Coach Nielsen's Ice Hockey Drills


The drills in this section are designed specifically for forwards to work on their skills. Forwards should work on skills such as, quick starts, change of pace, passing, stickandling, cycling and shooting. Many of the drills on this site work forwards in conjunction with the defensemen in team skills. These drills are designed to be run by just the forwards. All these drills MUST be performed at game speed to simulate game situations. Coaches should make sure that proper technique is being used and that players aren’t just “going through the motions”. Goaltenders are not necessary to perform these drills but they can help build the game situation knowledge if available.
