Swedish 5-Pass & Shot



Swedish 5-Pass & Shot

The Swedish 5-Pass & Shot drill is a great way to work on some of the passing and skating patterns used in regroups. This is a more advanced drill, so make sure you have the right group for it before giving it a try. Here’s the diagram:

Swedish 5-Pass & Shot

1. On whistle, first player from each diagonal line leaves without a puck (only one line shown here to keep the diagram simple)
2. First player skates across the blue line, receives a pass from the second player of the opposite line, then touch-passes it back
3. After passing it back, he or she loops around the top of the center-ice circle, receives a pass from the same line he or shee left from, then touch-passes it back
4. After the second touch pass, player loops out wide, opens up as an outlet pass, receives another pass from the same line he/she left from, and attacks 1 on 0

Spice Figure 8 Passing Drill



Here’s Another One of my Favorite Hockey Passing Drills

I love this hockey passing drill because it just flows well––especially when you have the right group of players for it. At it’s best, this is a quick-paced, “tic-tac-toe” type of drill. However, if you have the wrong group of players, this drill will grind to a halt pretty quickly. So, just make sure your players are advanced enough before attempting this one! Here’s the diagram and explanation:

spice_fig_8_passingSpice Figure 8 Passing Drill
1. On the whistle, one (F) from each line diagonally across from each other goes.
2. Each (F) takes a few steps forward, then passes to the far (D).
3. The defensemen make a few “D to D” passes, then hit the (F) as he power turns around the far cone.
4. After skating the figure 8 as shown in the diagram, (F) picks up the puck, splits the defensemen, and enters the zone for a shot on net.

Enjoy!!

Coach Regroup 2 on 0



The Coach Regroup 2 on 0 is a nice little regroup drill, with plenty of progressions to work toward!

I love this drill because is is very modifiable. You can start simple, with coaches controlling the play, and progress to complex variations which include 2 on 1’s!

I’ve used this drill with all levels of experience, from beginners up to college-level players, and it’s always a lot of fun!

coach_regroup_2on0Coach Regroup 2 on 0

Forwards in each of the corners, one defenseman on each blueline.

1. Forward steps out, passes to far D-man.
2. Both forwards from that line swing through for a regroup pass.
3. After receiving the return pass, forwards regroup with other D-man, then return 2 on 0.

OPTIONS: start simple with one side at a time, progress to both sides simultaneously, then to a 2 on 1.

Enjoy!!
