is ideal for clubs and schools. The Freestyle is the only hand held Crazy Catch and a great coaching aid.
