This forechecking drill focuses on timing.  The dump-in is a very important part of setting up a good forecheck.  In this drill the goal is to dump the puck in to the opposite corner and time it so that your players are going full speed crossing the blue line.  This gives a huge advantage to the forecheckers.

It is best to run this drill in lines.  The drill starts on the whistle.  The forwards circle behind the coach and the right winger (in this diagram) receives the pass from the coach.  As the puck carrier crosses the red line, they dump the puck in the opposite corner.  Ideally the other two forwards are going full speed across the blue line.  The player closest to the puck gets the puck in the corner and carries it behind the net where they make a pass to the high slot to either player.
