Tonight we have invited a different Calgary team in our league to do a team play scrimmge together. I have asked them to wear white. We have a 90 minute ice time.
10 min. warm up
12 min. Chaos 5-4
12 min. Flyers 5-4
12 min. Chaos 5-3
12 min. Flyers 5-3
12 min 5-5
6 min. Chaos 6-5
6 min. Flyers 6-5
8 min. Penalty Shots as done in a Shoot Out with the goalie on the line and starting on the whistle. (I have had goalies tell me that in a real shoot out they are not used to leaving the goal line and coming out and sometimes they get lost - so practice like it really happens.)
The time keeper resets the clock and starts each segment right away. The first 3 min. are at the bench and 9 min. to do the situation. 2 min. at the bench on 6-5. Keep score on the clock.
This gives the Chaos an extra practice and we get one when they reciprocate.
In our last scrimmage vs the Bruins we didn't do 6-5 and 5-6. We haven't done 4-4, 4-3, 3-4, 3-3 yet but have had each situation in our games so far this season. So those situations will be on the agenda the next time we scrimmage a team.
One of my players has a brother playing Bantam AAA and they want to do the same kind of scrimmage with us. I think that would be a lot of fun and really challenge the boy's to create good angles and the girl's to have perfect technique.
I have also discussed having a little Perry Pearn tournament with the Bruins coach. We would divide out teams in half and each team wear a different colour. Warm up together and then play 3 games with a ref and a score keeper.
