This drill allows players to work on a basic single shift with the puck but they have to make a decision based on the action of the coach.
Place two nets with goalies (if available) at each end of the station. Split up the players into two lines in opposite corners of the station with pucks. Place an object such as a tire at the half way point between the line and the net and a coach at each tire.
The drill starts on the coach's signal. Players carry a puck towards the tire with their head up. The coach chooses a side of the tire to skate to. The player reads this and does a single shift stickhandling move to the side of the tire that the coach is NOT on. The player then proceeds to take a shot on net.
