Hockey Coach Vision is back with another hockey drill! This week the focus is on the Crossfire Power Play drill.


The Crossfire Power Play drill is an excellent game to work on passing skills as well as defensive coverage skills.


  • Coach forms a box with tires or cones
  • Players compete 2 on 2 within the box and on the outside of the box. The players have teammates on opposite sides of the box.
  • The blue players can only pass to blue and green can only pass to green
  • Teams get a point when a player completes a pass from one side of the box to the other. Players first have to make a pass to a player within the box.
  • Two points are attained if both players in the box touch the puck before getting it to the other side.
