Perpetual Backcheck Drill

The Perpetual Backcheck Drill is a great competition drill to keep players motivated and having fun while working on their conditioning. I use this one quite often with my own teams. Here’s the diagram:

Perpetual Backcheck Drill
1. First player in each line leaves and receives a pass from the coach.
2. Each player skates full speed down the ice and takes a shot.
3. Next player in line can’t leave until the shot has been taken.
4. After the shot, the shooter will peel off and backcheck the next player in line.
5. Drill continues perpetually.

Enjoy!
