Have your players run the fast break on offense and then work on getting back up field or give your team the re-clear/ transition work in practice that you get in games. This will allow for a constantly moving drill that will get your team working the breaks on both sides of the ball.
Description of Drill-Execution

- Middie must make 1st Defenseman Commit.
- Goalie clears from shot to middie breaking down the wing or to wing defenseman who will clear ball to middie.
- Riding is optional initially but should be in place by mid-season to train attack to pursue ball on clears
- Fast break
