Designed by Global Skills Showcase presenter Brandon Naurato, this drill combines reading pressure from the defender and using deception to find a supporting forward for a shot on net.


  • X1 starts with a puck and is in front of O1 maintaining position.
  • X1 uses fakes & misdirection to create space between the opposition.
  • X2 times their route to the net. Faster is not always better.

  • X2 finishes with a shot.
  • O‘s begin with the puck on the other side.
