Small area game


A hockey game covers a lot of space, however, the small area game might be where you want to focus. It's the trenches of hockey, it's a win or lose battle. Drills and exercises can help players maximize their ability to win small area games. 


Hockey drills in small areas are competitive games played in a smaller area than usual. They can take place on cross-ice, neutral ice, corners, or anything else depending on what is being taught by the coaches.


In this course,  Coach Chris Laperle talks about his upbringing and introduction to hockey. He focuses on the small area game, the close space battles that can make or break a game. He also demonstrates drills he incorporates into his team to help improve your tight space game.
