D4 Two Pass - Slovakia U20

One consistent thing I see when watching the international teams practice at the IIHF World Junior Championships is that they play a game in each zone at almost every practice. Sometimes the coach organizes it as part of practice or the players start the game themselves when practice is over. The North American players will stay on and shoot the puck or practice skills but the European players organize games. The rule is the puck can't come out of the zone or the other team gets it. When you regain the puck you must make two passes before you can shoot. Sometimes only one pass is needed or various skills can be added. This is the Slovakian U20 Team.

B6 Puck Handling Eight Exercises

Key Points:Players need to be able to handle the puck on both sides of their body and this requires loose shoulders. When you carry the puck with only one side of the blade you must skate around the puck and be able to rotate your core. Skating with fast hands and fast feet requires good cross over skills and loosens the shoulders. This is an exercise I learned from Jursinov the IIHF Hall of Fame Russian coach.

Description:Leave from diagonal corners and do two circles in each zone in opposite directions. Exercises include: carry the puck only using the forehand side of the blade, only the back hand side of the blade, fast hands and fast feet, alternate facing inside and outside.

Many other tasks such as backward skating are possilbe.

Finish with a shot on net.

D6 Game Formation – Variations - Youth

Key Points:
The ice can be divided into two halves lengthwise which creates more speed and allows full ice drills and games on each side.

Description:
B6 is the basic formation with a net on each side of the ice on the goal lines at each end.

D6 Variation One
- One net on the goal line lined up with the other net on the far blue line.

D6 Variation Two
- One net in the goal crease at one end and the other net lined up with the face-off dot at the far blue line.
-This variation allows for play in the entire zone.
- In this variation the scoring team gets the puck and goes the other way and the team scored on must touch the blue line before defending. Use either Variation A or Variation B or you could combine them. Variation B gives a full zone to attack and defend in at each end.

By dividing the ice down the middle you have the option of doing games and drills full ice, in one zone, 2-3-4 games at once or games and drills at the same time.

B2 Point Shots - Canada U20

Key Points:
Pointman should skate along the line and shoot instead of forward towards the defender. Get inside the dots and shoot. Move laterally in order to miss the shot blocker. Shoot off the ice over sticks low enough to hit the goalies pads and produce rebounds or create deflections. Use snap shots and one timers to get the shot off quickly.

Description:
1. Coach pass to 1 at the point who skates along the blue line inside the dot and shoot.
2. Coach pass to 1 at the point who passes to 2 at the far point and 2 shoots.
3. Coach pass to 1 at the point and 1 pass across to 2 at the far point who skates wide passes back to 1 who skates to the mid-point and shoots.

*The coach alternates passes from easy to ones that are difficult to control.
