Here’s one of my favorite Small Area Games to work 2 on 1’s and quick transitions
The Center Boundary 2 on 1 is a fabulous small area game drill that works on quick transitions and 2 on 1’s in tight areas. Since there are 6 players participating at once, there isn’t a lot of waiting around between turns. Keep the “shifts” short; between 1:00 to 1:30, and make sure the players are going hard the entire time! Here’s the explanation and diagram:
1. Set up a 2 on 1 in each side.
2. Nobody can cross the center line.
3. When the defender gets the puck back, he/she must pass the puck across the line to the forwards on the other side.
Start with 2 on 1, work up to 3 on 2.
