I watched PeeWee U 12 practice last night, and the Coaches ran a great practice. Lots of transition drills, the kids were having a great time, and the Coaches seemed very relaxed, compared the ther Bantam practice that was going on next door. Have a look at the PDF of one of the transition drills they ran, I wish I could explain it better, the kids sure knew how it was run.

Peter,

A nice variation of the 15 goal drill. I'd have F2 finish with the 1 vs 0/1, instead of F3. This would allow the F's to rotate through all the positions: F3 to F1, F1 to F2, and F2 to F3. Many attack variations--D's could join the rush as opposed to back checking.

Thanks for the contribution.

One of my friends was just appointed as the Head Coach of a IIHF third division country. They will be in the world championships for their group in the spring. He has never been a head coach before but was a long time captain of the team and asked me to give him some team play ideas. I have put together links to the type of systems that I like to use. I am not a big 1-2-2 fan and instead use a forecheck that has worked a lot better for me and the one we used when I was with the Red Bulls in Austria.

Oldrich Jindra just posted a youtube video of drills from where I coached in Salzburg, Austria. They are pretty good. First one is on the outdoor rink which is a great place to run a practice on a nice day.

I am starting to work on the shooting and scoring section of the Swedish material. It starts with the concept that the 'puck has eyes' and illustrates the 'Five Scoring Areas' that work very well vs. a stand-up goalie. They are now a rare breed. Another Swede Thomas Magnusson gave a great presentation at an IIHF coaching symposium that I attended in Heidelberg, Germany 2010. He outlines how to score vs. the modern day goalie and where the goals come from. Only the Swedes and Finns study the game with such detail.

DT4-Jokers at Point and Below Goal Line - Czech Youth

Key Points:
Regroup and get open. Defender go from role 3 to 4 and attacker from role 1 to 2.
Great game for transition between all 4 game playing roles.

Description:
1. Play from 1-1 to 3-3 with one joker at the point and one below the goal line.
2. When defender gets the puck he must regroup with joker at the point and a play to the low joker must be made before a shot can be taken.
3. Joker to joker passes are ok.
4. Point shots are ok after a pass to the low joker has been made.
