Star Drill


The Star Drill- Beginner


The Star Drill is designed to work on passing, communication and driving to the net. During this drill encourage the players to skate before passing the ring. Once the defense is added skating before and after passing the ring will help them make a successful pass.

If the defense is struggling you can ask the players to slow down the passes. Once they have the hang of if speed the passing back up.
