6 STATIONS (5 minutes each) 6 or 7 players per station
- Go in and score!
Location One end on faceoff circle
Focus: Carry the puck and score on a net “coming across the face of the net”

Players skate forward – stop at a pylon … skate backwards in a complete circle around the pylon – forward to the next etc.
- Deke and shoot:
Location: Inside the ringette ring across ice to give more of a chance to move the puck
