IP2 Practice Outline Saturday Jan 25 Bell Arena 3-8

Focus area: The last two practices we have divided the players up into three groups based on their overall skating and worked on activities designed to improve different aspects of skating based on their current skill level. We did not spend as much time with pucks as we normally do and spent no time on anything to do with shooting. The direction we will be taking for the next few practices is probably obvious. We will focus on skating with a puck, passing and shooting.


Equipment requirements:

3 Standard nets (1 for goalie training, 2 at other end)

2 PVC goalies

12 Tall pylons

20 Ringette rings

30 Bike tires


4 Large tires


WARM UP (5 minutes): Skate with pucks inside the ringette lines. Must bounce it off the tires when they go by them


ALL IN (20 + minutes)

Go to centre button

Tornado skate 5 times around circle STOP switch direction


Spread out players on the side board on one side from ringette line to ringette line  – team does not matter

  1. Fast as you can across the ice NO PUCKS
  2. Fast as you can across the ice and back pushing the puck with a stop at the boards and return
  3. Stick handle across the ice and back with a stop at the boards and return
  4. Skate across the ice and bounce the puck off the boards and return

Each team on their own side of the rink (spread out from ringette to ringette line)

Activity 1  Pivot with a puck both ways around an object placed 3 feet out from the boards (use ringette rings as the obstacle)

Vocab: “Let your stick do most of the work, Tilt your stick so the puck stays on it”

Activity 2 Stick handle inside a bike tire

Vocab: “ Go slowly and move the puck around inside the tire. For now keep your eyes on the puck.    SWITCH SIDES SO THEY CAN DO BOTH DRILLS

4 Stations ( 5 minutes each)

  1. Ringette ring drop (sort of based on our tap, tap, tap, go drill) Between the blue line and ringette line in the goalie training end

Players partner up behind their own tires which are on the ringette line and the blue line. Rings start on one tire. Player 1 skates to the opposite tire but in the middle they are met by their partner (player 2) who takes the ring from them as they drop it off and both continue to the other tires going around them and exchanging again in the middle. Eventually we will do this with pucks but for now rings work better.

 Vocab: “Keep your head up, look at the person you are passing to.”

2. Stick handle through 6 tall pylons  (Use two lines of pylons to avoid lineups and the pylons should be arranged on either side of the red line in groups of three  ie space to gain speed 3 pylons, gain speed, three pylons and return. Leave room for the next drill at the opposite end of the red line. Vocab: “Tilt your stick so you don’t lose it as you move around the pylons”

3.OFFSIDES! Players go in as a group of two starting at the red line and going in to shoot on net which is off to the side. While this will involve passing and shooting it is really about offsides.

Vocab: “PUCK IN FIRST” is the simple way to teach offsides. Novice coaches will love you if you get them to clearly understand this concept!!!

4. Passing and eventually shoot on net.  Instructors are the active quarterback “partners” who skate with them as a pair  telling players where and  which shot to take.

Vocab: “Listen to me – together we are going to score on this guy. “


FINAL GAME  “Bet you can’t get the puck past me!

 Players line up on the blue line and try to shoot the pucks past the instructors who are on the red line. Instructors when they stop the puck slowly send it back to them. No rewards for getting it past them!!
