The Nashville 1 vs 1 is a two-part battle drill. It combines a high speed rush and a down-low battle, which will test the creativity and speed of your forwards, as well as the gap control and lateral agility of your defenders.

Drill Description

  • On whistle F sprints under blue line and then picks up a puck on the opposite side of the red line, goes on to attack D that has sprinted across to gap up
  • After 1 vs 1 is done, F picks up a new puck in the corner and attacks D for a low 1 vs 1. Coach will signal when battle is done
  • Progression: 2 Fs leave from each side and attack 2 vs 1
