Around the Moon

Aug. 24, 2020 at 3:38 p.m. MDT

"Around the Moon", creates tempo, acceleration and speed in your practice. On the whistle, two diagonal players of the same color begin with a puck. Players explode to the center line and half way around the center circle. They then attack their respective ends while maintaining their speed. On the whistle, the other color begins. As a progression, you can have players skate the full circle prior to attacking or have them pivot with their bellies facing the net they are to attack.

Teaching Points

Puck Control: Attempt to maintain speed while carrying the puck and performing cross-overs. The puck is carried in front of the body. Cradle the puck without over handling it. Keep your head and eyes up while skating.
