Puck races are great for promoting compete level in the players. This is a simple one where players go around one tire, do a control turn around the second tire, and then race for the puck. The player that wins the puck gets to shoot on the net.


Place a mini net in the middle of the zone and inline with the dots. Place tires or cones as shown in the diagram including a couple cones at the start of each line to mark the starting line. The coach will have all the pucks on the far side. Try to pair up players of equal ability.
