Drill of the Week: Bank Shot Hockey Drill for Kids

Welcome to Drill of the Week, a series on ACTIVEkids.com that explains individual and team drills for parents and coaches to help kids improve at the sports they love.

This week's drill is Bank Shot, a hockey exercise brought to you by TheDrillbook.com.

Description

Bank Shot is a bank, react, trap and release drill. To be successful, players have to work together with focus and precision. Each player lines up with pucks at their feet. One player banks a minimum of four pucks to their partner who must receive and then release the shot over the face down net in an attempt to score in the upper corners. After four pucks, the players quickly switch roles and continue. Players can line up on their forehand or backhand side.

Teaching Points

Passing: Pass the puck on a direct angle to the net and pass the puck hard.

Shooter: React quickly to the puck with the stick on the ice. Trap the puck with soft hands, which are positioned in front of the body. Focus on burying the puck in the top corners and attempt to keep a heads up on the release.
