A Complete Season of Half Ice Bantam Hockey Practice Plans: Organized and Easy to Use

Download 45 half ice bantam hockey practice plans that follow a full season curriculum of hockey drills.   My brother Boe Leslie of Northern Roots Hockey wrote these plans for one minor hockey association dealing with the challenges of half ice practices, and it’s been downloaded by 100’s of coaches and associations since then! Every half ice bantam hockey practice plan contains a small area game drill, 3 fundamental skating drills, 3 puck skill drills, and a hockey tactic drill.  Check out our section of key teaching points, and recommendations for what this age of hockey player should know about the tactics of hockey.  These hockey drills and practice plans make running half ice or shared ice practices efficient and stress free, and make great use of assistant coaches.  Download the practice plans to manage a high volume of players and save yourself tons of time planning. We’ve checked out many other hockey coaching resources on the internet.  There are so many great drills available online that it seems so easy to waste 30 minutes looking for one, let alone having to then put 6 or 7 together into your hockey practice plan.  Do you ever find that?  If yes, let us take the work out of searching.  We have an entire season of half ice hockey practice plans for you right here.  We believe these plans best suite shared ice practices and bantam house or recreational level. Top level bantam teams need more than we offer in this package.

“I highly recommend the Hockey Drills, Small Area Games, and Hockey Goalie Drills products for all youth hockey coaches.  Boe and Nate Leslie have created a unique system of coach and player mentorship.  I’ve enjoyed watching them develop their coaching business with the same professionalism and passion they brought to the game as players.” Andy Murray, 2011 IIHF Hall of Fame Inductee, 2009 NHL Jack Adams Coach of the Year Finalist

Team Systems Included:

We’ve included team systems in the Complete Season. It is our belief that coaches should first teach team systems off-ice. This way, teams can can implement their dynamic structure while minimizing practice time spent standing around. Ice time is limited and expensive. Our Complete Season takes care of the planning, and lets the coach come to the rink ready to make the best use of ice time. Players learn and improve through fun, competitive practices involving skating, skills, tactics, and small area games. This manual will keep practices competitive as players stay engaged, improve and have fun. Each practice plan includes one team system drill.
