In this puck race the players we add a forwards to backwards transition and a backwards to forwards transition. The players also work on tight control turns.


Place a mini net in the middle of the ice inline with the dots. The coach is with the pucks at the far side. Please reference the diagram and animation for the positions of the tires / cones. Be sure to have players of equal ability compete against each other as much as possible.
