Defense Drill 1: Quick Up


Agility for defense and accelerating into open spaces for pass.


D1 starts drill by skating forward toward X1, D1 pivots at red line and receives pass from a moving X1.

X1 continues without puck and picks puck up next to D1 line and goes in for shot on net.

D1 -- after receiving pass -- skates with puck backwards around pylon, pivots forward and hits X2 with tape to tape pass.

Key Teaching Points

Quick feet by defense and quick response by X2 to get sense of quick transition.
