How to do a field hockey tomahawk / reverse stick

Field Hockey Tomahawk

Today I want to share one of the hockey skills that I teach in the Hockey Performance Academy Mentorship Program – The Tomahawk, also known as the reverse stick hit.

The video demonstration’s are done by GB internationals & Olympic Bronze medalists, Sally Walton and Ashleigh Ball.

Key points:

1. Get low to the ground

2. Keep your head down

3. Ball should be in line (or slightly ahead) of front leg

4. Distance is about a sticks length away

5. Make contact with the shaft end
