In this edition of Chalk-Talk, we look at game-like drill which teaches players the concept of off-side.
This is a great game to get players familiar with the off-side rule, especially those who are preparing to transition to full-ice hockey. It’s also an excellent refresher drill to open the hockey season and a quick teaching game that helps players learn a simple but important concept.
Additionally, because the drill is executed cross-ice, it sustains a high tempo and engagement for every player, as well as providing more opportunity for shooting, passing, receiving passes and performing quick changes of skating direction.
