  • This handbook is to help the players progress and understand the basics of the different zones, off sides, player positioning and some basic plays we will be using during the year.
    The handbook is interactive and meant to be a fun learning guide. Please take the time to go over the handbook with your child.
    Thank you

    How many blue lines?

    The one in the offensive zone
    Where are the hash marks?
    Where the wingers stand for face-offs

  • Player Positions - Wingers
    Wingers
    Wingers rule the rink. They are fast and attack any pucks entering their areas of play. Wingers are the key to winning battles on the boards and getting the puck back from the other team.
    A few important points
    Winger are responsible for all pucks behind the other teams net, regardless if is on their side, or not.
    Wingers need to avoid getting ‘sucked’ into the play on the other side of the rink in the neutral zone.
    Wingers are to cover the front of our net if the centre and defense are fighting for the puck in the corners or behind our net. They should not be behind our net.
    Right Wing
    Left Wing
  • Player Positions - Centres
    Centres
    Centres are like Batman. They support the wingers, defence and goalie. Centres must always be the first to back check and be the first or second player on the puck
    A few important points
    Centres play high in the other team zone to stop the other team from leaving their zone. Centres will support wingers if they need help on the boards to win the puck. Centres should also be ready to receive a pass from our wingers or defense
    Centres are the third defense in our zone and are responsible for all loose pucks in the corner, behind the net and for covering the other team players in front of our net

  • Left Def
    Player Positions - Defence
    Defence
    Defence are like superheros. They are fast and attack any pucks in our zone. Wingers are the key to winning battles on the boards and getting the puck back from the other team.
    A few important points
    Defence must defend the blue line and keep the puck in the other team’s zone.
    When the puck is in our zone, one defence needs to be in front at all times.
    Defence pairs work as a team to keep the puck away from our net.
    Right Def
  • Offsides
  • Off-Sides
    Identify which Wolves player is off-side? Why?
    Correct. The Wolves player entered the other teams zone before the puck.
    In this scenario, what happens if the player carrying the puck enters the zone with the puck?
    This will cause on offside and the ref will blow the whistle
    Can the offside player get back ‘on-side”?
    Yes by either, leaving the zone before one of our players touches the puck, or
    If the puck if already in the zone, all off side players should all leave the zone to get on side (that is when we yell “CLEAR”).
  • Face-Offs
  • Face-Offs – Neutral Zone
    Objective is to get control and set up an attack.
    C should send the puck back to our defence.
    In the case, the LD gets the puck and has the option of:
    Passing to the RD (#1), or
    Passing the puck up the boards (#2)

  • Face-Offs – Neutral Zone
    What happens if we lose the face-off.
    C covers their centreman.
    The winger on the side of the puck (LW) forces their defence carrying the puck.
    The open side winger (RW) skates in front of his winger and is ready to intercept any passes to either their winger or the other defence.

  • Face-Offs – Defensive Zone
    Objective is to get control of the puck and stop the other team from shooting on net.
    C should send the puck in the corner or on the boards.
    RD job is to protect the front of the net and stop the other team’s centre from taking a shot on net.

  • Face-Offs – Defensive Zone
    We have just won the face-off in our zone, what do we do?
    LD starts the break-out but must move the puck away from the other team.
    LD should skate towards the back of the net.
    RW goes to his hash mark
    C get ready to curl around for the break-out.
    LD has the option to pass either to the RW or the C

  • Face-Offs – Offensive Zone
    Objective is to get control of the puck and get a shot on net.
    C should send the puck to the board side winger of the board side defence.
    C could also have pass it to the RW for a quick shot on net.
    C could try to get to the net, if the other team’s defence is not covering the front of the net. Not the best option.

  • Defensive Zone Coverage and Break-Outs
  • Playing in our zone
    In our zone the wingers and defense set up in a box formation.
    Wingers cover the other team’s defense
    Defence protect the front of the net and get the puck in the corners
    Centres helps the defense.
    Who’s puck is it?.
    The left defence gets the puck.
    Centre provides support
    The right defense covers the front of the net
    As soon as we win the puck both wingers should go to their hash mark to get ready for a break-out.

  • Break-Ins and Offensive Zone Coverage
  • The Break-In
    Objective, get a shot on net or set up a play behind the net.
    On a 3-on-2, puck carrier should enter the other team’s zone using the boards.
    Defence always gives you the board.
    Watch the offsides.
    Second player in the zone (C) goes hard for the net.
    Third player in the zone (RW) stays in the high slot area to either receive a pass or help our defence.
    Option 1: Pass the puck in front of the net or take a shot.
    Option 2: Pass the puck to the player in the high slot
    Make sure the other team will not intercept the pass.
    Option 3: Carry the puck behind the net and look to make a pass in front of the net.
    Excellent heads up play.

  • Playing in their zone
    LW

    C
    RD
    LD
    We will use a 2-1-2 system in their zone.
    That means that the wingers are deep in their zone attacking the puck (LW) or cutting off passing lanes (RW)
    The C plays in the high slot to stop the other team’s break-out.
    Notice the defence on the puck side (LD) inside the blue line and near the board to stop their break-out.
    The open side defence (RD) stays further back of the play and in the middle. The RD should not get sucked-into the boards just in case the puck comes back on his side
  • Playing in their zone
    What happens when the puck in their zone is headed up the boards towards our defence?.
    The defence (LD) must pinch in. That defence must play the puck and send it in the corner
    The C job is to cover for the LD while she is playing the puck. Alternatively, the LW can also cover for the LD.
    If their winger has the control of the puck and is skating up ice, then our LD should not pinch in. Both defence should start skating backwards
    How do we make sure we do not give up a break-away.
    When a defence pinches in, the open side defence (RD) goes back to the face-off circle on the red line.
    Once we have control of the puck, the RD goes back to the blue line.

  • Passing Lanes
  • Playing the puck in the Neutral Zone
    The other team has just passed the puck into the neutral zone
    The puck should be played by the RW, however the winger is not back so the RD will play the puck.
    The C must cover for the RD.
    Notice the LW stays on his side.

    The C must cover for the RD.
    Notice the LW stays on his side.
    What do we do when we get the puck
    The RD can pass it up the boards but then the other team will recover the puck.
    Pass it back to our C, who in turn can pass it to the LD or the LW.

  • Passing Lanes in the Offensive Zone
    Our winger has the puck in the other team’s corner but cannot skate out of the corner to take a shot on net. What are his passing options?
    First try passing it to the player in front of the net, however if the player is covered then:
    Option 1: Pass it to the supporting centre positioned behind the net.
    This is the best option.
    The winger should then skate towards the other team’s net
    Option 2: Pass the to the right defence
    Make sure the other team will not intercept the pass.
    The player must avoid passing the puck to the high slot as this will give the other team a chance to break out of their zone.
    Option 3: Do a ‘give and go’ with the supporting centre.
    Excellent heads up play. Make a pass and skate to open ice to receive the pass back.

  • Passing Lanes in the Offensive Zone
    Our defence has stopped the other team from clearing the puck out of their zone. What are his passing options?
    Option 1: Send the puck back into the corner and let our winger chase it.
    This is the safest choice.
    Option 2: Pass the puck to one of the forwards in front of the net
    Make sure the other team will not intercept the pass.
    Option 3: Pass the puck to the other defence.
    Excellent heads up play but look to make sure their player does not intercept the pass and gets a break-away.
