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

Objective:

Promote Fun and skills while warming up.

Key Elements

Skating, Passing/Receiving, Puck protection, Puck Support, Communication

Organization

Using one third of the ice the coach places two nets on the boards. The players can play 3-on-3, 4-on-4 or even 5-on-5. The coach calls out the signals and the rules of the game as they change. For example: the coach will declare that only backhand passes and backhand shots are allowed. After awhile the coach can declare only flip passes and wrist shots. The next time he might declare only backward skating. Be creative and challenge your players.

Variations

Be creative and challenge your players.
