Passing Progression Drills
This youth hockey video demonstrates three great youth hockey drills for developing puck skills and improving passing. The players must make and receive passes from a stationary position, under pressure and while skating forward and backward.
In order to be an effective hockey player, passer, and playmaker, you need to be able to pass the puck from the stationary position, under pressure, and while moving your feet in a forward and backward skating motion.
These next three drills all build upon each other to practice all of these elements.
We are going to run these drills quickly with one running into the other, a little faster than we normally would in practice, just to show you how all three elements can be practiced through one setup.
Okay guys move the puck.
Normally these drills would go on a little bit longer in between one or the other. You need to be able to pass the puck from the stationary position, under pressure, and while moving your feet in a forward and backward skating motion.
