The final skill development video in this series focuses on defensemen handling the puck at the point and driving to the middle. The drill is very simple, but the techniques used to control the puck are crucial for them in game situations.
In video number 5 of 6 in our summer training series, we’ll take a look at the Double Pivot Drill. The Double Pivot Drill is great for focusing on explosive change of direction and maintaining puck control.
The 4th skill development drill is the Figure 8 Pass & Drive drill. This drill works on passing while in transition, and driving to the net and shooting in stride.
The third video in this series shows a simple, but effective drill used to practice a player’s ability to transition from a stickhandle (or a move) into a drive to the net – in this case, along with a change of direction.
Video number 2 in the summer training series is again simple to run, but difficult to master as there are a lot of skills being worked on at once. This quick skill drill focuses on quick passes, following the play up, and shooting in stride. This drill can be varied lots of ways to fit your needs.
Over-speed training is a buzz term often associated having “quick feet” during a drill. Simply put, over-speed training involves the execution of a skill at a higher tempo than the player is comfortable with.
