The Hand Grenade hockey drill is a small-area, quick-transition drill that is great for developing special-team skills, such as in power play and penalty-kill situations. The drill emphasizes quick passing along with quick-release shooting.



  • Set up 3 players on each team who can score. Players should be arranged in a 1-on-1 battle for possession in the middle and two stationary passers/shooters on each team on the sides.
  • The coach chips in pucks to start, and when the puck goes in the net or out of play.
  • Change up players either on a set number of goals or after a predetermined time.

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.
