Multidimensional Hockey Drills and Practices

Featured

How should a modern hockey drill and practice look like? How much does the console games affect your players and in what way, something negative or is it an opportunity? What can we hockey coaches learn from the world of console games? These are questions that are handled in the book and transferred as practical examples to hockey drills!

Personally, I am not a big fan of console games, even if it can sometimes, surely be perceived that way in the book. For example, I would prefer that my own children were more physically active than they are right now! Probably I’m not alone about that idea?

But I try to understand, see the possibilities, and handle the new challenges, as a parent and coach and share these lessons, connections, development and opportunities for you as a hockey coach and, or parent.

How do you change a one dimensional hockey drill to a modern multidimensional hockey drill? Or what components are needed in a modern skill developing hockey drill?

Learnings from console games are transferred in practice to your on ice drills and off-ice practices, with over 200 hockey drills in the end.

Hockey 4-1 System / Set Up Russia

I wrote earlier about the Swedish 2-2-1 set up and quite aggressive forecheck, if you then look at the World Champions in hockey Russia, you find almost the opposite, very defensive 4-1 or V set up. When the forecheck is started they have almost a 2-2-1 set up, that is transferred to a wall or trap when they stop the attack from the opposite team. Not maybe fully transferrable to floorball, but I hope this post still will create some thoughts outside the box…

Russia 4-1 system, set up, tactic in Hockey / Floorball

Hockey Formation / System / Tactics

In the International Hockey Coaching Training, during the World Championships in Sweden, we also had the opportunity to listen to the Swedish National Hockey team coach, before each game.

Before the game against Russia, the team formation or system was discussed. Earlier Sweden have been playing 2-2-1 with defined or static roles, and with the mindset of putting pressure when the timing is correct. Since the statement “when timing is correct” can create confusion, he system has been changed, and the valuing part of “when it’s correct time” has been removed. Today Sweden play 2-2-1, but player 1 in top will always put pressure and the roles are flexible, the most offensive player will take the role of being P1 and the player that puts the pressure imediately, the other forwards will then adjust and take the two other roles P2 and P3.
