Shoot Low - Rebound High

For age level: 11 to 13

Explanation: Set up the drill by placing a solid object across the mouth of the goal, such as a 2 x 4 piece of wood. Place it up against the posts so it is solid. Players start in one corner, just like a horseshoe drill and skate around the dot outside the blue line then skate towards the net. A coach is positioned on the goal line with puck and send a hard pass just as the cross the blue line. The player must shoot the fist shot from above the top of the circles and shoot it low on the ice to create a rebound. The player then skates to get their own rebound and shoots it high in to the net.

Tips: Anytime the shooter is above the top of the circles or at a sharp angle, they should shoot the puck low. They are shooting for an assist, not a goal. Long shots and bad angle shots up high are most often caught by goalies for whistles and any scoring opportunity is lost. You can increase the game situation factor by having another player skate from the opposite corner at the same time and they are responsible for scoring on the rebound. The next progression is to add a coach as a defensive player in the slot to force the rebounder to fight their way to the rebound.
