Here’s a Fantastic Half-Ice Conditioning Drill from Our Friend, Ján Bednár

From time to time our coaches send me drills, this is a great half-ice conditioning drill from Ján Bednár out in Slovakia. Here’s the diagram and explanation:

  • Option 1: Skate through the pattern forward
  • Option 2: Skate through the pattern, pivoting backward as diagrammed
  • Option 3: Skate through the pattern, forward, with a puck. Add shot at the end.
  • Option 4: Skate through the pattern with a puck, pivoting backward as diagrammed. Add shot at the end.

NOTE: make sure players are alternating lines so they develop stops and starts in both directions.
