Through the Gate

Stage of Activity 

All 

Equipment

1 implement per pair (ball, puck, ring, etc), pylons

Time

10 - 15 minutes

Number of People

4+ 

How it Works

Set up various “gates” (markers/pilons set varying distances apart depending on sport and skill level of players). Players run or skate around the playing area passing the implement (ball, puck, ring, etc.) through the gates until the drill is over or you add a modification.

Applications

Passing, accuracy, spatial awareness, agility

Modifications

To make the activity more difficult, have players pass through gates in a specific order.
