Center Pass is a Great Drill for Younger Age Groups

I’ve been using this drill with my Mite team this year, and have already seen the kids executing it in our games! In the video I show two variations, but you can make more adaptations as you see fit. Here’s the diagram and explanation:

Variation 1:
1. Coach dumps the puck into the corner
2. First player in white line goes and gets it
3. Next player in line goes to the front of the net
4. Pass out from the corner, shot on goal

3. One white and one blue drive the net, white trying to get open, blue trying to defend by lifting the white’s stick
4. Player from the corner can either pass out front, or shoot
