This week we look at the Two-Shot hockey drill, courtesy of our friends at Hockey Coach Vision
The Two-Shot hockey drill is a great passing and shooting drill for defensemen, from pee wees to the pros. It works on passing, pivoting, and shooting skills.
The defense lines up with lefties on one side, righties on the other. D1 and D2 exchange two quick passes, and then D2 backs towards the middle of the ice to receive a pass for a one-timer. Then D2 immediately skates to the net to receive a pass for a quick wrist shot.
The Two-Shot hockey drill works on:
- Getting players (especially younger ones) to take the pass and then shoot it from the blue line
- Emphasizing quick release on both shots and hitting the net, especially on the one-timer
About Hockey Coach Vision…
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.
