DT400 2 on 2 Support from Point 6 Players

Key Points:
With the same group I rotated who the first 2 attacked against so they were attacking and defending different players. We did this last game which gave point support to the attackers. Lots of low play and fighting for net presence.
Practice began with 10 min. of individual skill work where the players chose what they wanted to work on. After the drills and transition games we played rebound and finished with a change on the go shootout race.


Attackers create 2 on 1's, get open, screen, give target. Defenders stay D side, box out and tie up sticks on rebounds.
Point players can't jump in and only get one second with the puck and can only make one D to D pass.

Description:
A. 1 and 2 attack vs 3 and 4.
B. 5 and 6 support attackers from point.
C. 5 and 6 can make one pass and only have the puck one second.
D. On goal, frozen puck or transition 3 and 4 regroup thru middle dot and attack vs 5 and 6.
E. Option A. 1 and 2 support attack from the point.
F. Option B. 7 and 8 support and 1 and 2 rest.

E1 10 Puck 1-0 and 2-0 Shootout - College W

Key Points:
Allow only one or maybe two passes before shooting. Place 10 pucks on the blue line or
less if you don't have much time.

Description:
1. Players are on the bench and can't leave until the scorers get within one stick length
of the gate.
2. Race back to the bench hard to simulate changing on the fly.
3. Next two players go and pick up another puck from he blue line.
4. Goalie can shoot the puck away but keep it in the zone.
5. Losing team do something like skate or push ups for each goal they lose by.
6. In the 1-0 game only allow 1 to 3 tries and if they don't score put the puck back on the blue line and race to the bench.
7. In the 2-0 game also play the variation that each player must score one goal. You can also require a certain kind of shot, tip in, rebound etc. for one or two of the goals.

E1 - Shootout Contest Below the Goal Line

Key Points:
Players must walk out from below the goal line with power moves. Protect the puck and shoot high on butterfly goalies, to the far post on stand ups or through the legs on either style. Another option on a wrap around is to jam it inside the near post before the goalie gets across the net.

Description:
1. Players line up in each corner. The coach could put a glove or cone to mark where they can walk out.
2. Players carry the puck and either walk out or wrap around to score.
3. Alternate corners.
4. The player gets 30” to score 4 goals.
5. Players who don’t score 4 goals must skate down and back.
6. If the goalie allows a certain number of players to score 4 goals then he skates down and back at the end of the contest.
7. Alternative is to go one player at a time from alternate corners and keep score.

Thanks Tom,

Here's one for the collection. We use it 2 v 0 more than 1 v 0. I have a few more that I just learned...will put them into diagrams soon and submit them.

-------------------------------------------------

-Coaches have 10 pucks each

-Players skate around opposite net and come back to goal nearest their line.

-Both sides go at same time

-Players shoot, rebound, then pass to their line.

-Shots that miss net must be retrieved.

-New pucks handed out only after a goal

-First team to score 10 goals wins

-Can also be done 2 v 0

Dave
----------------------------
Dave, that is a good one and I will use it. Thanks for contributing.

T Teaching the Game on Ice

I have gone through the posting about how to teach the various playing roles during practice. This pdf combines the four game playing roles and various articles about what is important to coach and how to run effective teaching practices.

T is the code for on ice activities with a lot of instruction.

T1 - individual offensive skills.

T2 - team offensive skills.

T3 - individual defensive skills.

T4 - team defensive skills.

There are also some articles about evaluating play and how to organize the ice as well as drills and games from pro practices.

Here's another contest for end of practice. This one gets quite chaotic if you have a lot of players, and it's a lot of fun.
-----------------------------------------

5 Puck Full Ice Race:

-Players take push-up position facing red line.
-Coach puts 5 pucks across red line
-On whistle teams race to score goals at opposite end
-First team to score 3 wins
-Players can defend own net too
-Only one shot at a time on goalie
-Goalie must be ready

--------------------------------------
Dave that is another good one. Last week I did a multi puck game and didn't remind them about only one shot at a time assuming they remembered that rule. They didn't. So it is important to remind them.

MRC Cougar Hockey School on Ice Organization.

We divided the ice using rink pads. Most of the time we divided into 4 areas with 2 nets at each. Sometimes the pads were down the middle and it gave 2 full length areas. The video had Gaston teaching little kids skating using balls and pucks to get the feel of weight transfer. John C with game reading skills playing vs 2 nets at once. I teach some skills and have the instructors demo. This is sad to see because the little blonde instructor in the grey sweats was killed in a car accident last winter.

The idea is to teach a skill with demo and drills and then put the skill or team play concept into a skill game, game reading game or transition game situation.

There is a lot of room on the ice if the coaches use their imagination. There are 35-40 kid's on the ice in this video.

DT100 Continuous 2-1- 85er's

This is an 85 born team with Mason Raymond and Jeremy Colliton, who played in the NHL, Mason played in the 2018 Olympics and Jeremy now coaches. Ryan Duncan who won the Hobey Baker is also one of the players. Others like Aaron Lee had good pro careers in the minors and in Europe. All but one of these boy's played at least Jr. A. Many major jr. and many NCAA Div. 1.
I get chocked up thinking about these kid's because of what happened after the last tournament we played in Vancouver. I started to go around the room and shake their hands to say goodbye and good luck. Instead of shaking hands the first boy got up and hugged me and my assistant coaches and then the whole team did the same thing.
Great memory.


Key Points:
New players don't leave the line-up until the puck enters the offensive zone.
On dump outs no one change but go back and regroup with the same players. Changes occur when the puck is over the offensive blue line or controlled over the defensive blue line.

Description:
1. Attack 2-1 with D getting support from 2 F's and F's from one D.
2. Defending F1 support low to make it a 2-2 and F2 cover the point.
3. New offensive D join and play point.
4. On transition attack 2-1 thru nzone.
5. Continue flow with new O and D support.

-Continue the flow of 2-1 in nzone and 3-3 at each end.
-Dump-ins and regroups can be added.

-Continue the flow of 1-1 in nzone and 2-2 at each end.
-Dump-ins and regroups can be added.


- Youth teams usually have 4 to 6 defenseman, so do this once and then add players to improve the W/R ratio. 1-1 to 2-2, 2-1 to 3-3, 3-1 to 4-4, 2-2 to 4-4, 3-2 to 5-5. Also 1-2 to 3-3 and 2-3 to 5-5. Other options are to have the D join, or F join, or both a F and D join the next rush.

DT400 Attack-Defend-Breakout-Rest – U.S. College Players

Key Points:
The defenders have to clear the zone with control of the puck. With situations over a 3 on 3 I would move the resting players back to the far blue line. Left handed player in black sweats and hat is Dany Heatley just after he won NHL Rookie of the Year.

Description:
1. Players line up within a stick length of the red line if you have 2 groups or only ½ ice; otherwise behind the red or far blue line.
2. Three players attack three defenders.
3. Defenders must carry the puck out of the zone before passing to team waiting team mates.
4. Three new players attack vs the original offensive players.
5. Keep score, implement skill (only forehand passes) or team play rules (goals originate from below the goal line).

DT100 Continuous 2 on 2 to 4 on 4 - U18 M-F

Key Points:
Forwards cover D and D cover F's. One D should join the attack to create triangles. Defenders play tight gaps and attackers create 2 on 1's on the rush.

Description:
1. Forwards line up on one side and defense on the other.
2. Start with a 2 on 2 attack F1 and F2 vs D1 and D2.
3. When the puck enters the zone defensive F1 and F2 support D and attacking team D1 and D2 support F's.
4. Play 4 on 4 in the zone.
5. If the puck is dumped out with no possession the offensive team regroup and attack again.
6. The supporting players who joined the play now go 2 on 2 in the other direction.
7. F2 - F3 support D1 and D2 and D3 and D4 support attacking F1 and F2.

DT 400 Game of Quick Transition with Attack-Defend-Rest Rotation - Mike Johnston

Key Points:
Mike Johnston demonstrates a quick 3 on 3 transition game. It is similar to the Perry Pearn game but the emphasis is on quick transition and the offside rule and gaining the blue line first isn't stressed. This rotation can be used from 1-1, 1-2, 2-2. 3-2, 2-3 3-3, 4-3, 3-4, 4o-5, 5-4, 5-5, 6-5 to practice team play, especially if you have 15 or less skaters.

Mike explains the benefits of using transition games and suggests that only two colours be used at practice to enable more game like drills and games. Put half the D and half the F in one colour each. You can have more than two groups per team.

Description:
1. Players line up behind the red line with the defending team at the front of the line. Use two colours, i.e. white and blue.
2. Three whites attack vs. Three blue defenders.
3. After a goal, a puck frozen by the goalie or the defense gains possession pass to blue team mates at the red line.
4. Original white attackers defend vs the three new blue players and the original three blue defenders rest at the back of the line.


*This is a great rotation to practice team play.

The coach can change where the resting players line up and use the same rotation. The closer they are the quicker the transition, i.e. line up at the top of the circles. If the coach wants neutral zone play then move the line up back to the other end of the ice or behind the far blue line. Waiting at the red line allows the original attackers time to close the gap when they go onto defense.
It all depends on what the coach is trying to accomplish in this transition game rotation.
