Bench Management – Lineup Card [Download]
Managing the bench during game situations can be difficult at best. Players get hurt, equipment fails, penalties are called – you name it, it changes your game plan. Good coaches are able to react and make decisions quickly. One of the tools I’ve found most useful over the years has been the lineup card. This allows me to quickly glance down and know my first choice for most situations. It is also extremely useful if you’re in a game where line match-ups are important. I’ve provided a PDF download of the template I use for my lineup cards. It includes 4 offensive and defensive lines, 2 goaltenders, 2 power play units, 2 penalty kill units, two groups for end of the game play (pulling goalie, or defending a one-goal lead), and areas for notes and diagrams. I hope you find this useful in your coaching!
