Hockey Coach Vision is back, this time with the Low Race 2-on-1 hockey drill


The Low Race 2-on1 hockey drill is a very competitive skill-building exercise. This practice drill is for players of all ages that works on sprint starts, puck protection, and quick-counter 2-on-1 in a small space.


Coach places a puck on the dot. Player 1 and Player 2 then race for it. The winner (P1) passes to P3, pivots out over the blueline, and attacks back against P2. P2 now moves out to the blueline for the next repetition.

  • Quick transition from attacking to defense
  • Shoot the puck and drive to the net for rebounds
