Practice Using Many Nets, Puck, Balls

We use 4 small nets and 2 regular sized nets in the hockey class I do. They are great as obstacles and goals for SAG's.


I did a camp in Jihlava, Czech Republic and we used 4 nets for the drills and games with youth and U20 players.

I took this video when various international U20 teams were practicing during the 2012 IIHF World U20 Championships in Calgary. Winsport has 4 rinks and there usually were 4 countries having practice at the same time. European teams use games to warm-up and to practice skills much more than we do in North America.
-------------------------------------------------------------

D4 One Zone Game - Slovakia U20

Key Points:

‘The Game is the Greatest Coach.’
Play in one zone and practice working together. Use various rules. In the video they are playing 'One Pass.'

Description:

1. Game is in one zone and if the puck goes over the blue line the other team gets it.
2. Puck changes possession on a goal or a frozen puck.
3. Transition to offense by making at least one pass before you can shoot.
4. Use modified rules such as: one pass, two passes, only forehand, only backhand, goals only on one touch shots, two touch or two seconds with the puck, puck carrier must make an escape move, goals must originate from the point, goals must originate from below the goal line, only one pass allowed, only certain kinds of shots like a backhand or slap shot, etc..

Owling 'Principles of the Attack in the Offensive Zone'

This is a great presentation put together by Rob Serviss.

“Owling”

The Art of Offensive Zone Movement

By: Robb Serviss Dutch U20 Head Coach

Read & React
Head on a Swivel
“Communicate”
Open your eyes!

Owling

Definition:

1)The offence of transporting wool or sheep out of the kingdom contrary to the statute formerly existing.
2)The offence was usually carried on at night-time, when the owls were abroad
3)Smuggling wool or sheep (“pulling the wool over someone’s eyes”)
•Offensive system of transporting the puck in the offensive zone connecting the two large cycling zones using behind the net

Basic Characteristics of an OWL

•Owls are active at dusk/dawn and quiet in daytime.
•A group of owls is called a parliament.
•Owls have very expressive body language (bob & weave head)
•B & W improves their 3-D viewing
•Attacking owl becomes slim and pulls feathers tightly to body
•An Owl hunts by stealth, taking their victims by surprise
•Sleath-like dynamics when attacking (can’t be heard)
•“Hooting” is communication method for territorial
•Forward facing eyes gives “wisedom” appearance
•Binocular vision (3-D: height, width & depth)
•Excellent at judging distances
•Big eyes improve efficiency under low light conditions
•Flexible neck allows for head to turn 270 degree

Key Characteristics

•Soft, fringed feathers for silent flight while hunting
•Night-vision eyes & 3-D hearing
•Head swivels 270 degrees
•“Satellite dish”face for picking up faint sounds
•Sharp beak & talons for killing/tearing prey
•Two attacking methods:
–perch & pounce
–quartering flights

Hockey / Owling Translation

•Head on a Swivel (270 degrees)
•Talk to each other, communicate (Hooting)
•Read & React (3-D Vision & Hearing)
•Senses in Dead Zones (Night vision)
•Cycling / Reverses / Screens (Sleath-like attack)
•Head / Shoulder Fakes & Dekes (Bob & Weave)
•Element of Surprise:Eyes (Wisdom appearance)
•See the Game (Binocular Vision)

Hockey Skills

? 4 North / South lanes
? 2 East / West lanes
? Night vision in DEAD ZONES
? Beak is Sharp & Deadly!
? Bob & Weave is Deking
? Binocular behind the goal
? F3 can perch & pounce (Aggressive)
? F3 quartering flights (Patient)
? D uses Sleath features on penetration

Great diagrams in the PDF.

We did this game in practice last night and it created great low battles needing quick escape moves and the defenders learning how to see the puck and their check when the puck is low. It also created a lot of back door plays.This transferred to skills needed with the Spread PPlay using the two low attackers below the goal line. I saw this set up used while coaching in Austria and it is very hard to cover because backs tend to get turned and cross ice passes for one timers and back door walk-outs are very hard to handle for the pk.

D4 Two Active Jokers Behind the Net

Key Points:

Jokers must learn to protect the puck and make plays on their own or passes. Everyone learns to play low in the zone on offense and defense.

Description:

1. Each team has two low jokers.
2. Jokers can check Jokers.
3. Jokers can score.
4. Jokers can skate out to the face-off lines.
5. Jokers must touch the puck to score.
6. Jokers rotate on their own.
7. Vary between 1 or 2 Jokers and 1 to 4 out players.

A400 - Puck Handling Skills 4 Lanes – Pro

Key Points:


Practice various puck handling moves or skating skills. Add shots at the end of the lanes or obstacles to go around, under, over or through.

Description:

4 Lane Flow

Players who start at the inside lanes go.

- inside to outside behind net to far outside and back inside and back to line.

Players who start in outside lanes go.

Mission Impossible

* You can also make this into “Mission Impossible” where the players do tasks like skating through obstacles, they must score, jump over, slide under, stickhandle through a maze of pucks etc. If they fail they must go back to where they started and do it again. You give a time limit and half go and half are judges or the coaches can judge..

Advanced Practice Ideas

For the coaches who come here for ideas and coach the higher levels I have made a folder in my Dropbox with advanced practice ideas from pro, international teams, U17 and up. It can be accessed at.


www.dropbox.com/sh/7h39orthmw850em/AACp82mJyd0qVG9ATTqd6M-fa?dl=0

-------------------------------
I also have attached a picture and short bio of the staff I was lucky enough to coach with in Salzburg, Austria. We shared the same large coaching room where we had our own computers with the Steva program to break down the games for seven months. It also had a Red Bull fridge full of the product and Carpe Diem which is another drink they make that is incredibly refreshing but only available in Europe. We had lots of great discussions.

I met Jursinov 15 years before with Juhani Wahlsten and we did some clinics together in Finland. I was his guest coach for a few practices with TPS, Tuku. He came one week a month to run skills practices and would get me to give him English lessons when he was there.

I teach a school hockey class for the HC Skills program. The players come to COP which may be the best practice facility in the world. It is where Hockey Canada is based and has 3 practice rinks and one 4000 seat arena. They get 50 one hour ice times each school year. It costs them about $800 for the program which includes a bus taking them to practice and back to school. I have been doing it since returning from Austria. This year it is a very young group.
----------------------------------

D2-D200 Five Cross-ice Games at Once

Key Points:
Play games with modified rules to isolate skills. Use regular and small nets.

Description:

1. Stagger 5 big or small nets across from each other.
2. When everyone is playing the rule is they must bounce the puck off the far boards to go onto offense.
3. Also play with the attack-defend-pass- rest and the defense passes to players waiting at the far boards.

* Change the rules, use different kinds of pucks and balls and play even and odd number situations.

* D200 1 on 1 game, where a team mate waits for a pass to go on offense is a fantastic way to practice stick handling. The play offense-defense-pass-rest and then on offense again.

The major obstacle in most sports is that there is no consistent curriculum with a 'scope and sequence' to develop the skills, habits and game understanding to be effective players. Juhani Wahlsten and I developed this sequential program (with lots of input from the great Russian coach Vladimir Jursinov and Finnish Olympic coach Erkka Westerlund) and put it together for the Austrian Hockey Association and as a supplement to the program in Finland. The idea of this site is to continually update the material as the game changes and new practice and team play ideas are developed. Below is the original program plus links to pdf's with hundreds of new drills, games and team play ideas from all over the hockey world.

The two themes of our ABC's of International Hockey program are:

'Enjoy the Game"


"The Game is the Greatest Coach"


The entire curriculum was developed with these two themes in the forefront.


The ABC's of International Hockey Curriculum - Beginner to Pro


ABC's of International Hockey Level 0-1


www.hockeycoachingabcs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?showtopic=6996&topic=6996#6996

To supplement Level 0-1 these levels take drills and games coded: A1, A2, A200, B1, D2, D200, D3, D300, D4, D400, D5, D500, E1. From the Dropbox link below.

DT400 Quick Transition Game - U15

Key Points:
Players must quickly transition between the 4 game playing roles.

Offense:
Role 1. Puck carrier.
Role 2. Support puck carrier.


Defense:
Role 3. Check puck carrier.
Role 4. Cover away from the puck.


Description:

1. Play 2 on 2 to focus on transition between the four game playing roles.
2. Extra players wait at the blue line or to create a tight area game at the top of the circles.
3. Attack and try to score.
4. On a goal, frozen puck or turn-over the defending team pass to waiting teammates.
5. New offensive players attack vs. the players who lost the puck on offense.
6. Players who passed now rest.

* Keep score and have tournaments.

* Any number from 1-1 to 5-5 can be used.

* Move the waiting players to reduce or expand space.

* Modified rules can be used to focus on individual or team skill.
