Practice Outline IP2 Saturday November 2  Merivale Arena 10 – 3

Focus areas: Power in forward skating, puck control, passing, shooting

Equipment needed: 

4 nets,20 balls,Blue pucks,6 Orange buckets,4 martial arts belts,12 Large pylons,10 Bike tires,6 Ringette rings

WARM UP SKATE:  Need 4 nets

Mini game across the ice with balls 10 per end ( Half of each team at each end)

ALL IN:  One end (Much shorter than normally)

Skate as fast as you can to one end and back

Stop at every line and wave at the stands

Fall down at blue lines there and back

6 SKILL STATIONS (each team to their end – DIVIDE IN THREE meaning 5 or 6 players per station)

1. ONE TIMER SHOT AT NET

2 nets – instructors deliver pass about 6 feet in front of the net. The idea is to get them to skate to a point on the ice and shoot while maintaining their balance. This is a rapid pace drill so no one waits in line. This will be hard for many players. Shots do NOT need to be slap shots and they may end up being backhand shots if the player does not get to the puck early enough.

Vocab: “Two hands on your stick, Keep your stick on the ice, Skate to the puck and shoot, Shoot hard. When you shoot go to the other line”

 2. BUCKET PUSH THROUGH TIRE COURSE  – Set up across the ice between the blue line and the ringette line

Players push an orange bucket through the tire slalom course. The idea is to force players DOWN into a power push stance as well as to work on inside edge control, coupled with bringing the body around a turn by using their upper body.

Vocab:  “Get low and skate hard, Push the bucket around the tires, Skate as fast as you can”

3. PARTNER PULL

Players pull their partner using the martial arts belt across the ice between the blue line and the red line

Vocab: “Stay low, bend your knees, Dig your edges in, Pull hard”

Other end

4. PASS TO INSTRUCTOR, RECEIVE RETURN PASS AND GO IN FOR A SHOT ON THE NET WHICH HAS A GOALIE IN IT – ONLY USE ONE NET moved to the side

The idea is to practice making a pass and then SKATING FORWARD to receive a pass.

Vocab: Two hands on your stick, Keep your stick on the ice. Shoot where the goalie isn’t”

 

5. RINGETTE RINGS THROUGH A PYLON COURSE ALONG THE BOARDS FROM THE BLUE LINE THE FACE OFF CIRCLE

Idea is to have players move along the boards going in and out of the pylon course which is about 4 feet from the boards. This is the first step towards “making a move” on the boards – cutting inside or outside a defender who is away from the boards. The boards prevent turns from being too wide on one side. Reversing the direction will help players deke to the other side.  

Vocab: “Keep your head up and move in and out of the pylons, When done wait in the face off circle, Don’t bump into the boards, Try to deke the pylon as if it was a player”

6. PARTNER PASSING (pylons half way between the blue line and red line leave room at one board for the ringette drill)

Idea is to have pairs of players pass to each other with a LARGE pylon between them representing an opposing player. This will be very hard for most players. The passes do not have to be long or that hard – accuracy and passing to a player “in the open” is the idea

VOCAB: “Pass the puck to your partner, Keep your stick on the ice, Don’t let the pylon get in your way. You need to move so your partner has someone to pass to.”

WRAP UP GAME: If time we will play FREEZE TAG

TUNNEL UP AND SAY GOODBYE
