Dean and I were watching and at first it looked like the power play as it was 5-4 and then we realized a coach was playing to make it 5-5 and we figured out what the game was. We don't know the practice plan and the camera picks up our conversation.

I have posted this quick up passing drill before but without a video. I like to use it for good habits like passing while moving, giving a target, attacking quickly. The video has the 1-0 and 2-0. You need about 20 skaters to do the 3-0 because it there isn't very much waiting in line. I picked this up from American coach Gene Reilly when I was coaching for the Red Bulls.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

B6 1-0, 2-0, 3-0 Small Horseshoe

Key Points:
This is a great timing drill with good flow for early in the practice. Pass hard and get your
top hand away from your body. Call for the pass. Give your stick and skates as a target.

Description:
1. Skate to the top of the circle and pass.
2. Continue and get a pass from the other end.
3. 2-0 first player passes and swings wide and second player skates into the middle
lane. Pass to the player in the middle.
4. Player in the middle one touch the puck up to the wide man. Stay onside.
5. Shoot and go for the rebound.
6. On the 3-0 the third player goes up the boards and enters as the high man. Add a
trailer pass to the high man as the first shot.

I was going from rink to rink in the 4 rink complex at Canada Olympic Park. Every rink had a different team practicing. Sometime I was with other coaches and sometimes alone. The audio often has me trying to figure out what the team is doing in the drill or game. In this game it looked like three groups rotating at the start but after a while I realized they were playing Shinny with no rules or if they had any skill rules I couldn't tell. I often have my teams or skill groups play but most of the time have rules like one touch in each zone or 2" with the puck only or a stickhandling game like - you can't pass until you cross a blue line and if you get a pass in the offensive zone you can't pass but must try to score.
So anyway the Russians were playing shinny and they seemed to do this as a cooldown activity and usually ended with a shootout.
--------------------------------------------------

D1 Shinny – Russian U20

Key Points:
Everyone plays at once. No offsides and no rules accept good sportsmanship. Great for developing puck handling skills and recovery after a hard practice.

Description:
This is the Russian U20 team playing shinny at the end of two practices. Everyone plays including the coaches and the extra goalie. They played shinny at every practice. The players enjoyed the games and it was a very different atmosphere than the North American practices which were so military with whistles all of the time, coaches barking and making many passes in command style, coach centred sessions.

Hockey seemed like a Game at the Russian and other European practices and a Job at North American sessions.

Tom,

It was like kids (coaches) in a candy store at the COP rinks, wasn't it! Very neat to be able to "rink-hop" from 1-4 and see various teams / nationalities / approaches in action - all at the same age category (with the "supposed" best coaches in charge of their respective teams!)

Shinny definitely has it's place in hockey but it seems long gone. Outdoor ice, depending on climate, is becoming more scarce here in Calgary. Many rinks have disappeared entirely and now, most of the "X-Box generation" stay at home - playing it on TV.

I like adding the odd rules to the Shinny games (stupid adult coach that I am... ruining a perfectly good game of kids shinny, eh?) to help them learn too. But time and place, coaches... right?

Your final quote about the difference between the European and NA sessions really hit home. It certainly did look more business-like for the NA teams. Part of the reason was the amount of media coverage / closeness to home for Canada and USA; but even if the event was in Europe (drawing nowhere near the fans for this level!), the NA teams would still appear to be more under the media microscope.

A300 Before and After Practice Individual Skills - Russian U20

I thought coaches may be interested in the parts of practice where Russian players practice skills on their own. Even a Russian legend is out there with his shoes on.

They love the game and enjoy themselves.

Drill and Game PDF's: All of the drills and game practice PDF's are organized with the ABC coding system along with an explanation of the codes. I update the folder with the new material:

Juhani Wahlsten designed the coding system so it is easy to find drills and games because they are classified according to what kind of skill, where the players stand on the ice and whether it is an individual, partner, team play, game, transition game, goalie activity etc. Otherwise a coach has all kinds of drills on sheets of paper that he has to look through all of the time to find something. All of the diagrams use International Symbols which give consistency and coaches from around the world can understand the diagram whatever language they speak. There are nearly 500 ideas so far.

D4 Two Pass – Swiss U20

Key Points:
My favorite game to warm-up the players at the start of practice. The quicker they make the passes after regaining the puck the more scoring chances they produce. This video shows the Swiss U20 Team playing 2 Pass as a warm-up.

Description:
1. Players must stay inside the blueline and if they puck goes out the other team gets it.
2. Before scoring the offensive team must make at least two passes.
3. When the defenders regain the puck they must make at least two passes before a shot.
4. Make rules with skills for skating, shooting, passing or good habits. So the game is a template to either use as itself or modify rules to cause the players to do skills or moves within a game situation.

* I add skill rules such as one touch passing, goals on one timers, only back hand passes, only forehand passes, goals must result from plays below the goal line, maximum two seconds with the puck, maximum one second with the puck, goals must result from plays from the point, you must make an escape move before passing, etc. Whatever you want the players to work on within a game situation can be the rule modification for 2 pass.

There was confusion on the date of the Spin Class and no instructor was there. The players took control and instead of going home they warmed up with a few laps around the track, did core exercises with each player leading one and then Kiera, an assistant captain took the leader bike, mike and music and led a 30 minute spin session.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Swedish Ice Hockey Association has a website with great drills and games. I am going through them and doing diagrams of the drills. Coaches can go to the link for the site to watch them. They are very well done. A lot better than I can do with my camera. The videos have more than one drill but I am sure the coaches that come here are smart enough to figure that out.
---------------------------------------------------

C500 - 1-1 in Front and Support at Point and Behind - Sweden

Key Points:
The most dangerous attacker is in front of the net. Play 2-1 but really a 2-2 as the goalie takes the shooter and defender denies the pass. Seal the stick to the outside on the shot and tie up the stick and then look for the rebound after the shot.

Description:
1. Coach has the pucks and passes to either the point or behind the net.
2. Players at point and behind can only shoot or pass.
3. Defender deny pass to the player in front and rebound goals.
4. Repeat about three times.

E1 Shootout – Russian U20

Key Points:
Goalie play it like a regular shootout and leave from the goal line to get used to coming out and then timing the skating back with the shooters speed. Shooter make the goalie move and ‘shoot where he is coming from and not where he is going.’ Remember that under the crossbar is always a good shot; as Glen Hall said, “there is no one up there.”

Description:
Shootout competition.

The pucks are in the middle and each player gets one shot vs. each goalie with the team that scores the most goals the winner. Players leave from diagonal corners.

In this video of the Russians the losing team had to walk on their knees from the blue to the red line.
