1 on 1 Offense vs Defense (Half Rink)

Drill:

1. The forwards line up in a corner with the pucks (circles)
2. The Defense line up near the goal (triangles).
3. On the whistle forward #1 skates with the puck to the farthest cone.
4. Defense #1 skates forward to the closest cone, transitions and skates backwards
5. Offense tries to get to the net, Defense tries to stop him
6. Goalies should be moving with the play

Focus:
1. Offense focus on Stickhandling, speed skating and shooting
2. Defense focus on transition to backward skating, speed and pushing player away from net. They should not allow the O to get to the net.
3. Goalie should be working on being in position and moving with the play.

Notes:
This drill can be changed up to be a 2 on 1 or 2 on 2. A lot of variations and the kids love competitive drills like this.
You could also just have the Offense skate up around and work on carrying the puck and making the turn.
