The 10-Pass Chaos drill is a great exercise that works on special-teams play. Offensive players must constantly strive to get open, as defenders focus on angling and defensive stick skills.

10-Pass Chaos Drill Description

  • Coach begins the drill with a pass to the 3 defenders, who initiate a quick attack
  • After the 6 attackers recover the puck, they must make 10 passes in a row before they can attack either net
  • The 3 defenders maintain pressure on the puck at all times

Key Points

  • Defenders pressure the puck with hard skating and active sticks, while attempting to take away passing lanes
  • If the defenders recover the puck before the 10 passes have been made, they receive a point plus another scoring chance
  • Attackers receive one point for 10 successful passes, and each group gets a point for every goal scored
  • The coach whistles to signal a change, and all players sprint to the far blue line as new players replace them
