2 on 1 mid ice hockey drill

This week the experts at Hockey Coach Vision focus on the 2 on 1 Mid Ice Transition hockey drill



The 2 on 1 Mid Ice Transition hockey drill consists of a small-ice game that promotes quick transition, and works offensive and defensive skills in fast-developing 2 on 1 situations.



  • The two nets are moved forward to create a small neutral-zone playing area.
  • Two teams are formed and line up facing each other.
  • Next, two players from each team line up and face each other at center ice. One player from each team must always remain in the offensive zone to create 2 on 1 situations in both zones.
  • The coach starts play by passing an elevated pass between the players, who must knock down the puck with their sticks.

Hockey Coach Vision is an application used by hockey coaches that allows them to digitize drills and tactics in animated 3D, which can then be shared. The app works on Mac or PC, as well as on iPad and Android tablets.

This powerful coaching tool enables hockey coaches to design virtually any game situation. It uses animated 3D, so that coaches can view all their plays using various 3D perspectives.

Your drills can be shared with your players and assistant coaches. PDFs can be generated to keep everyone in the loop with your practice plan. Monthly plans can be created by placing your practice packages and notes into your calendar. Manage your team and use it within every aspect of your practice plans. Use video or picture recordings to store a play, analysis, drill, technique, etc.
