This tudy examined the 3-D kinematics of the field hockey penalty corner push-in, in order to to formulate coaching recommendations for optimal push-in performance. Male hockey players (N=17) who were experienced (n=8) or novice (n=9) push-in performers participated in the study. It was expected that 1) experienced push-in performers would demonstrate greater accuracy and resultant ball velocity than novice performers, 2) kinematic parameters would differ between the two groups, and 3) stance width would correlate to resultant ball velocity. Two 50 Hz video cameras recorded transverse and longitudinal views of accurate push-in trials. Kinematic analysis provided data for push-in accuracy, resultant ball velocity, stance width, drag distance, drag time, average drag velocity, center of gravity displacement, and segment and stick angular displacements and velocities. Experienced push-in performers demonstrated greater stance width (105±14 cm vs 80±18 cm, p<0.01) and faster resultant ball velocity (18,1±1,3 m,s-1 vs 15,7±0,8 m,s-1, p<0,001) than the novice group, The results yielded four coaching recommendations for enhanced push-in performance including training specificity, stance optimisation, explosive dragging and kinetic chain awareness,
