Basic Dummy Left: This is the first dummy everybody learns, but the tendency is for persons to come out of it not facing the direction they started in see video: The key is to bring the puk back into the opposition, 3 tiles is the maximum you should come off straight. As you straighten your arm it is harder for the opposition to get back access. See video

Basic Pass Right: A true dummy right is hard but a mini flick and chase suffices in most practical circumstances as the opposition believe you will go left as everybody else does. See video

Drive Through Left:  The first dummies are best if you can combine them with a change of pace, but often we break out against the opposition and end up 1:1 about 4m out and are going too fast to change our pace. The best way is to smash it legally through them! The first step to learning it is to bring the puk under you and reverse the way up of the stick to an ‘upper cut’ like form. You can then punch it (with the stick) 30 to 45 degrees either way. This takes practice and is almost useless if moving slowly(apologise for the possible foul, spotted the possibility afterwards) .  See video

Group: The Squeeze,

There are 4 parts to this exercise to build up the difficulty (see video The Squeeze Part 1 thought 4).

The concept is to keep going straight and this works very nicely. Swim in a straight line with a defender trying to chase you down. At the last second do a quick flic (believe me 2 feet can be plenty) part 1 Another player on your team catches up and gets the puk squeezing the defender out.  see video.

You can if you wish draw the player away from the line to give you more space/time and then flick back to the line, ( but it works fine without this) part 2 without opponents see video, part 3 with opponents see video

The beauty is IF you stay down after your flick and IF your other player is CLOSE enough the defender even if they get the puk and has nowhere to go and they have to turn into your team relatively weak sticked and you can drive through. Bingo your team scores.  see video
