Practice outline for IP2 Saturday Oct 11 Merivale  9 – 1

Oct 11 IP2 Merivale 9 – 1 (7)

For this practice I would like to again target two important foundational skills (backward skating  and stopping) with LOTS OF HANDS ON INSTRUCTION. Things will be a lot easier if we can get our Timbits to the point they can stop and skate backwards.

WARM UP – skate with pucks – New instruction – they must bounce the pucks off the tires  (NO nets)

Passing is great but I really want them to learn to keep the puck under control and REACT TO THE CHANGE OF DIRECTION OF THE PUCK AS IT BOUNCES OFF THE TIRE.

ALL IN at one end (shorter time – since we are having 6 stations)

  1. Fast as you can there and back
  2. Stop at every line facing the stands there and back
  3. Fall at every line there and back
  4. Feet together and apart there and back
  5. One foot push there and back (alternate push coming back)

6 stations  (approximately 6 players per station and about 5 minutes per station)

  1. ONE TIMER SHOT ON NET (NO GOALIE)

Location: Cross ice inside the ringette line.

Goal: To have players move to the puck, maintain balance and take a shot

VOCAB: “This is your big chance to score! I will pass the puck to you and I want you to shoot the puck as soon as you get it.”

  1. SKATE FORWARD AGAINST RESISTANCE

Location: Cross ice between the ringette line and the blue line

VOCAB: “In order to get power in your skating you have to do three things:  bend your knees, dig your edges in and push hard. I want you to push your tire across the ice using I WANT TO HEAR YOUR EDGES!”

  1. STOPPING BOTH SIDES ONE FOOT

I really want precise one on one instruction.

Location: Up and down the ice between the red line and blue line.

VOCAB: “Funny thing …..you need to skate fast to learn to stop!!! “(Note: This is super important.) “There are TWO PARTS TO A STOP: Turning sideways and sliding  and digging your edge in to stop the slide….I want you to stop by turning your body to the side and sliding sideways. You need to dig your edge in to help you stop. You will find it easier to do this if you lift your back foot.”

 

  1. PARTNER BACKWARD SKATING

I really want precise one on one instruction.

Location: Cross ice between the blue line and red line

VOCAB: “ Last Saturday you all improved but we still have work to do. I want you to skate backwards using  C cuts but I want you to try something new . I want you to pull your partner using the hoola hoops.  Keep your head up… keep your “tail out”.

Note IDEALLY we want them to get to the point they do a C cut with a tail but first we need them to generate backwards power using the C cut.

 

  1. PARTNER PASSING AND SHOT ON NET WITH GOALIE

Location: Across the ice between the blue line and ringette line

Goal: To develop passing skills and especially the concept of using the pass to “lead” a player.

VOCAB: “Form two lines. I want you to pass between the orange buckets to your partner and then shoot on the net. Make sure you pass the puck IN FRONT of your partner so they can skate up to it.”

 

  1. STICK HANDLING TRANSITIONING , BOUNCE OFF THE BOARDS

Location : Along the boards inside the ringette line  inside the ringette line

VOCAB: “In hockey we use terms like soft and hard. Your hands are “soft” because you can control them and your stick is “hard”. All this really means is that your hands control your stick. In order to stick handle, make a pass or receive one you need to be able to “cushion” the puck so it doesn’t bounce off your stick. Stick handle and then pick a spot on the boards and bounce the puck off it , recover it and do it again.”

WRAP UP GAME: GET THE PUCK PAST THE INSTRUCTORS (HOPEFULLY WE WILL HAVE TIME!!!

Instructors line up on the blue line (one side)

Players are all on one side of the ice with LOTS OF PUCKS and cannot cross the red line. They try to shoot pucks past the instructors who must stay on the ringette line. When instructors stop the pucks they  GENTLY dump them back into the other end.
