How to Play Hockey Module 3: Neutral Zone Tactics


Master the tactics of hockey with our 20 week program.  Get started now with Module 3: Neutral Zone.
The Neutral Zone is the zone between the blue lines.  It’s not yours, and it’s not theirs.  It’s neutral!  The ability to keep possession, or regain possession after losing it, in the neutral zone is critical to quick counter attacks, offensive threat, and strong defense.  Games can be won or lost off turnovers in the neutral zone.  We start this module without the puck, in a neutral zone forechecking phase, then assuming we gain possession, we teach regroups and counter attacks, followed by offensive zone entries.

The goal of this course is to create a progression in learning from A to Z, from Module 1 to 5, but feel free to pick and choose the modules you need the most. Learning the international language of hockey is paramount in expanding your overall game understanding. If you do skip ahead, and hear terms in later modules that you do not understand, we recommend starting back at Module 1 and working your way through the entire set of modules.  We built the curriculum step by step, teaching first the terminology, then explore every zone of the ice, from defensive, to neutral, and on to offensive zone without, then with the puck.  Our final module teaches powerplay and penalty killing systems.  Get started now!
