Triangle Tag is a simple and fun activity that helps players practice skating, edgework, puck control & on-ice awareness. This activity can be modified in a variety of ways depending on the age & skill level of your players.
- All players get their own puck
- Coaches (or players) are designated as "taggers" and do not have a stick. The more taggers, the more challenging it is for the players.
- On the whistle, the skaters try to navigate the ice and stay away from the taggers.
- If tagged, a player must stop and raise their hand and keep their stick on the ice.
- Other skaters can untag a player by stickhandling through their triangle.
- Players should keep track of how many people they untag!
- Activity should go for 45-60 seconds.
- Can be set up in different areas of the ice (half-ice, a zone, or a station)
- Can use players instead of coaches as the taggers.
- Can add more taggers to make it more challenging for the skaters.
- Can make the area of the ice smaller to make it more challenging for the skaters.
- Players can keep track of how many people they untag (player with the most untags wins the round!)
- Head up! Look around to see where the taggers, other players, and open ice is.
- Use tight turns to get away from taggers.
- Try to untag as many players as possible!
