This is a Challenge to develop the Hook Tackle 


  • Mark out a grid using cones 
  • Place a number of sliotars randomly throughout the grid
  • Divide the players into pairs, one designated the striker and the other the tackler
  • Each pair jog around the grid, the tackler attempting to perform the hook tackle on each strike
  • Switch the roles after a set time
  • The winner is the player with the greatest number of successful hooks in the time allowed

STEP Variation

Equipment - As the players become more proficient, use a smaller ball, e.g. the Quick Touch ball. Alternatively use a fixed ball, such as the ball and pin apparatus
