Below are 17 drills (& some games) designed to practise individual penalty killing skills. How these drills are used is up to the imagination of the coach. They can be done as individual drills before or after practise or they can be done is stations.
It is important that the coach stress the fundamentals of killing penalties. Stop players often to correct them and give them feedback. Your penalty killing can be the difference in winning and losing!
