Break Out Drill M. M. McMahon, Ph.D. Laurel Summer 2012
Purpose To practice positioning for breaking out of your own zone Reinforces acquiring and controlling the puck in your defensive zone and transitioning to offensive play By eliminating the opposing players, you get to work on positioning and passing
The Basics Done with all 5 players Uses no players from the other team Everyone lines up on the blue line The puck is dumped in A defensive player gets the puck The offensive players position themselves –Wings on boards, Center makes a U-turn Defenseman passes puck to wing player on same side, or the center Offensive players skate out of the zone together Defensive players skate out of the zone behind them
Setting up All the players are lined up in the neutral zone, facing your goalie Wings line up in the neutral zone on the boards Centers line up in the center Defensemen line up between the centers and wings, each on her respective side
The Steps 1.Second center in line dumps puck into a corner 2.Players move into position The Defenseman on the side of the puck gets it The other Defenseman moves to the front of the net Wings go to boards, and stand next to the boards just at the top of the face off circle The Center skates in and make’s a U-turn toward the side the puck is on Offensive players keep an eye on where the puck is, but be ready to skate forward 3.Defenseman passes puck to wing player on same side, or to the center 4.Center and Wings skate out of zone together, controlling the puck 5.Defense skate out of the zone 6.Repeat for next group of 5
Note The "Player by Player" animation has a lot of mouse clicks in it –This is just to focus on one player at a time –All skaters are going to their positions at the same time The "How it Looks" animation all flows after one click, so wait until it’s done before you click again

Variations The Defensemen with the puck can position herself behind the net to start the breakout –The Center then skates behind the net to get the puck The Defenseman can pass to the center as she wheels around In a real game, the other team’s wings are probably skating to the puck too!
