Nice drill. Simple, yet effective. I would be tempted to have D-Men use this at practice with some degree of frequency. First you have a shot from the top followed by a skating/receive pass/ pass maneuver that could mimic a Regroup or even a Break Out. All shots after that could be one-timers. You could easily add going D to D on the pass up top, followed by a one-timer or even have D-1 walk the puck down to the 1/2 wall and then set up D2 for a clean one. I need to invite this Dukla group over to my house for about a year or so, until I can finish picking their brains.

B300 Practice Stations-Skill-Games-HC Dukla Jihlava

Key Points:
Coaches progress from stationary technique instruction to cross ice movement doing the skills.
When insrtucting shooting, insist that they follow the shot for a rebound.

Description:
1. Ice is divided into cross ice stations with a coach at each station.
2. This formation can be used for skating, passing, shooting, checking or any technique.

4. Games can also be played cross ice or at one net.

hockeycoachingabcs.com/mediagallery/media.php?f=0&sort=0&s=20100830110013788

I used this stations practice formation for the first part of most on ice sessions. The group was from 8-14 years and we divided them into age and skill groups. One coach at each group reviewed what we had done off ice or in previous practices. This is a great formation to utilize the ice for giving instruction in small groups and progressing from static to moving to games. We progressed from skating to puck handling, to shooting, to passing.

C3 - 2 on 1 Situation - Both Directions - Pro

Key Points:
This formation can be used for situations from a 1-1 to a 3-2.
Attackers make the first pass early when they gain the zone.
Defender deny breakaways and lateral passes in the scoring area.
Follow shots for the rebound.
Attacking 2 on 1 remember the principle; "One high, one low, one fast, one slow."

Description:
1. D passes to F1. F1 and F2 skate laterally and exchange the puck.
2. Defender close the gap and stay between the attackers.
3. Go the other direction when the puck crosses the blue line.

hockeycoachingabcs.com/mediagallery/media.php?f=0&sort=0&s=20090818155501847
hockeycoachingabcs.com/mediagallery/media.php?f=0&sort=0&s=20090812173648952

If you want to progress to a transition game you could do the following.

a. Do the 2 on 1 drill above.
b. Change the drill to a transiton with passive support by having the next 2 forwards and the defender follow the play into the zone (instead of crossing and passing with a new puck) and wait above the circles.
c. The attackers try to score after the original rush and the defender work to make a breakout pass.
d. On a frozen puck or a goal the goalie is unopposed and makes a breakout pass to the 2 F's at the top of the circle and a new 2-1 starts.
E. Next progression is to have F3 backcheck deep to turn the 2-1 to a low 2-2 while the other F and new D are passive above the circles. On the breakout F3 joins the rush.
F. The last progression is for everyone to be active and F3 covers low and F4 covers the D2 at the point who is now part of the attack. The flow continues with F3 and F4 attacking the other way vs. D2.

So you will have progressed from a
1. situation 2-1 drill
2. to a transition game with passive support
3. to a transition game with both passive and active support
4. to a transtion game with active support.

Additional options are to add drump ins and regroups.

This is the same drill as the last posting but I am focusing on the forecheck. It is a combination of the Torpedo and left wing lock but has some basic principles. A. There are always 4 on the strong side with 3 forechecking and the LD supporting. B. There is always a player on the weak side to back door, one time shoot or pass across to change sides on the attack. C. Players are accountable to cover if they count 4 in front of them or 3 already attacking on the strong side. D. The weak side LW or RD must read that there is danger of a turnover and drop back. E. Everyone backchecks hard thru the middle on turnovers.

This is an effective way to practice team play. The attacking D plays defense vs the next 5 attackers.
------------------------------------------------------------

C3 - 5 on 2 Forecheck - 4 Attack

Key Points:
Overload the strong side with one player on the weak side for a one- timer or to change sides.

Description:
Forecheck
1. Overload on the strong side.
2. Three F's on the left side and RD on weak side.
3. C, RW and RD overload right side, LW on weak side.
4. RD and LW must read and drop back if turnover is possible.

Puck Handling Instruction Using Demonstration, Individual Practice and Small Area Games

In this video the players are instructed in the Russian Puck Handling Routine, they go into small groups to practice the technique and the ice is divided into 4 areas in the D8 Formation using dividers. There are 8 nets for small games. Each game has a rule modification so the players practice skills like escape moves or good habits. Now I add the fake shot sequence that is in the Jursinov video. I worked with him the season after this hockey school.

hockeycoachingabcs.com/mediagallery/media.php?f=0&sort=0&s=20080721131640986

There is a sad part of this video. The little blonde instructor, who shoots right got killed in a car accident last winter. She was as sweet a person as you could ever know.

I have posted this before but thought I should put it here because it goes well with the Russian Big Moves warm up since I learned that from Juhani Wahlsten who watched Jursinov while he was coaching in Turku, Finland. They are old adversaries, playing each other in the Olympics, coaching vs each other internationally and both are in the IIHF Hall of Fame. Now they are close friends and share ideas on how to coach. I am lucky enough to be let in on the methods by Juuso and then I coached with Jursi and Austria. He came one week a month to do skills sessions M-W with the pro's and T-Th with the development group.

IIHF Hall of Fame Russian Coach Teaches U20 and U17 Players Moves and Fakes
Vladimir Jursinov is the most famous skills coach in the world. He has helped over 65 players get to the NHL. He was Tikovovs assistant witht the Soviets, the 98 Russian Olympic coach and assitant every Olympics up to 06. Here is how th Russian learn to puck handle. It is jr and midget aged players. The ones with the fancier helmets are pro players.


hockeycoachingabcs.com/filemgmt/index.php?id=6

. Fake a slapshot and go around opponent on the backhand side.

. Fake a slapshot and go around opponent on the forehand side.

. Fake a slapshot and then do a backhand tight turn around opponent.

. Fake a slapshot and reach out like you are going around the opponent on your forehand and then pull the puck quickly to your backhand and go around opponent.
