[click the PLAY button above to see the drill in full animation]

Objective:

 Tape to Tape Passes on the breakout

Key Elements

 Passing/Receiving, Communication, Skating , Positioning with Good Support/Target, Passing while in motion

Organization

 this can be used as a full ice or half ice drill. In each end two groups of players in line between the hash marks and the goal line with pucks. one side starts with the first player skating with a puck behind the net to make a tape to tape pass to the first player in the opposite line on the other side. as that player recieves the puck he takes off skating to the back of the net to make the same pass to the next player ont he opposite side as this is a continous drill.

Variations

You can tweek the drill with a slightly different variation as the season progress just to keep it fresh. Some days the passes have to be tape to tape and some times flip passes, board passes or rims for the wings to work on taking the puck off the boards. Lots of variations to keep the players interested.
