Practice Notes

This is a 60 minute practice plan that is very well suited for Pee Wee (U12) age level.  The start of the practice includes several full ice warm up drills with a lot of 2 on 0 passing in combination with skill development drills.  The first is the full ice 2 on 0 series.  This series of drills allows players to continuously pass the puck through the middle of the ice and workd on a designated set of skills along the outside.  The goalies can get warmed up by another coach at the other end.  There are three variations and spending 5 minutes on each variation should be sufficient. The next 2 on rush series allows players to work on attacking the zone with two players.  Along one side players work on basic passing followed by a designated zone entry tactic.  Along the other side players can do drop passes or pass & follow before working on the zone entry tactic. These zone entry tactics can then be carried over into the Quick Turn Up 2 on 1 drill. The practice ends with a fast paced small area game in the neutral zone. The outline for the practice is as follows:

  1. Full Ice 2 on 0 Warm Up #1 - 5 minutes
  2. Full Ice 2 on 0 Warm Up #2 - 5 minutes
  3. Full Ice 2 on 0 Warm Up #3 - 5 minutes
