D - ABC Games Booklet 2019

Games are a critical component of learning to play hockey. We are helping the players learn to 'PLAY a GAME' and not to skate along lines and through pylons. Games can be played full, half, quarter, on third, or basically in any area of the rink. It is important to keep score and monitor any modified rules.

Skills, good habits, team play, skating can all be practiced by playing games in practice.

This booklet has 115 pdf.s with diagrams, description and video examples of some of the games a coach can use. There are another 70 video clips of games.

(I have revised the booklet to eliminate repetition and some team play games that don't belong here. I am working on a Game Booklet taking all of the games from our book and including the games posted on the site.)

DANGER


Only use these games if you are willing to have your players enjoy practice, become creative, learn to read game situations and make appropriate decisions. In other words move toward becoming 'complete players'.



Some games are the same but I left them in the booklet because it may be a pro team playing one time and then a team from Finland or a youth team another. It shows how games are played at all levels.

This may be the best situation drill of all. It is game-like and full ice,, the players transition from offense to defense and a lot of read and respond is required .
Gene Reilly is running this drill. Gene is from Boston and is a lifer with a huge background coaching Jr. A with Bill Dineen, at Maine with Sean Walsh, working with Ottawa's AHL team with the assignment of teaching Jason Spezza the pro game. He also was an asst. coach at Harvard, Northeastern and now trying to rebuild the program at CC. Gene spent about five years with the Red Bulls and left there to be a pro scout for Carolina. He missed coaching and went back to the NCAA. A really, really hard working guy. I learned a lot from him.


Here is Babcock doing this same sequence as a transtion game with Detroit (coaches would be well advised to incorporate Transition Games after they use situation drills to teach the players. There is only one puck, no whistles and you just need to send more or less players to change the situation.)

DT100 Continuous 2-1, 2-2 Detroit – Pro

Forum Posting
http://www.hockeycoachingabcs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?showtopic=6861&topic=6861#6861

Video of the transition game.
http://hockeycoachingabcs.com/mediagallery/media.php?f=0&sort=0&s=20101208083750407

https://www.facebook.com/518555930/videos/pcb.814633112779821/10159834060175931

Detroit's supporting F and D are passive in this video but they could be active as in the drill and have a 2-1 in the nzone and 3-3 in each zone and then a 2-2 through the nzone and a 4-4 in each zone. A 3-2 situation creates a 5-5 in each zone and they are all great ways to practice offensive and defensive team play. If you have only 16 skaters you can get a 5-5 by having one D join the rush and the high F backeck on a continuous 2-2.

T1-2-3 - C2 2-1 Technique - RB Pro

Key Points:

This is a great formation for teaching as the players are close to the coach. Defenders close the gap right away and keep the puck on one side then it is really a 2-2 with the goalie playing the shooter. Attack with speed and cross the mid-line with the puck, a pass or a pass off the pads.

Description:

1. Start with F1 skating toward the red line and getting a pass from F2.
2. D1 skate up and close the gap before the blue line.
3. F1 attack the wide lane and F2 cross behind.
4. F2 be in a good shooting position. Square up if on the off wing.
5. Puck carrier must be a threat and attack with speed.
6. Defender stay in the middle and identify the most dangerous attacker.
7. Coach stop the drill to give input on how to play the situation.
8. Attackers make the first pass early so there is a second play and use the forehand when possible.
9. Defender keep the play to one side and tie up the stick of the player going to the net after a shot.
10. If the puck carrier is wide and deep an option is for the defender to slide outside the strong side post.

T1-2-3-4 - C2 2-2 Technique - RB Pro

Key Points:

C2 is a great formation to teach from and go over key points. Keep score and make the drill a contest. A 2-2 has the 4 roles. 1-puck carrier, 2-puck support, 3-check puck carrier, 4-cover away from puck.

Description:


1. Attacker 1 pass to attacker 2 then take the ice behind by crossing to the middle.
2. Coach wants attacker 2 to skate to the wide lane and 1 cross to the middle.
3. Defender 1 and 2 skate out and close the gap right away.
4. Cross and drop before the blue line to cause the defenders to make coverage decisions.
5. Coach put in a new puck if the play ends right away and the 2 on 2 continues.
6. Attackers cross to cause confusion and defenders communicate to stay man on man or switch.
7. Cross to create a 2-1 vs. one defender.
8. Defenders must see their man and the puck and play on the defensive side.
9. Attackers fight for the offensive side and keep their sticks free for one touch shots and rebounds.
10. Either play F and D or everyone play all situations, which is better for development.

* I am adding a pdf. with all three of these drills together, 1-1, 2-1, 2-2, as it is a great teaching sequence.

3. In neutral zone 3 attacking forwards and 1 D continue and vs. the 2 defensemen 4-2.

Skating and Puck Handling Warm up - NCAA Div. 1 Female Freshman

A female player I have worked with 4 years does her warm-up with a puck including edges and balance. The idea is to reach as far as possible with the puck and separate the movement of the upper and lower body. Around the circles the puck stays on one side of the blade in order to loosen the shoulders.

Yesterday she carried 5 different kinds of balls at the same time and did many agility exercises, lots of shots and scoring and passing. We are going 5 days in a row before I go to Santa Rosa to play in a tournament.
