Practice outline IP2 Bell Arena Dec 28 3-8

Posted: December 28, 2013 in Uncategorized

Practice outline Saturday Dec 28 Bell Arena 3 – 8

Focus areas: I want to continue to work on edge control forwards, backwards, power on the forward push, cross overs and stopping. We will also work on passing in several of the drills… Goalie training continues centred on the faceoff circle or in the corner.


4 nets

2 PVC goalies

Wiffle balls

Blue pucks

Ringette rings

10 Tall pylons

10 pylons for start cones (to reduce the cheating up to the first pylon in drills – this is a problem in every hockey practice AND WE NEED TO TRY TO ELIMINATE IT SO THAT PLAYERS START THE DRILLS WITH SPEED!)

6  pipes (4  feet) for obstacles


WARM UP: Full ice skate with pucks trying to bounce pucks off the boards – goalies included.

NO SHOOTING ON NETS– put all nets in a tight square at centre ice



Goalie training at one end so caution – we will stop at the ringette line at that end.

–          Fast as you can there and back

–          Same side one foot push and glide there and back (using the other foot)

–          Forward legs together and apart ONE LENGTH

–          Forward two foot slalom ONE LENGTH (This will be hard for them)

–          Transition forward to backwards at every line ONE LENGTH

–          Stop and wave at every line there and back

–          Fast as you can there and back




6 SKILL DRILLS – assuming 36 players /6 = 6 players per station






NON GOALIE END – Two nets centred on the faceoff circles each with a PVC goalie (no stick)

a)      Move sideways around two obstacles and shoot on PVC goalie in nets centred on the faceoff circles. Note:  Use both nets each with a line of players with three horizontal pipes that force the players to go around them by deking sideways.

Vocab: “Decide which way you are going to deke around the pipe and then shoot on the goalie. Remember to shoot for the holes –  Not at the goalie.

b)      Skating around ringette rings between the blue and red lines (slow it down) working on cross overs both directions

Vocab: “Skate slowly and concentrate on crossing one leg over the other as you go around the ring”

c)       Skate through a straight line of  line of pylons (across ice on the red line)

Vocab: “Skate through the pylons as fast as you can. Try to take one step between the pylons so it will be push with your right foot…push with your left foot”


GOALIE END – one net available since goalie training is centred on the faceoff circle

d)      Partner pass and shoot on net (centred on the faceoff circle) with a PVC goalie in it. Two lines of players start at the red line  Vocab: “ Pass back and forth and then shoot on the goalie. Remember to shoot for the holes not at the goalie”

e)      Figure 8 skate around two ringette rings about 6 feet apart between the red and blue lines with a glide around the rings.

Vocab: “Skate around the rings in a figure eight path – glide around the rings. Push once between the pylons…Right foot push, glide, left foot push…glide”

f)       Two  player passing drill bouncing the puck off the boards around an obstacle

Vocab: “ Bounce the puck off the boards around the pylon to your partner. Keep your stick on the ice. Be gentle – make a soft pass.”


WRAP UP  4 net scoring using wiffle balls with instructors in net at centre ice.
