In-Tight – Advanced


This drill is designed to work on quick passes and movement close to the net.  During the drill if a ring is not received and goes past the ringette line, the players will rotate and X1 brings in a new ring. This allows  the drill to keep moving at a fast pace making it a great warm-up drill before a game.

Forwards- Stay as close the the net as possible making quick passes.  They should not be making  stationary passes. Small movements can be made while staying in tight.

Defense-Stick down, head up and push out. Defense should not let forwards use them as a screen on the goalie.
