2v2 SMALL GAMES:

 

2v2 games in a small space area are a great way for our young hockey players to practice their skill under pressure.  2v2 maximizes touches on the ball and I have seen enormous growth on both sides of the ball (attack and defense) with my players who have been playing theses last 2 years.  Our 2v2 sessions focus on making quick decisions, exploring tactics and allowing the game to teach them.  It is also an awesome opportunity to have FUN with their teammates as we continue to encourage team concepts and character skills.
