Figure 8 Passing – Video

We’re back this week with a quick skill development drill video. ┬áThe Figure 8 Passing drill is an excellent drill to work on agility, passing in awkward positions, and always being ready for a pass.


As always, if you have questions or comments on the video, please feel free to leave them in the comments section below.

  1. Hi
    very good drill. This is the kind of drill (individual flow drill) I use more and more during my pre-season preparation and when an injured player comes back to play.
    Thanks guys, your site is one of my best

  2. I really like this drill but the passing should not be so loud i do that drill and I make sure the kids are cradling the puck instead of slapping at it. but very good drill


  3. I like the idea of a figure 8 but it would be a little time consuming for Youth Hockey or High School hockey.
    This would be hard for the whole team to do at once.
    Try to manage this with 7 groups doing this at the same time and then rotating the passser.

    1. Hi Jim,

      Thanks for writing. We actually run this with our HS-aged players quite often during station practices / portions of practice. We will usually end up with about 7-8 kids per 4 stations, and will run 2-3 instances in one station of the drill. Keeps lots of kids moving, and is pretty straight forward to manage. I agree though, trying to run this all over the ice simultaneously would be difficult.

      Thanks for your feedback.

      All the best,
