This puck race requires quick, tight control turns in both directions. It is a nice progression from the Neutral Zone Puck Races #1 & #2.


Place a mini net in the middle of the station and inline with the dots. Please reference the diagram and animation for the placement of the tires / cones. It is also important to try and pair players of similar ability level to compete against each other.

How to play

The coach blows the whistle and the first two players in each line do tight control turns throught the tires. Then they skate forward to the far tire, do a tight control turn, and race for the puck thrown into play by the coach.
