Wednesday Drill of the Week: St Cloud 3v2

St Cloud 3v2

 

This drill focuses on rush offense and systemic play in the neutral zone. The drill starts with two lines of forwards and two sets of D. On a whistle, the forwards attack the D 3v2 from a standstill. The forwards must create an offensive chance – put pressure on the defensemen, put them in a vulnerable position; concepts such as middle drive, rink width, far pad shots, etc.

After the rush ends, a whistle is blown and a second puck is presented in the neutral zone. The forwards are attacking the same net they attacked off the rush, the D are attacking the opposite net they defended. The objective with the second puck is to simulate a neutral zone situation, with both sides working on team systems in the neutral zone. The second puck can be placed or added anywhere, creating a quick counterattack/backchecking situation, a regroup, a hinge, etc. After the neutral zone situation, the drill resets and starts again.
