The 2v2 Any Net game from Kendall Coyne Schofield is a great small area game with a unique setup that requires an extra level of awareness.  This game hits on all of Kendall's small area game themes including; moving, thinking, working, creativity, decision making and fun. 


  • Setup 2 nets, 1 in the normal crease and the other straight ahead of it past the circles (facing the center of the ice)
  • 2 v 2 in the middle of the ice
  • 3 stationary support players (or coaches), 1 at the center of the blue line and 2 along the boards at the hash marks
  • Players not in the game line up along the blue line to keep the puck in
  • 1 puck in play


  • To start, coach can pass a puck or chip it in to start a battle
  • In order to go on offense a team must pass the puck to any of the 3 support players/coaches
  • The support player or coach will pass back to the team who passed them the puck to activate them on offense
  • Offensive team can score on either net
  • Defensive team needs to force a takeaway and pass to a support player/coach before they can activate to offense
  • Coach can change players on a whistle after 30 to 40 seconds
  • Coach can throw in a new puck when:
    • The goalie covers the puck
    • The puck goes out of play
    • A goal is scored
  • Keep score!

Coaching Points

  1. Stay alert - this setup requires the players in the 2 v 2 to be on high alert of their surroundings.  Head should constantly be on a swivel when defending.
  2. Jump to open space - after passing to your support player/coach you need to work to find open space to receive the puck back in scoring position
  3. Communication - there is a lot of strategy that can go into this game, talk with your teammates before, during and after each shift to develop a strategy that works with your skill sets
