2 Cone Fore Check

Back to free drills


On the whistle, Coach dumps the puck on the net. Goalie sets the puck to the side. D goes around the bottom cone as F goes around the top cone. D uses deception to get away from F but cannot go behind the net. F pressures to contact and tries to separate the puck from the D. Continue 1v1 play until the whistle.

Key points

Good angling technique by F with an active stick to try to strip the puck from D. D may use cutbacks and fakes to avoid the F but cannot go behind the net. Variations: 1v1, 2v1, 3v2
