PUCK CONTROL – HALF-ICE LANES

Setup and execution: Four lanes are created with the set-up of pylons and sticks. Maximize repetitions and use progressions that players will use to create deception, quick hands and puck control skills. Coaches are encouraged to be creative with this template.

Key teaching points:

  • Explosive starts and quick stops
  • Heads up and use of peripheral vision
  • Quick hands and feet
  • Put the puck in the safest place and protect it
  • Repetition without boredom

In addition to a diagram and written explanation, each drill available through the Hockey Canada Network includes a video showing how it works, and a clip showing exactly how the drill can be beneficial in a game situation.

The Network app allows coaches to filter through hundreds of drills, select which ones they want for practice, and share the drills with their team. Players and other coaches can now step on the ice already knowing what the drills look like, meaning that less time is spent explaining, and more time can be spent practicing.

At the start of every month, Drills of the Month will be posted on the Hockey Canada Network for coaches of every level. The drills will be shared through teams within the Network; follow the instructions below to join a team.

If you already have a Hockey Canada Network account, select the link that corresponds to your program level to join and receive the Drills of the Month. You can join as many teams as you would like.
