Learning D Zone Coverage

Aug. 26, 2020 at 10:09 a.m. MDT

"Learning Defensive Zone Coverage", introduces players to defensive zone coverage. A fiveplayer unit chaos in the neutral zone. Coaches are positioned in both corners with one coach in possession of the puck. On the whistle the five players backcheck into the end, stop and remain stationary when they believe they are in the correct position to defend. The coach makes adjustments/corrections and then passes the puck to the other coach. The players then adjust and rotate to their new positions and once again stop and remain stationary. Once the players have the rotation down the players hustle out of the zone and five new players begin to chaos.
