The Window Drill is one of my staples for working on hockey crossovers with youngsters
I love the Window Drill for a few reasons: It’s easy to set up, easy to execute, you can run it half ice, and it’s extremely effective for working on hockey crossovers!
As you run this drill with your team, make sure you emphasize that the players MUST keep their feet moving throughout the entire “window.” Also, teach them to use puck protection tactics as they execute their crossovers.
1. On whistle, first player from each line explodes full speed to the blue line
2. At the blue line, players enters into the “window” zone – and maintains crossovers through the entire window
3. After exiting window, player shoots with head up and feet moving
