August 6, 2010, Newsletter Issue #167: Small area games to practice team play

Tip of the Week

You are right about the traditional way of teaching them to carry the puck at a young age and then expecting them to be able to see the ice and pass effectively later.
I think it is important to always play games where the youngest players must pass to all their team mates, or give so many passes before scoring. This should be part of the program along with individual skill development. So we should focus on the individual skill but introduce the small games where team work is also important.
