Skating Drills

Need some ideas for 1/2 ice skating drills with and without pucks for mites and squirts. Looking to always add new drills to practices.

split the team into two.
half in each corner.
four cones staggerred up each side . start with "slaloms" about four times up and back (player two starts when player one finishe the first cone.up and back,tell them to keep their heads up!
then make them, do complete circles around each cone again when player one finishes the first cone player two starts.
now backwards skating "slaloms".four times
next backward to forward around the cones.six times
after that add pucks and do forward "slaloms" again.4X
when they are finished. we now place a puck in the middle of the slot and have both sides race through their respective pylons to the lose puck. winner shoots. go through the lines four times.
next drill i'll leave a puck at the end of one of the sides' pylons.that team will pass to the other side after they both finish their pylon"slaloms". the receiver of the pass will shoot , the passer gets the rebound.then switch . so that the opposite team passes etc.
with this setup you can keep adding little twists to the drill
(you can make them pass twice, pass later,etc.)yet use minimal setup time, and the kids are using their edges the whole practice.plus your goalie gets tons of shots from all angles.
when we (7-8year olds)run this , the practices are very energetic and run very smoothly, and the kids love it .we do this setup about every third practice.

Here is a link to some drills a member of our hockey association threw together. He used these in bi-weekly skills clinics lst year. Many are 1/2 ice drills. Cincinnati Amateur Hockey Assoc drill book. USA Hockey used to have their age specific drill manuals on their website but I can't seem to find them at the moment.

Half ice? Iron Crosses. Split them up into two groups, and have them rotate through. Each player goes to the faceoff dot, Does crossovers to the left side of the circle, stops, goes back. Then he goes to the top of the circle to practice quick starts, back again, crossovers to the right, back, backwards to the bottom of the circle (Crossover start backwards if they're good enough), quick start to the center again, and skate to the back of the line.

Go through the lines about 3 times. Works their starts and crossovers.

And all you need are two faceoff circles.

Ok, go here: http://www.passthepuck.net

The knuckle head that runs this site, dropped the price to $5.00 for a 1 year membership. I think he needs to get his head examined...stuoop!

However, don't wait. I hear that the price is going back up Jan. 1st.

I found this site randomly. It has animations to show the drills which is pretty cool.
