Hey Coaches,

Here is an example of a practice developed for improving or introducing offensive principles. There games are great for developing game like personal skills along side the positive affect of the players learning more about support and movement in the offensive zone. I have ran this as a practice as I have the luxury of a few assistant coaches but these games can be ran in any order or style. These are just examples of games I like to use when focusing on offence.
