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 36th installment, Hockey Coach Vision continues with “Panther Power Play 3@1.”
“It works on the power play as well as sharpening the defensive skills of the defending players. Coaching points of this drill are: making tape-to-tape passes by the power plays players; move the puck around the outside, take shots, crash for rebounds.” — Larry Huras
This drill is set up like a small area power play. Two players from each team set up with one on the side wall and one on top of the circle. Players should play in the positions that they would play in a game situation. The Coach starts play by chipping a puck to the middle of the zone creating a race for the puck. The player that gains control of the puck passes to his team to set up on offense. The other player must now defend in the middle of the triangle and try to take away pass and shot lanes.
– To insure that both teams get an opportunity to score and to encourage quick attacks, the team that initially gains the puck must score in the first 10-15 seconds of puck possession or the coach signals a new puck in play and passes a new puck to the other team for 10-15 seconds of play.
– Goalies and the defender are encouraged to clear loose pucks to their team mates as quickly as possible to start their 10-15 seconds of attack time.
– Rebounds are live.
– Game can progress to 3@2 by placing an extra defenseman on each face off dot to begin play. This defenseman can only defend.
We are proud to present to you our newest editions to your team, the Goalie and the Coach. They can be added into every drill as new players, or by replacing any existing player you already have. #hockeycoach #hockeyapp #drills #hockeylovers #coaching pic.twitter.com/45IU3RXC24
