Posted: March 11, 2014 in Uncategorized


FOCUS: Edge control and balance, Puck control, passing, skating backwards, OFF SIDES!


3 nets, Medium size pylons, Buckets, Blue pucks, 2 PVC goalies

Dog tennis balls, Mini basketballs and one basketball net, 4 Milk crates


WARM UP (Not much more than 5 minutes)

Stickhandling with tennis balls NO SHOOTING ON NETS SO TURN THE NETS TO THE BOARDS

 ALL IN (with pucks) (Shorter than normal)

  1. Fast as you can
  2. Chip and go
  3. Forward backward transition at each line
  4. Stop at each line
  5. Foot to stick to foot
  6. Fast as you can



  1. Net #1  Three on none with set up behind the net and pass out to the front (Red line to net with off sides called)

WE have done this a lot but it is a critical skill.

Vocab:  “ Watch the off sides, Remember one player goes behind the net and passes to one of the players out front. If you are in front of the net your stick should be on the ice ready to shoot and you should be turned ready to shoot.”

2. Net #2   Passing drill through orange buckets with side switch half way (Red line in to net with off sides called)

Vocab: “ This is a slightly different drill than last weekend. We will call off sides so remember “PUCK IN FIRST”. Pass to your partner through the gaps in the barrels at the pylon switch sides and continue.”

3. Basketball  (Centre ice)

Vocab: “This drill is about being able to change direction quickly. I will move the net around – good luck trying to get a basket!!”

4. Stickhandling through a straight pylon course (Down blue line)

Vocab: “THIS IS NOT A RACE – slow down and keep the puck under control. Remember to tilt your stick to cradle the puck. DEMO REQUIRED HERE”

5. Backward skating with lateral motion (Face off circle near goalie training)

Vocab: “Skate backwards  using “C” cuts and try to give one extra hard cut to one side. Stop then do the same thing but on the other side.”

6. Passing accuracy (side boards in goalie end)

Vocab: “Being able to pass to someone is very important. I want you to try to hit each of  the green bins from where you are.”

WRAP UP GAME: (Freeze tag – but unlikely there will be time)
