Drill of the Week: 3 vs 3 Levels

By Minnesota Hockey & CoachThem, 01/12/21, 10:00AM CST



CCM High Performance Girls 15 Development Director and former Bemidji State University women's assistant coach Amber Fryklund shares one of her favorite small area games which emphasizes offensive concepts, communication and puck support.


  • Set one net at its standard position in the crease and a second net between the circles, facing the blue line.
  • Play 3 vs 3 in the zone with a support player along each wall.
  • Players must pass to one of the support players on change of possession before attempting to score.
  • Support players can move laterally along the wall and must pass back to the team that passes to them. 
  • Teams can score on either net. 


  • Encourage offensive creativity and deception
  • Emphasize awareness, communication and puck support in quick transitions
