In-Tight Scoring: Scoring Through Net-Front Scrums
Welcome to the In-Tight Scoring Series with legendary Skills Coach Pete Lenes, a.k.a. Swaggy P! This series is specifically designed to teach players how to take advantage of opportunities down low and in-tight so that they can score more goals!
At HockeyShot, we’re passionate about elevating hockey players’ skills to new heights. That’s why we set out to create the ultimate guide for players to score more goals with elite level instruction and drills from Coach Pete!
As a former D1 player turned 10-year pro, Pete Lenes is passionate about pushing player development to the next level. As the co-owner of Elev802 in Vermont, Pete works with elite players on refining their skills, creating more offensive opportunities, and becoming elite goal scorers. Swaggy P not only constantly pushes the limits of his local players, but also himself, quickly becoming one of the hockey community’s most followed coaches for his blend of high quality instruction, mind-blowing stick skills, and puck control.
And now, he’s here to teach you!
Coach Pete shows us a few of his favourite drills to develop confidence in-tight and unlock the skill to consistently put the puck in the net!
For the last week of the series, Swaggy P shows us a drill that allows you to have fun and be creative! Check it out!
For this lesson, Swaggy P focuses on the importance of keeping your head up and stickhandling skills sharp when navigating your way through net-front scrums.
This drill allows you to be creative!
Place multiple training tools (such as HockeyShot’s Rush Defender and Speed Deke Pro) in front of the net in a random pattern, with just enough room in between for you to fit through. Start navigating your way through the scrum in any direction, stickhandling in-tight and finish it off with a shot to the net. Imagine a real-game scenario in front of the net; pressure’s on and people are blocking shots. You want to work your way through the scrum and get yourself in the best scoring position possible.
This drill is perfect for working on navigating your way through net-front scrums and stickhandling in-tight. Make sure your hands are away from your body, and really get creative with turns and tricks.
Take twists and turns to find the best scoring position and have fun with it!
Get out there and get training!
