Defenseman Agility Drill – Video

Simple drills can be extremely effective in developing skills in players if you key on very specific movements and techniques.  This week’s video shows a “simple” agility skating drill to develop transition footwork for defensemen.  Despite the “simple” pattern, the actual execution of the drill is fairly difficult – especially while handling a puck.  The closer the cones are together, the more compact the transition areas become.  The drill forces players to prepare their transitions even though it may not be comfortable to execute.
