A ‘Dictionary’ For Hockey Terms

from Greg Revak of The Coaches Site,

Creating a hockey dictionary for your team goes a long way in increasing your effectiveness as a coach. When implementing, quizzing your players is a highly effective way of holding them accountable and making sure they’re on the same page.

Here is the dictionary I use. This is something any coach can take and expand on. Feel free to copy and paste for your own use. I highly encourage it.

Above the puck/defensive side of the puck – Player positioning so that a player is always nearer to their goalie than the opponent.

Angling – Arching skating pattern that forces an opponent to move in the direction desired.

Area pass – Touch or soft pass to an area of the ice in which a teammate can skate into.

Awareness – Knowing what is going on around oneself.
