Hockey ABC's 
we try to simplify everything in hockey down to ABC's 
asking players to try to think of more than 3 things while they are playing is asking too much

example ;

the puck is in our end
A everyone goes to the box
B head on a swivel
C jump on a man

we are attacking
A ,man with puck carries it wide
B second man accross blue line goes to the net
C third man in goes to high slot


A strong hockey position

B cushion (the puck)

C sweep  (the puck)


A Behind –(puck starts behind back foot)

B Sweep & whip

C shift your weight
