Welcome to the next installment in a series of videos from Hockey Coach Vision!
Every few weeks throughout the year, the staff at Hockey Coach Vision, including Larry Huras, Filip Kostovic and Franjo Zajec, will release a new training video to help you as a coach pass on hockey-specific tips, training and skills to the next generation of ice hockey players.
In our 40th installment, Hockey Coach Vision continues with “Czech Nati 2@1 Quick Neutral Zone Transition.”
“Quick Transition. Defense: Look over your shoulder, look to see where you want to make that first pass. Forwards: Get loud! If you’re open, let the defenseman know that you want the puck. Quick, stick-to-stick passes and when you get a chance, put the puck in the back of the net.” — Larry Huras
Quick Neutral Zone Transition game with D men passing under pressure.
-Players start in groups of two, alternating from side to side
-Next pair starts when opposite players come over the red line
-Forwards skate forwards while D men pivot backwards in the middle zone. Switch sides after 2-3 repetitions
-Quick feet in the turns while crossing your skates over.
-D men make quick looks back over your shoulders to read fore checkers and find open forwards to pass to.
-D men make smooth pivots always facing ahead.
-Forwards pivot as to keep constant eye contact with the puck.
