How to do matchlike hockey practices?

  1. Start with a warm-up drill, such as a quick skate around the rink or a series of laps around the boards. This will get players’ muscles warmed up and ready for the practice.
  2. Next, focus on individual skills, such as stickhandling, shooting, and skating. Set up drills that allow players to practice these skills in a game-like setting, such as a shooting drill where players take shots on goal from different angles.
  3. Once players have warmed up and practiced their individual skills, move on to team drills. These can include small-sided games, scrimmage situations, and other drills that simulate game play.
  4. As the practice progresses, focus on game strategy and team tactics. Work on set plays, such as power plays and penalty kills, and have players practice executing these plays in game-like situations.
  5. End the practice with a full-scale scrimmage, allowing players to put their skills and strategy into practice in a real game situation. This will give players a chance to see how their skills and tactics work in a live game setting.
  6. After the scrimmage, debrief with the team and discuss what went well and what areas need improvement. Use this information to plan future practices and continue to improve the team’s performance.
