Three Great Hockey Drills for Private Sessions


They skate in a figure eight and transition around the cones so they are always facing the stationary player. The entire time the two players are making as many passes as possible.

It can be tricky to come up with unique, useful, and fun hockey drills to use in a summer session where you only have a couple of players.  These are hockey drills you can pass along to players to do at stick and puck as well.  Two people are required for each one of these hockey drills because of they all incorporate lots of passing.  The diagrams for each hockey drill are at the end of this post.


This hockey drill is similar to the Swedish Shooting Drill but modified so that you only need two players. The player starts in the corner without the puck and takes three hard strides forward and transitions backwards.  The coach or second player gives them a pass and the receiving player gives it right back to the stationary player.  The two players make as many passes back and forth.
