IP Practice Oct13, 2012 Bell 3,4,5 and 6 …. THE ALL PUCK PRACTICE!

We will increase our focus on puck handling while still working on avoidance skating (maneuverability, balance, edge control), skating backwards, as well as stopping  ALL WITH A PUCK. This will slow all rotations – so being efficient with the movement between stations is important.

WARM UP JUST SKATE WITH PUCKS – TIRES ON ICE AS OBSTACLES (COUNTER CLOCKWISE) 5 minutes

Focus: Stick handling , avoidance skating, keeping their heads up

ALL IN   (8 minutes)  ALL THE DRILLS WITH PUCKS  with no obstacles

  1. 1.       FAST AS YOU CAN SKATE there and back with a puck – pushing it
  2. 2.       RABBIT SKATE hop over ALL the RED LINES (Ringette, red, ringette,)
  3. 3.       RED LIGHT GREEN LIGHT

STATIONS: (5 minutes per station)

1. SHORT PASSES IN PAIRS – Players 10 feet apart. Forehand and backhand pass.

Focus: Making and receiving passes –especially correct stick work

2. STICK HANDLING IN LOCATION

Focus : Rotating their upper hand and letting their lower hand slide to pivot their stick to guide the puck

3.  BACKWARD SKATING WITH PUCKS

Focus: Skating backwards while dragging the puck with them.

4. RECEIVING PASS AND SHOOTING ON NET (2 Nets required at opposite sides)

Focus: NOT A ONE TIMER! Receive a short pass from 20 feet way (stick on ice), get control and shoot (forehand)

 

5. SKATING WITH THE PUCK AROUND THE CIRCLES BOTH WAYS

Focus: Skating with a puck around a circle both ways requires them to control the puck as they turn.

6. PASSING THE PUCK THROUGH OBSTACLES TO ANOTHER PLAYER –

Focus: 2 lines – cooperative passing when the other player is ready and no obstacles (tires)

7.  . SLALOM COURSE WITH PUCKS  –  6 “high stick” pylons

Focus: Rotating their upper hand and letting their lower hand slide to pivot their stick to guide the puck

8. BREAK AWAY SHOT! – Start with the puck in the middle of the ice, push through the legs of the tripod (stick and two legs), go in and shoot on the net.(2 nets required at opposite sides)

Focus:  Avoidance skate( around tripod) , carrying the puck and shooting.

IF TIME THEN ALL IN AT ONE END – same as last week.

IMPORTANT!!! WARN THEM ABOUT CRASHING INTO THE BOARDS AT THE FAR END

CHARIOT RACE ON KNEES to the far end and back

Focus: Power, skating with the knees bent

All instructors “Tunnel up” and kids “tap off” when they get off the ice. This is an important part of the ritual – it reminds them BY NAME they did a good job and that we look forward to seeing them next week.

PHOTOS NEXT WEEK!
