Tip: Once you get the pattern, try to go faster!

At Home JHD Skills: 2 Puck Figure 8 Stationary Stickhandling

Being able to 'cup' the ball on both our forehand and backhand requires both our top and bottom hands working together. Try to move the ball in a figure 8 pattern in one direction until you get the hang of it then switch directions.

Tip: Challenge your friends to see how many rotations you can make going both directions without losing the ball.

At Home JHD Skills: 4 Puck Figure 8 Stationary Stickhandling

Being creative when handling the ball will only help to improve our puck control. Have four pucks set up in a box and control the ball in figure 8 patterns on both the forehand and back hands sides.

Tip: Once you are able to get the pattern down, reverse it and go the other way. Move the pucks to make the box smaller or bigger to challenge ourselves to control the puck in smaller or bigger areas.


One leg stationary stickhandling

This at home drill builds leg strength + puck control. JHD Coach Venla Hovi stands stationary while stickhandling on one foot on a balance pad (or pillow), forehand/in front of body/back hand side stickhandling.

Tip: try to control your hip and ankle to stay in a good position and work on getting your eyes up while controlling the ball.

One foot hops and stick handling

It's really important to work on balancing on one foot for hockey because it improves power, strength, and balance. - JHD Coach Venla Hovi

Tip: Make sure you have your full foot on the ground when hopping. You're controlling your hips, and your arms are off the body for stickhandling.

Lateral Skating Jumps

Be creative and work with the space you have at home. Use chalk for lines, go on the sidewalk, or in your garage. This helps generate power while working on balance when stabilizing and maintaining control of the puck.

Tip: Jump for width and try and stabilize and pause when landing on one foot. Bring the ball outside of the body to protect it and try and keep your eyes up as much as possible.

Quick Feet With Stickhandling

This is great for coordination and making your feet and hands to work in sync.

Tip: Use any ladder movement while stickhandling at the same time, try and control the ball while moving your feet as fast as possible.

Side Hops with stickhandling

This is important for balance, stability and power. Stickhandling adds a coordination component.

Tip: Try and keep your upper body in control and eyes up. Maintain a good knee bend and control your ankle, knee and hips.

Stride Work Leg Strength

Work on full extension of the pushing leg, keep your chest and eyes up and arms off the body.

Tip: Maintain a good knee bend and try and keep your full foot on the ground to stay balanced.
