If your up to it, do some sort of an off-ice team build. Laser tag, Paintball, Go Kart racing or even something that incorporates more teamwork. IE: some sort of nature walk where they need to help each other.

If you can't do off-ice stuff, being hard on them in the beginning and then rewarding them for their efforts can help as well. When I played HS baseball, wind sprints and base running drills were the worst, but to have the coach allow us to have a home run derby instead of practice at the end of a tough week made it so much better. We respected the coach and would do anything for him. The balancing act comes in when you have to realize that if your pushing someone too far that they just will not WANT to come and play.
