The “How to Train Hex” video series – Season 1 – features 9 uniquely Hex-centric drills. This series is essential for any coaches wishing to implement Hex principles smoothly into their team – coming directly from Felix’s experiences with designing, implementing, and developing Hex training methods in a variety of teams since 2012. Each drill / exercise is explained clearly and concisely through explanations, animations, and example footage. The drills are varied and dynamic – designed to train players’ quick disc movement, field awareness, shape + space creation & usage, give-go/dribbling technique, long throwing, and more elements key to a fluid Hex Offence.

Sockeye’s Tyler Kinley joins Felix to talk about a series of tweets he posted on 29-30 Dec, specifically the frustrations he feels when defenders fail to poach effectively against a horizontal stack offence. We then see an example of a successful deep poach, and talk about how teamplay can be used in different ways to cover for the poach – to afford the defender the liberty to leave their 1-to-1 matchup, and keep the offence contained effectively. Full interview/analysis available for Patrons.
