This hockey breakout progression is recommended for advanced teams only
This is a highly effective breakout progression. There are endless ways to change it up to work on different game situations, and it involves many recurring passing patterns. Since there are many possible “points of failure” I only recommend this drill for older, or more advanced hockey teams. Here’s the diagram and explanation:
1. D to D to Wing
2. D to D to Wing
3. D to D to Wing, one-touch to Center
4. D to D to Wing, one-touch to D who follows up play
5. Start again from the other side
OPTIONAL: Put defensemen on far blue line for a 1 on 1.
