Click Here for a printout of the Synchronized Passing Drill that you can bring to the rink with you.
Synchronized Passing is a simple, yet highly effective, hockey passing drill that will help players to develop their ability to maintain proper hockey passing technique while in motion. Players should be taught to incorporate their weight transfer into their stride while giving and receiving passes. This will help them to “cushion and sweep” their passes properly.
Start with your players very close to each other. As their skill level improves, increase the distance between each partnership, and the speed at which they skate down the ice. Players should eventually be able to execute this drill at top speed, making stick-to-stick passes all the way down the ice!
