T1 - Scoring Circuit - U18 F
Shoot while skating and follow the shot. Hit the net. You only need a goalie on the pass off the pads but could put a board or pad to create rebounds. Line up outside the blue line just inside the dots. Square up to shoot one timers. For the pass off the pads the goalie plays without a stick.
1. Circle the line and shoot from both the middle and wide lanes, switch lanes and return on the outside.
2. Cross and drop (leave) behind the lineup then pass for a one timer if the shooter is on the backhand and a one touch if going to the net on the forehand.
3. Cross and drop and the shooter pass off the pads shooting low at the far side.
* Push ups if they miss the net.
This is not the most complicated drill in the world but it is very effective for practicing shooting while moving. I have my players take slap shots from the top of the circle as a lead up to one timers. If you can't take a slap shot then you can't one time the puck. They can also practice the wrist or snap shot while skating hard.
I usually do this when my goalies are working at the other end with a coach. Both lines can leave and players should keep switching lines and shoot from both the middle and wide lane. Teach them to leave puck on the cross and drop and then make a firm pass for a one timer and a hard pass for the forehand one touch shot. They also have to fire the puck hard to the far side for the pass off the pads.
This simple drill has been very effective for increasing my teams scoring.
