Oreo diagram

Oreo 3 V 3 Game from Jason Lammers is a continuous game that is competitive in nature as it forces the defense to work to pass the puck to the next players in line, while the offensive team is trying to score.


  • In this example, 3 players line up on the blue line. The players behind them are on the opposite team.
  • On the whistle, coach dumps a puck into the zone to begin a 3 on 3.
  • The offensive team is trying to score, while the defensive team is trying to pass the puck to the next players in line.
  • When the defensive team passes the puck to the next players in line, the team that was previously playing offense, is now on defense, and the players who just got the puck are now on offense.
  • The game is continuous, keep score!

Coaching Points

  • Offense - support your teammates and be an outlet when you do not have the puck
  • Defense - keep sticks on the ice to block passing lanes and angle the offensive team to the outside of the ice
  • Everyone - communicate with your teammates


  • Can set this up in different areas of the ice and make it 1/2, 1/3 ice, or 1/4 ice
  • Can have this be 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 4v4, or 5v5
  • Can require the defensive team to make a pass to a teammate before they are able to pass to the next players in line

You could add a second requirement - If the defensive clear isn't a successful pass (i.e. it's icing, or just inaccurate), then just throw in another puck, or give the offense an advantage such as getting a flex player to make it 4 on 3, etc.
