Tornado Pass

Aug. 17, 2020 at 2:37 p.m. MDT

"Tornado Pass" introduces immediate puck protection 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 spins away from the passer to hide the puck (show your partner your butt). The receiver then spins back and 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: Hide puck immediately by turning the body on reception. Building this wall allows for time and space. Spin a different direction each time players receive the pass.
