Can you recommend some good games that would help our Pee Wee's with the following scenario?
Transition from O to D, then back checking into DZC.
In particular, our team is struggling in DZC when the attacking players have all collapsed low into the scoring area and they may have two players cycling the puck below the goal line. We need to do better job of picking up a man and tying up sticks.
For these kids it's a different scenario than defending when the attacking teams's D men stay high. That's the typical DZC we've practiced so far, but the game isn't always played like that at this level.
We played the first place team in the league today and lost 3-1. Two of the goals against happened during times of confusion in front of our net.
