Forward Overspeed Competition

This drill is simply geared towards overspeed for forwards in the offensive zone.  To set up, the coach gathers the pucks in the middle of the ice just outside the blue line.  Divide players into two teams and line them up starting on the off sides face off dots.  To minimize the cheating place a couple of cones at the top and bottom of the offensive zone face off circle.  On the whistle the players have to skate around the circle, staying to the outside of the cones.  The coach will play a puck into the high slot.  The first player to get to the puck is rewarded with a scoring chance. You can even make it more challenging by making them go around the circle 2 or even 3 times.  If you go more than three you start to lose the overspeed effect.
