Slinky Pass

Aug. 25, 2020 at 4:50 p.m. MDT

"Slinky Pass" introduces immediate width in puck handling after receiving the puck. The coach partners up the players who stand about ten feet apart. One partner passes to the other. The receiving partner immediately moves the puck to the forehand as far as they can reach and then the backhand as far as they can reach prior to returning the pass. The receiver then passes the puck back to the original passer who repeats.

Teaching Points

Giver: Adjust velocity based upon distance from receiver. Attempt different types of passes (saucers, forehand, backhand). Attempt to pass with no weight transfer (which leads to predictable passing).

Receiver: Slide bottom hand up the shaft of the stick as players stretch to forehand and backhand side. Attempt to look up and down versus staring at the puck. Call for the puck using your voice.
