C.A.T (Confined Area Training) GAMES

C.A.T (Confined Area Training) GAMES

**NEW PROGRAM**

C.A.T. Games stands for Confined Area Training Games. 

PROGRAM DIRECTED BY: RYAN MOORE

This program is focused around play with the puck in confined areas. This method of development is used from the beginner level all the way to N.H.L. practices. C.A.T. Games will include coach controlled in zone battles, corner battles, and keep away battles. Confining the space forces players to adapt to the added pressures all while having TONS OF FUN!

“They don’t even know they’re training and developing”
-Adam Oates on Confined Area Training

Some Benefits of C.A.T. Games are:

On Offence:
– Players have limited time and space with the puck
– Players learn to transition quickly
– Players are forced to lift their head to find more or better options
– Players are forced to make quick decisions
– Players are forced to handle and control the puck
– Players learn or improve net front presence
– Players learn how to create time and space
– Players learn how to get open or shake coverage

On Defense:
– Players learn how to position themselves defensively
– Players learn to take away time and space
– Players learn to read their opponents movements
– Players learn how to control their opponent (containment)
– Players train reaction time
– Players learn better and/or more efficient ways of taking the puck from opponents
– Players learn how to transition quickly
