Welcome to the next installment in a series of weekly videos from Hockey Coach Vision!
Each Wednesday for the next several weeks, 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 eighth installment, Hockey Coach Vision continues with “Jacques Back Check Low Walkout A.”
“This drill is a high level drill that works quick transition from offense to defence. It also has elements of direct attacks off of the Rush with low zone offensive and defensive team play.” — Larry Huras
– F2 chips puck to corner to start battle between F1 and D4. F2 then supports to recover the loose puck and walk out of corner to create quick 2@1 with F3. After initial attack, bank pass up to D for a quick shot with a screen in front.
– On whistle, F6, F7 and F8 head up ice 3@2 and F1, F2 and F3 must back check hard to defend low 5@5
– Dmen can jump up to create a 4@3 rush if they can beat the back checkers up the ice.
