Wednesday Drill of the Week: Yale 2v1 Series

A different format for this weeks drill. We use an iPad app called Educreations to share things with our players. You can view this weeks drill here.

This is a 2v1 quick hitter series and is continuous. Forwards should focus on quick attacks, getting to the net. Defensemen need to have good sticks and awareness, being ready to clear rebounds and eliminate secondary threats.

Wednesday Drill of the Week: 6 Pass 2v1

This one might be a little confusing but I’m going to give it a shot.

The drill starts with the F at the blue line (XF) making a pass to the F in the corner (black dotted line). They exchange passes as the blueline F skates towards the corner F (purple dotted line). At the same time, the D in the corner passes D-D and then up to the point (green) – the point D walks the blue line for a long shot on net.

When the blue line F gets close to the corner, he passes to the corner D (pink dotted line) who initiates a breakout sequence with both Forwards (blue dotted lines). The two F then go into the Neutral Zone and regroup, while the D who took the long shot gaps up and plays them 2v1.

This drill creates an unbalanced, quick hitter 2v1 while incorporating a lot of passes and puck movement on one half of the ice.

Wednesday Drill of the Week: 2v1 Series

2v1 Series

A simple quick-hitter 2v1 series this week. There are two variations (top and bottom). The bottom sequence starts with a D on the dot, a forward on the half wall and one at the top of the circle. Coach is in the middle of the F’s with pucks. The drill starts with the coach passes a puck to the F on the wall – the 2 F’s then attack the D 2v1 to the net.

The top variation is similar. One F starts on the wall (facing the boards) down low. The other F starts on the circle. Coach is on the half wall with pucks. The drill starts with the coach rimming the puck to the forward down low. The F turns on it and then attacks the net 2v1 on the D.

F Keys – movement away from the puck, quick attack, shoot for rebound, stop at the net, read the defenseman and attack their weakness

D Keys – stick position, stick on puck, swivel head, long body when appropriate, judging speed, playing off the center axis
