Featured this week is the Covid Carousel hockey drill, designed by NHL skills coach Rob Sedia
During these challenging times, the people at Hockey Coach Vision have recognized that coaches need to be innovative when structuring their practices. This allows them to get the most out of the limited ice time they have, as well as work with smaller groups. A group of their more experienced coaches have put together a selection of hockey drills they call the “Covid Crusher” package.
This drill comes courtesy of Rob Sedia, Owner/Head Coach of the NewEdge Hockey Academy in Rochester, N.Y. Sedia is a professional hockey trainer, scout, and NHL skills coach.
- Player 1 passes to Player 2, who passes to P3 who then passes quickly back to P1.
- P2 and P3 start to rotate as P1 passes back to P2.
- P2 then passes quickly to P3, who rotates out to the high slot for a one timer or quick wrist shot.
- After P3 shoots, all other players rotate their positions as shown.
- Quick tape-to-tape passing with one-touch passing preferred.
- Player puts the pass where the other player can shoot it. Aim for their forward skate so the player can step into the shot.
- After a couple rounds, switch sides and run the drill the other way.
Note: The Hockey Coach Vision “Covid Crusher” packages are completely free for all players and coaches. They can be downloaded on their HCV app which is available at their website: hockeycoachvision.com.
