Then the whole group gets back together and does 2-on-1 up the ice in one direction followed by a 3-on-2 in the other direction, with players rotating in and out such that they go both directions. After about 10-15 minutes, stop for a water break and listen to the coach explain the next drill.
The main focuses are on individual puck skills, positioning/angles, and conditioning... the coaches are both teaching and evaluating at the same time. It's really not that different from a well-organized youth practice, except done at a very high speed and intensity.
Ahh ok, thanks for that. Really helped
And to Logie, Forgot about that BOB camp.. Back in my days no one really cared about it though, my mates were more into the old Anglo Czech camp...
