Hockey Coaching ABCs

LEVEL 2

LEARNING THE GAME

FULL-ICE

SMALL

AND

MODIFIED

GAMES

D, ORIENTATION

Play full-ice micro games of 1-on-1, 2-on-2, 3-on-3 to practice the 4 playing roles in the defensive,neu- tral and offensive zones. Use modified rules to cre- ate the situations that you want the players to practice. These rules can be designed to practice good habits (always face the puck), develop skills (only wrist passes are allowed) or team-play con- cepts (2 points for a goal scored from a play origi- nating below the goal line encourages offensive cycling and low defensive coverage).

LEVEL 2

LEARNING THE GAME

A HALF-ICE GAME WITH BOTHTEAMS

SHOOTING ON 1 GOAL

D, ORIENTATION

Play a half-ice game using any number of players. Individual skills can be isolated in a 1-on-1 game. All of the 4 roles are practiced in a 2-on-2 game. Defensive and offensive triangles are used in a 3-on-3 game and a box offence and defense on a 4-on-4 game. 5-on-5 has all of the team-play com- ponents. All even- and odd- numbered situations like the power play or the 6-on-5 can be practiced.

Some methods of transition from defense to offence are:

  • All players must get onside and the puck carrier must touch the red line before attacking.

  • All players must touch the puck before scoring.

  • Pass to new players who are waiting in the neutral zone to attack, either against the original attackers or

new defenders.

USING THE SPACE AND OBSTACLE COURSES

GAMES AND EXTRA EQUIPMENT

Small nets, boards to divide the rink, old tires for targets, bars to jump over or skate unde , balls and other obstacles are excellent aids to practice hockey skills. Create circuits that use this kind of equipment in order to practice skills.
