1: Pylon Mania


To learn skating skills, agility and puck control.


Work from both ends. Start from opposite corners and begin at the same time.

Follow the pattern of the pylons.

Next in line starts after player in front has successfully gone around the first pylon.

Key Teaching Points

This is not a race! Emphasize correct technique.

Should be 8-10 players active at all times.


  • 360 degrees around each pylon (with or without puck)
  • No sticks -- touch pylon with inside hand while doing tight turns (this forces skater to bend knees).
  • Pivot from forward to backward at each pylon (with or without puck)
  • Skate backwards (with or without puck)
