IP1 Practice outline for the skaters who are working without buckets Merivale Arena  9- 2 Oct 29, 2016

Posted: October 29, 2016 in Uncategorized


Last week’s practice was good but I am still perplexed by two things:

  1. Some teams have no parent on the bench with water this is ahuge distraction since the players go to the main gate and parents come down to give them water – THIS HAS TO STOP!
  2. Some teams have no parent on ice. This is a lost opportunity to get a parent involved as a coach in the future.


Warm up skate:  Skate with wiffle balls

ALL IN – ONLY ¾ ice since orange buckets are at the other end

  1. Fast as you can x 2
  2. One foot push
  3. One foot glide at every line
  4. 1,2,3 glide …repeat


  1. Ringette ring skate inside the circle- Keep away  CIRCLE
  2. Fast shot competition with two lines and two small nets CIRCLE
  3. Stopping – THEY NEED TO BELIEVE THEY CAN TURN AND STOP so use their stick across their chest and have them pull the stick to 90 degrees BLUE LINE
  4. One foot push through off set pylons RED LINE

The emphasis is on their push with alternating feet and using their stick to pull them around the pylon

  1. Tire pull – Power! BLUE LINE

WRAP UP –  Rolling dodge ball
