The star drill is a great drill to teach young goalies the art of moving around the crease!
REMEMBER: have the goalie adjust to the rebound if they are not able to cover or trap the puck.
For more advanced goalies, you can do the same drill but allow the players to move around in a triangle more freely rather than passing and shooting from the designated areas. Between the ages of 12-16, players are developing the physical skills to play effectively within a team in a larger space and, and are ready to be introduced to more complex team concepts in all areas of the game. Repetition - Basic Practice: X carries the ball from the 5m line into the circle, shoots, jogs back and repeats.
Game Context: Attacker receives a lateral pass at the 22m line, and attacks the circle on an angle. Both of these require the use of similar technical skills, but the second example re-creates a more game-like situation for the attacker. The above shooting drills are a very simple example of how to put a skill into game context. The introduction and frequent use of small-sided games is a key element of this stage of learning.
The use of smaller numbers allows more repetition of specific situations than full-field practice games. This drill alternately puts players in numbers-down, even-numbers, and numbers-up situations.
The 3 Cone Rebound Drill will work on stopping the puck from outside shots, rebound control, recovering, covering the puck, handling rebounds and more. With the cost of ice time going up, many teams are sharing practice sessions, especially at the younger age groups. This could be one of the most basic hockey shooting drills out there… but it is also one of the most effective because of the concepts that can be applied. It is also important to put technical skills into game context (incorporating spacial, tactical, decision-making elements).


Defender is recovering from 5m behind, to create pressure and forcing the attacker to execute his shot quickly.
It also helps coaches to create challenging and stimulating new games for players to train with. Conditions such as 3 touches per player possession can be put on the game to create different effects. It is a dynamic drill, fast-moving and fun, but also has a lot of lessons within it about transition, recognizing numerical situations, speeding up and slowing down the game, and much more.
Players must learn to read the pressure, get a pass back to the corner, and execute a give-and-go. However, most coaches (myself included!) don’t allocate enough time in practices to let players develop this skill. The need for half ice hockey drills continues to grow, and has been a highly requested topic from our readers. After the fifth pass, player 1 does a touch-pass give and go with player 3, then another touch pass to player 4. Player from line 1 leaves with the puck and walks up the boards, then cycles back to player from line 2. Player from line 1 drives through the seam for a give and go pass, receives the pass from player 2, then one-touches to player 3 or 2 for a one-timer. First forward passes to the defenseman without a puck then skates around the top of the circle and drives the net. Far defenseman times it and fires a low, hard shot that arrives just as the forward gets to the net. Defenseman who received the initial pass times it and fires a low, hard shot that arrives just as the forward gets to the net.
Forward deflects the puck then stops in front of the net to screen the goalie and get ready for the third shot. Coach dumps a puck in – first player goes into corner and picks up the puck, and cycles it back.


After cycling it back the first player cuts across the top of the circle and drives the net – second player passes out for a one-time shot. The player who just made the pass continues up around the top of the circle, then drives into the corner to pick up the dump, and start the cycle from the other corner. First player leaves hash mark, turns the corner and receives a pass from the next player in line.
He then carries the puck around the next cone, and does a give and go with the passer (P) at the red line.
This will help to lay the foundation for a successful player development, and will result refinement of key technical skills in the particular ways needed at the next level. Refining skill through repetition is important, and the first shooting drill here is an example of something that a player can easily do on his own. The Training to Train Stage is a critical time to begin to move from basic skills and fun games, to introducing both concepts of Skill Repetition vs Game Context. In smaller game situations such as this, players learn that they must communicate effectively and work effectively within the small group in order to be effective and competitive. This combination makes it a great drill for learning at the Training to Train Stage of Development, although it has enough higher-level components that it can be valuable at the Training to Compete and Training to Win Stages. Here’s a quick-paced 1-timer drill that will help get your players’ shots harder and more accurate! So, instead of just doing a video or two, I put together 9 of my favorite half ice hockey drills spanning across all levels of play… beginner to advanced. Executing the same skill under the influence of defensive pressure will help the player to become more effective in a similar situation in a game. I’ve also included a printable PDF version as well as the Importable DrillDraw files, if you want to bring all this stuff to the rink with you.
