Hockey Passing Drills like this one can be great tools to run high-tempo practices

One of my players, Nate Hymas, showed me this one a couple of years ago. So, I called this the Hymas Square Drill (or the Wag the Dog Drill – since Hymas is one of those players who loves to give input). Either way, this is a great, quick-paced, heads up passing drill. Here’s the diagram and explanation:

1. Players in opposite corners pass straight ahead
2. Passes go around the square
3. Players who started the drill skate around the circle and receive pass back from the same line they left from

Option 2: Similar to the first option, but now incorporates backward skating. See Diagram 2

Enjoy!
