Objectives:

  • To develop the skater’s ability to perform front and back crossover turns.

  • To familiarize coaches and players with the various on-ice formations, through the use of many games.

  • In these games the coach can require them to do skating exercises like: only backward or flat footed skating are allowed or they must perform a tight turn when they get the puck. This gives the players the opportunity to do the skills under game pressure.

CARD 16b – BACKWARD BALANCE

Have all players perform the following skating exercises using formation A2:

  • Forward skate with extra long strides. Knees bent, back slightly forward, head on top of shoulders.

  • Backward skate one length of the ice. Seat down, knees bent, head up and long strides.

  • Backward skating one knee up between the blue lines.

  • Backward skating with deep squats between blue lines.

  • Backward skating with a deep squat at each line.

  • Skate forward and make a high two footed jump over each line.

CARD 25b – PLAYING WITH 2 PUCKS

Playing with 2 pucks has the same basic purpose in the system as all multi-puck games. The goalie puts the puck back into play after a goal. A good technique is to give a point to the team that scores two goals. Playing with two pucks at more advanced levels is a good read and react exercise when you play situations such as 3-on-3.

CARD 17 - MANEUVERABILITY

Have all players perform the following skating exercises using formation A2:

  • Spread out around the ice and walk around a partner one way and then the other.

  • Skate around the same partner by using crossovers. These are done by sitting low and turning the shoulder first. The outside leg steps over the inside leg and lands on the inside edge. The inside skate pushes under with the outside edge causing the skater to lean into the turn.

  • Circle a partner one way and then the other.

  • Return to the A2 position on the goal line and skate to the other end in groups. Turn a big circle in each zone, first one way and then the other. Keep the head up to avoid running into other skaters.

  • Skate forward doing a figure eight in the neutral zone.

  • Skate forward doing a figure eight on each side of the red line.
