Weiss Tech Hockey Reveals its Top 5 Most Popular Posts of All Time I started this blog a little over 4 years ago‚Ķ which is a long time in internet years! It started as a bit of an experiment for me. I wanted to try and use web technology to help local coaches with their practice plans. I'd been playing around with a "new" drill diagrammer I had just come across, DrillDraw, and thought it would be cool to make video explanations of drills using a "digital whiteboard."

Give and Go 1 on 1 is another AWESOME drill from the Scott Fukami drill collections! This is another drill I picked up from the Scott Fukami drill collections available to DrillDraw owners. These drill collections are phenomenal, and are filled with hundreds of REALLY GOOD, well-drawn drills. I highly recommend getting all three drill sets if you own DrillDraw.

The (F) carries the puck under the blue line for a 1 on 1 on the opposite side. Option: A second (F) joins the play as the first (F)…
