CARD 51

LEVEL 2

LEARNING THE GAME

“NO-PASSING” GAME OF SHINNY WITH MANY PLAYERS

Play with large teams using “no-passing” rule. The player with the puck must try to score by stick- handling the puck through everyone. This game demands that each player practice the first playing role of the player with the puck, and move his or her feet, pivot, fake, drive-skate to open ice, etc.

GAME STRESSING THE SITUATION PLAYING ROLES

GAME-

D, 4 PLAYING ROLES

Play a game and remind the players that they always have something to do during a shift:

  • 1.

    Player with puck.

  • 2.

    Offensive player without puck.

  • 3.

    Defender covering puck carrier.

  • 4.

    Defensive player covering pass receiver.

When a “0” or loose-puck situation occurs the

players must consider whether they should think offence or defense first. Always protect against giving up odd-man rushes and give the first player to the puck close support for passes and defensive help.

LEVEL 2

LEARNING THE GAME

2-ON-2, 3-ON-3, FULL-ICE GAMES

D, 4 PLAYING ROLES

The best way of learning the 4 playing roles is to play 2-on-2 and 3-on-3 games. When playing these full-ice games the normal rules, such as offsides, are enforced. These games with 2 or 3 players on a side make it easy to isolate the individual or team- play skills that the coach wants to work on. The small groups keep all of the players actively involved and the coach can easily point out the techniques or tactics that are being done properly, as well as those that need to be worked on.

Organize by having the players line up along the boards in the neutral zone or sit in the players’ box. The shifts should be 30-40 seconds. Playing in small groups for 30-second shifts is a good way to practice sup- port on offence and defense. Another option is to have the players change on their own when the puck is deep in the offensive zone.
