ABC Hockey School: Skating, Skills, Game Situation
This is a video of a hockey school I ran for the college I coached at. We divided the ice using rink pads. Most of the time we divided into 4 areas with 2 nets at each. Sometimes the pads were down the middle and it gave 2 full length areas. The video had Gaston teaching little kids skating using balls and pucks to get the feel of weight transfer. John C with game reading skills playing vs 2 nets at once. I teach some skills and have the instructors demo. This is sad to see because the little blonde instructor in the grey sweats was killed in a car accident last winter.
The idea is to teach a skill with demo and drills and then put the skill or team play concept into a skill game, game reading game or transition game situation.
There is a lot of room on the ice if the coaches use their imagination. There are 35-40 kid's on the ice in this video.
