This is a basic drill to practice the Shoulder-to-Shoulder Clash technique 

Organisation

  • The players pair off, standing in two lines facing the Coach
  • The Coach holds a hurley on the ground between each pair as they approach at walking pace
  • Both players swing on the hurley together and return to the end of the line
  • Alternate sides on repeat attempts
  • Alternatively a tyre may be used for the players to pull on

STEP Variation

Task - To increase the challenge: Jog into the clash

Equipment - Introduce a football for the players to strike on, for example a First Touch football. As they become more proficient reduce the size of the ball, for example to a First Touch sliotar
