U Turn Re-Group

Aug. 24, 2020 at 3:45 p.m. MDT

"U turn Re-Group", creates tempo, timing and speed in your practice. On the whistle, one player from each side begins with a puck. Players accelerate into the neutral zone where they leave the puck on the neutral zone dot, and then cross the zone and pick up the spotted puck from the other player. Players then quick release shoot on the opposition goaltender. On the whistle, the next players begin. As a progression you can add passes prior to the cross and drop.

Teaching Points

Passing and Timing: Leave the puck as close to the dot as possible. This is challenging to do as players are accelerating at full speed. Head up on the cross to avoid collisions. Adjust the skating angle to pick up the puck in full stride to avoid slowing down.
