  • Player starts at the goal line.
  • Two cones are placed on each faceoff dot.
Around the Pylons Hockey Stickhandling Drill

How it Works

  1. On “Go”, player skates with the puck on his stick around the cones and back to the line.
  2. Run the drill until you have performed 3 reps going right around the cones and 3 reps going left around the cones.

Coaching Tips

  • You can make this drill progressively harder by adding more pylons, and by increasing the length the player has to skate.
