Cycle Give and Go Drill



Cycle Give and Go Drill

The Cycle Give and Go Drill is an awesome way to introduce cycling concepts, and offensive attack patterns. Here’s the diagram:

Cycle Give and Go Drill

1. Player from line 1 leaves with the puck and walks up the boards, then cycles back to player from line 2
2. Player from line 1 drives through the seam for a give and go pass, receives the pass from player 2, then executes a one-time-shot

Variation: After receiving the pass back from player 2, player 1 touch-passes to player 3 or 2 for a one-time-shot

Enjoy!

Use cycling to draw opposing players out of position and create scoring chances

Cycling could be called the “pinnacle” of executing support tactics. The concept completely revolves around a team’s ability to properly provide both front-side and back-side support. This is an advanced concept because the type of support each player is providing is constantly changing.

Although it is a complex concept, cycling can be taught at relatively young ages, if Timing and Support tactics have been explained and properly developed. Here’s a great cycling drill that will help you along the way!
