IP2 Practice Outline Saturday Oct 5 Merivale Arena 10 – 3

We have now had two practices and have seen most players doing what hockey players do: skating, stopping, shooting and of course falling down and getting back up. Our players showed a wide range of ability – something that is expected. Every one of our Timbits will develop their skills at their own speed. It is very important that we let that happen. It is critical that we do not stress out our players by asking them to do more than they are able to.  The whole idea is to push but not pressure. Our goal is to encourage them to get better every single practice while at the same time understanding that sometimes a skill will be harder and take more time to develop than we planned for. It is OK that a player can only do part of any given drill or activity. The goal is to have everyone want to improve because they love the game we have introduced them to.

TODAY we work on puck handling, stopping and skating backwards

Warm up : Skate with pucks (less than 10 minutes)

Vocab: “Keep it on your stick, two hands on your stick, don’t shoot”

ALL IN one end (by team) Shorter than the first two weeks = Less than 10 minutes

Fast as you can to the other end and back

Two foot hop every line there and back

Down on two knees and get up at every line there and back

THIS PRACTICE WILL USE A DIFFERENT ROTATION METHOD

Stations (4) max 10 players/  2 or 3  instructors  per station approximately 5 minutes each

NOTE: Instructors will rotate through with their group – so you will need to know how to run all the drills

  1.       RECEIVE  SHORT PASS AND GO IN TO SHOOT ON THE NET

2 nets   (PVC goalies  – no need to move it in the net) 2 lines of players – move between lines

Make sure pass is soft and short

Vocab: “Stick on the ice to receive the pass, head up shoot where the goalie isn’t!”

 2.      SKATING BACKWARDS  Across ice between blue and red lines

Skate backwards with pairs using hoola hoops

Vocab: “Use a C cut, Use both legs, bend your knees, head up”

 3.      TUG + ONE FOOT STOP

Start with pairs trying to pulling each other sideways using a rope loop. The whole idea is to show them that they can dig in their inner edge on their leading foot to prevent themselves from being pulled. Progress to a one foot stop on both sides. THIS WILL BE HARD FOR SOME PLAYERS.

Vocab: “Dig your edge in, lean back, face both ways, lift your back foot”

 4.      RINGETTE RINGS THROUGH THE PYLONS

Three lines of 7 pylons across the ice  – try to have one for slower skaters to avoid players standing around

Vocab: “Push down on your stick, lean into the turn, skate as fast as you can, don’t come back through the pylons”

ONE TEAM GOES TO EACH END FOR NEXT ACTIVITY

SHOOT AGAINST THE BOARDS ( 5 minutes) – spread out from blue line around to blue line

Each player will have their own puck and will shoot sweep or wrist shots against the boards, recover the puck then shoot again – forehand and backhand.

Vocab: “Two hands on your stick, feet spread apart, turn sideways to the boards, shoot hard”

It is too early to teach the concept of rolling the wrist.

STATIONARY STICK HANDLING ( 5 minutes) –  have players face out from the boards and stick handle in front of themselves

Vocab: “Tilt your stick to cradle the puck, try to keep your head up, don’t lose the puck”

WRAP UP GAME – MINI game with 10 hotdogs played across the ice inside the blue lines Tunnel up to say goodbye!

 

WARNING!

Clean up has to be super fast because I need to make it to Bell for the 4 hours of IP1 starting at 3.
