In Coaching Hockey, Drills by CoachThemLeave a Comment

Tempo matters at practice! If you’re looking for a high-energy, fast-paced (and potentially physical) 2 vs 2 drill that will keep your players on their toes, the Bill game is for you.

Drill description

  • Coach spots puck to initiate 2v2 small ice.
  • On whistle, the 2v2 is done. Players leave puck and hustle to their teammates. New players can’t leave until both previous players have gone past the pylon. Penalty shot for flagrant violations.
  • If puck leaves the area, coach is ready to spot new puck in area. If goal is scored, coach is ready to spot new puck in area.
  • Keep score to have a reward for the winners or a punishment for the losers.

Key points

  • Ultra-competitive game
  • Can get out of hand physically, so be ready to police it.
