Mohawk Agility Drill

The Mohawk Agility Drill can be used with cones, sticks, “Attack Triangles,” SweetHands, or any other hockey obstacle. More creative obstacles produce more creative players in this drill. Here’s the diagram:

Mohawk Square Drill



Here’s a Quick “2 for 1” Post with Two Hockey Skating Drills

The Mohawk Square Drill, and the Full-Ice Snake Drill are two phenomenal ways to work on inside mohawks with your team. I use these two drills to work up to more difficult mohawk drills like the “Snake” Shooting Drill––and of course, the Snake Shooting Drill is a precursor to many other situational drills in which the mohawk can be used.

In this video, I make reference to two previous videos:

Here are the diagrams and explanations for the drills mentioned in the video:

mohawk_squareMohawk Square
1. Players start on the boards, about half way between the two cones
2. On the whistle, players skate around the square, executing a mohawk around each cone
3. After a few times through, go the other direction

Note: Once the players can execute the move well, put a puck on their sticks and have them do a toe drag with their mohawk at each cone.

1. Players start in corner.
2. Each player weaves through the cones, executing a mohawk around each cone.
3. Maintain the mohawk behind the net, then come back.

Note: Add a puck and a shot at the end as players begin to improve.

Inside Mohawk



The inside mohawk is a very versatile power skating maneuver. Here are a few simple drills to work on it.

The Mohawk can be used while shooting, deking, pivoting, slipping checks… the options are limitless. Players who become proficient with the mohawk will find themselves performing it instinctively in games. Here’s the diagram and explanations for the Mohawk Square Drill.
