D1- Puck Dog – Jasper Camp

Key Points:
Encourage the players to use moves and fakes, change of pace and to protect the puck.

Description:
This game has the players line up at the end of the rink in the A2 formation. Each player has a
puck. One player (who is 'it') is at the blue line and calls out 'British Puck-dog.' The players stickhandle
the puck, trying to get to the end without being checked. If a player loses the puck, she
becomes 'it' and is in the middle checking. The last player with a puck wins.

T2-4 – D100 - Full Ice Specialty Team Practice - RB Pro

Key Points:
Practice the breakout, neutral zone entry, attack, forecheck and power play set up. The penalty killers practice the forecheck, and defensive zone coverage. It is great if you can get another team to practice with you and take turns with 5 min. power plays each in all situations and have a few minutes between each situation to review your systems with the players.

Description:
Divide into two teams with the extra players on the bench. If possible have someone run the score clock to make it game like.

DT400 - Perry Pearn Game Rotation - Youth

Key Points:
This game allows the coach to focus on the attack or defending deep in the zone. You can play this game in situations from 1-1 to 5-5. It is a great rotation to practice specialty teams if you have 3 lines because it gives the players some rest and they alternate between pp and pk (one F would leave the zone) The defenders have to clear the zone with control of the puck. With situations over a 3 on 3 I would move the resting players back to the far blue line.

Description:
1. Players line up within a stick length of the red line if you have 2 groups or only ½ ice; otherwise behind the red or far blue line.
2. Three players attack three defenders.
3. Defenders must carry the puck out of the zone before passing to team waiting team mates.
4. Three new players attack vs the original offensive players.
5. Keep score, implement skill (only forehand passes) or team play rules (goals originate from below the goal line).
6. Allow offensive players to cross the blue line on transition.

DT400 - Transition Game of Low Battles with Point Support - Youth

Key Points:
Great game that I learned from Art Krusel 'RIP'to practice cycling, going to the net, screening, tipping, point shots, shot pass, one timers on offense. On defense you have the low zone coverage and communication skills. As well as individual techniques like sealing the stick to the outside, tying up sticks, boxing out, switching, all from the defensive side.

Description:
1. One team is lined up behind each faceoff dot. From one to tree players leave at a time.
2. The next player in line plays the joker at the point and must pass or shoot within a second. Defenders do not check the joker as he can’t go in and score.
3. The coach dumps the puck in or shoots on net and the teams race for the puck. Whoever gets the puck can shoot right away.
4. When the defending team gets the puck they must pass to their joker at the point to transition to offense.
5. If the puck is shot out of the zone the coach passes to the non offending joker.
6. Play 20-30” and on the whistle the players pass to the coach and skate hard out of the zone before the coach shoots a new puck in.

T4 - B500 - Defensive Zone Skating - RB Pro

Key Points:
This is the easiest way to introduce defensive zone coverage. Move the puck to each corner, each point, at the half wall and behind the net. Players rotate so they have sticks in passing lanes and toe caps facing where they can have a Man-You-Puck triangle so with the head on a swivel they see their man and the puck.

Description:
1. Players start off with a box and one in the middle.
2. Coach points to where the puck is and the players hustle to the proper defensive position.
3. Sticks in the passing lanes and a man-you-puck triangle for role 4.
4. Skate to 5 spots.
5. Straight line stop and start skating.
6. Create a man on and box behind.
7. Low forward (often centre) support when puck is in corners or at point.
8. Low forward pressure puck at the hash (half wall).
9. Wings cover points and come down to hash if puck is below goal line.
10. D pressure in their corner, in front and half way to the high F3.

I have added the forwards setting up in an I when the puck first goes to the point. I see this in the NHL with a lot of teams. The second forward goes to the side of the first pass, so the D doesn't have to come out unless the puck gets to the player on the other side. The middle forward drops down but doesn't chase sideways.
This practice formation can be used for all team play teaching situations. If you haven't enough players to do it out of both ends then you simply rotate in one end.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

T2-4 D400 PK and PP Rotation Detroit - Pro

Key Points:
PK outnumber the PP on loose pucks in the corner. PK skate in straight lines. Always one pk denying the mid point and one in front. PP change the point of attack when outnumbered. Rotate the mid point player to the middle or the back door.

Description:
1. Start with everyone in position on the pp and pk.
2. If pk gets the puck start the pplay again from a different spot.
3. On the pplay either the puck or the player moves.
4. PK always lead with the stick on the puck and in passing lanes.
5. PP always give at least two easy outlets.
6. PP give low support when puck on half wall.
7. PK cut the ice in half and force passes that must beat two defenders.
8. Work at each end 30-60" rotate on whistle.

*Game situation: defenders shoot puck to other end.

2. F3 and F4 support D1 as far as the hash marks.
3. D2 support F1 and F2 passively from the point.
4. D1 make a breakout pass to F3 or F4.
5. F3-F4 attack D2 in the other direction.
6. F5 and F6 support D2 and D3 support F3 and F4.
7. Continue this flow.
8. Add a D to make it a 2 on 2.

Options.
There could be active support with a 2-1 in the nzone and a 3-3 at each end. Another option is to combine active and passive support or add dump ins and regroups.

B6 - Passing and Shooting - Youth

Key Points:
Make hard passes. Give a target and skate into the pass. Rebound by following your shot.

Description:
A. The first player #1 cut across the ice for a pass from the opposite corner. After passing #2 cut across for a pass.
B.
1. First players #1and #2 skate parallel and pass as many times as possible before shooting from above the circles.
2. The first player #1 cut across the ice and make a drop pass to #2. #2 skate and pass across to #1 and follow the pass by crossing behind for another drop pass. Continue this and shoot before the top of the circles and rebound.

This is a drill from my morning skills practice. The goalie coach wanted long shots and only one goalie was at practice. We did these three shooting passing drills. 1. Get a pass from the opposite corner and take a long shot. 2. Exchange pucks skating down the ice and shoot. 3. Cross, drop, pass across and shoot.
