Description

Two defensemen line up facing each other. As D1 advances, D2 retreats. D1 passes to D2 who pivots, steps up then cuts back creating a 360-degree evasive move. D2 now advances on D1 and D1 performs the same manoeuvres after receiving the puck.

Key points

Nice small area drill for players of all ages to work on pivots, passing and evasive manoeuvres for D Men. D should fake stepping up before making the quick cut backspin move. Try to maintain two hands on your stick while performing the spin move.
