"Bee Hive", is an elementary drill to work on puck control in both open ice and in small areas. Onthe first whistle, players chaos around in the designated area with a puck. On the second whistle, all players must enter the "Bee Hive", while handling their puck. The "Bee Hive" is the area within the circle. Players continue to chaos inside the circle until the next whistle, which allows them to leave and chaos anywhere in the designated area again. The whistle should be blown about every 15 seconds in this drill and coaches should allow for rest every few sets.
Puck Control: Head is up and on a swivel so players can avoid collisions. Handle the puck on both sides of the body and change directions consistently. Fakes and creative moves are encouraged (stick fakes, head fakes, body fakes, change of speed, knee touches).
