This combo skills program will consist of a good mix of:  
  • Backward skating
  • Defensive tactics
  • Evasive / tactical skating.
  The backward skating portion will cover;  
  • Proper hockey stance
  • Starting and stopping
  • Edge control
  • Strid­ing
  • Crossovers / cross-unders and
  • For­ward to backward and backward to for­ward pivots.
  The defensive tactics portion will cover;  
  • D to D and breakout passing,
  • Shooting from the point,
  • Net play and active stick strategies,
  • Defensive positioning and angling,
  • 1-on-1, 2-on-1 play and gap control.
  The evasive skating portion will focus on;  
  • Creating time and space from checking opponents by changing direction (turning, stopping, pivoting, crossovers and shifting gears) and protecting the puck / keep away.
  • Short area games (1 vs. 1, 1 vs. 2 etc.) to simulate real game situations; improve confidence and defensive playing success.
  Ideally suited for but not restricted to:  
  • Adult recreational hockey players of all ages who wish to advance their backward skating and play the defenseman position better in a game.
  Perquisite:  
  • It’s a ‘you and the drill’ - individual hockey development philosophy.
  Note:  
  • The on ice curriculum may vary - depending on the overall group’s skill level. Therefore, some of the more basic drills may be repeated or more advanced drills incorporated / accelerated to maximize overall players’ development.
