Synchronized Passing



Use this Hockey Passing Drill to Develop Passing Technique in Motion

Synchronized Passing is a simple, yet highly effective, hockey passing drill that will help players to develop their ability to maintain proper hockey passing technique while in motion.

Players should be taught to incorporate their weight transfer into their stride while giving and receiving passes. This will help them to “cushion and sweep” their passes properly. Here’s the diagram and explanation:

1. Players skate side by side, giving and receiving passes while in motion.
2. After skating behind the net, players crisscross so that they work both forehand and backhand passing.
3. Start slow, then work up to full speed.

NOTE: Start with your players very close to each other. As their skill level improves, increase the distance between each partnership, and the speed at which they skate down the ice.
