Description D1, D2, F1, F2 and F3 set up in a low defensive position. Coach fires a puck into F4 to start low 5v5 play. After defenders clear the puck, F1, F2 and F3 must clear the zone then come back in to defend 5@5 again to the whistle. Coach then passes a second puck into the other corner to start second 5v5 play.
Key points Defenders set up in a “Five on the Dice” defensive formation to start. Good communication between defenders on sorting out their low defensive positioning.
