It took some time to let go the idea of "drills" making the little guys better and embracing the idea that just having fun skating in situations that will hone the skills just as well as drills.

The key is to make it fun for the kids, give them the time and space they need, each kid will have a different level and interest, some will want to just skate with the puck endlessly, some may want to shoot, some may ask for tips and others will just puddle around with a friend but as long as they're skating and moving around in space they're improving and most importantly wanting to come back to hockey each and every time out.
