Coach Nielsen's Ice Hockey Drills

Play Manager Coaching Software now a FREE Download

I just saw this yesterday and wanted to pass it along to all the readers. I’ve used the Play Manager software for years to do drill and system animations for my teams and now the developers have made the program available for FREE. You can use this software to also draw out your drills/systems and print them with the added bonus of creating animations as well. The software takes a little time to learn, but so do all animation packages, but once you learn how to use it, it can be very helpful. The developers stopped making updates to the program a few years ago but it still works fine. Bottom line is that it’s free and can be used for animations and drill drawing so it’s worth a look. Go to or click the image below.

Couple this software with some basic free screen capture software like Techsmiths Jing and a YouTube account and you can post your drills online for your team to watch.

    Dear Coaches:
    I created an online drawing program to allow people to share their drills and formations. Please check it out, let me know what you think.

    Is there a service, product or site that has pre packaged video clips that are segmented into the various hockey categories such as Fore-checks, Breakouts, Entries, power paly, penalty kill and so on? It would be nice to be able to use during a team video session for instructional benefits.

    Your help is appreciated, thank you
