1 on 1 Agility Skating


Drill:
  1. Players start at the wall
  2. On the whistle, they skate toward the opposite side of the circle
  3. Next the transition into a backward skate around the circle
  4. Now it’s a 1 on 1 battle for the puck

Focus:
  1. Quick start and transition to the backward skating
  2. Breakaway speed with the puck or strong back-checking
  3. Goalie should be out of the crease and playing their angles

Notes:
I could see this being a good competition drill at the end of practice.  You could also have them backward skate across the line or even skate chopsticks.
