Up and Back 2 Part Progression Drill from Topher Scott is a continuous drill that helps work on the transition and communication. There are two parts of this full ice drill: Part 1 is a continuous 1 vs. 1 that turns into a 2 vs. 2 and Part 2 of the drill is a 2 vs. 1 that turns into a 3 vs. 3. Coaches should reinforce communication, transitioning, and getting back quickly.

Part 1 Setup (1 vs. 1 into 2 vs. 2)

  • When the coach blows the whistle, Black F1 & Red D1 begin a full ice 1v1.
  • When the coach blows the second whistle Red F2 & Black D2 head down the ice while the first group (Black F1 & Red D1) stop and skate to join the play and make it a 2v2.
