"Terminator Regroup", challenges players in all facets of the 1vs1 or 2vs2 battle. The coach spots the puck for two competing players. The first player to touch the puck attempts to score. The opponent must steal the puck and skate through the blue paint (goal crease), also known as the "Regroup Zone", prior to going on offense. Battles last approximately twenty seconds and on the coaches whistle the players hustle back to the end of their lines. Once out of the way, the coach starts the next group. Coaches can feel free to Progress to a 2vs2 battle.
Offensive: Attempt to gain position first by drive skating and cutting off the opponents lane to the puck. Manage the puck with patience and do not force high risk plays which lead to easy turnovers and regroup opportunities for the defender.
Defensive: Be ready to quickly transition and regroup on turnovers. Force the offensive player to make high risk plays which will create easy transition opportunities.
