U8 Tactic 3 on 3 Offside Hockey Drill


New to is a series of informative drills from Hockey Coach Vision. This week we focus on the U8 Tactic 3 on 3 Offside drill.


Overview of the 3 on 3 Offside Drill

The purpose of this drill is to teach young hockey players about the rule of offside. Players learn they can only go past the cones when the puck goes ahead first.


When the puck is on the other side of the cones, the players must all get themselves on the same side of the cones. This helps players to be mindful of the blueline.

Key Points of the 3 on 3 Offside Drill

  • Promotes good communication among the players
  • Helps to maintain constant awareness of the location of the puck


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.
