BASIC SKILLS: PASSING

The players line up facing each other parallel to boards. This formation allows them to learn pass- ing skills.Teach the 4 phases of passing:

  • 1.

    Wind up.

  • 2.

    Force production by weight transfer from

back to forward.

  • 3.

    Release.

  • 4.

    Follow through at the target.

Passes should be disguised within the stickhandling motion and wrist passes should be used. Listen to make sure that the puck isn’t slapped, and the pass receiver has soft hands to receive the pass.

BASIC SKILLS: PASSING

  • Keep the stick on the ice and square to the puck to take a pass. Keep the hands relaxed and give with the puck. The players should wrist pass by bringing the puck back for a windup and rolling the wrists as they do when shooting a wrist shot. The passes should be quiet, no slapping noise or banging when they take the pass.

  • Forehand passing with a partner.

  • Backhand passing with a partner.

  • Practice eye contact between the passer and the receiver by passing 3-4 pucks across to different players in the opposite line. Make sure there is eye contact before passing.

LEARNING THE GAME

PLAYING ROLES 1 AND 3 IN PRACTICE

A cross-ice game of 1-on-1 is the simplest and best way to teach the role of the puck carrier (number 1) and the checking player (number 3) in practice. The player either attacks or defends dur- ing a 1-on-1 game and the transition from defense to offence and vice-versa is automatically experi- enced. The players are organized in pairs and play a cross-ice game for 1 minute. When the game ends the players on 1 side of the ice move down 1 goal, with the last player moving to the empty goal at the other end. Play 1 game against each player on the other side of the rink; the players keep track of their wins, losses and ties.
