This is the Power Turn Progression I use with My Players

This is the progression I use when developing power turns with my players. Remember, to work on skill development, you must 1. Show the Skill, 2. Develop the Skill, 3. Apply the Skill. Here’s the diagram and explanation:

powerturn_progressionPower Turn Progression
Players set up as shown. Designate which direction ALL lines will be turning toward. Lines 1 & 2 go at the same time, lines 3 & 4 go at the same time.

Phase 1: Player skates out to the cone, power turns, and explodes back to the line. Run each player through 3-4 times, then switch the direction of the turn.

Phase 2: Same as phase 1, but with the puck. Add a shot.

Phase 3: Inside edges through the cones, power turn out, and explode in for the shot. Run each player through 3-4 times, then switch the direction of the turn.
