CARD 8b – GAME OF HANDBALL ON ICE

Using regular size nets and any of the D formations, players play games of Handball on ice. If the ball hits the ice, the other team gets possession. Rules may be modified to encourage skating, passing, teamwork, etc. For example: all players must handle the ball before a goal is counted. If available, use the ringette crease with only the goalie allowed in the crease. This game works all of the skating skills and helps the players develop split vision.
