This week Jon Ammerman, Moorhead High School's boys varsity coach, shares a progressive battle drill that emphasizes puck control and possession.
Split one zone down the middle with cones. On one half, set up two nets. On the other side, split it into half again using cones.
Start the drill with Coach 1 dumping a puck into each zone on that side of the ice. Both F1's race to the far puck and engage in 1 vs 1 keep away. Both F2's race to the puck in the closest zone and play 1 v 1 keep away.
After 15 seconds, whistle blows. Coach 2 dumps a puck in the zone with two nets. F1 & F2 engage in a 2 vs 2 against F1 & F2 in that zone. At the same time, Coach 1 starts F3's and F4's in the next round of 1 vs 1's.
