PGKA - Coach´s Corner - Butterfly skating passing technique

Always face the puck while skating around the pylons and pass it back to your partner.

There are 3 different variations of this drill:

1) One player is skating around the pylons and exchanges as many passes as possible with the stationary partner

2) Both players are skating around their pylons and pass to each other

3) One player is skating around the pylons and receives the pass when he pivots to backwards, then he skates backwards with the puck around the pylon before he passes it back


If you have more players just use the entire rink and have as many players as possible in motion at the same time. Switch stationary players after approx. 1 minute.


The key points are:

  • passing while skating around the pylons

  • heads up

  • smooth pivots

  • pass can be forehand and backhand
