So today we had a new drill introduced. I don't know what PD calls it but I call it the "Racing" or the "Star Racing" drill.
PD really makes you skate. It's great. I heard someone joking around while doing the various drills, "But what did I do wrong coach?". It's always a fun time playing with these guys. There isn't an attitude of "I'm better than you" or any one saying "That drill is too hard, let's not do it." Personally I hate that attitude.
Someone puts in the time and effort to come up with a drill to help you improve your game (believe me, we all need improvement in some area or another) and you shut it down by saying it's too hard? I think that is a big insult to the person coming up with it.
Great job PD and to the rest of the Ice Dragons team (visitors too of course). They did admit it was hard, but they just went to the sideline to watch and see how it was done. NOT A SINGLE PERSON SAID IT WAS TOO HARD AND WANTED TO GIVE UP ON IT!
In the end, it was pretty easy.
The scrimmage was at a great pace once again. A big thanks to PD for that but also to the team. Their willingness to help, willingness to understand and patience really helps. Those that know, help out. Those that don't know ask for clarification. The atmosphere of "seniority" isn't there. Everyone is just as equal as the next guy (or girl).
On another note, THE WHITE TEAM ANNIHILATED the dark team.
But to keep things on a lighter note, we ended it with a shoot out. Everyone gets a turn. I felt that was a great way to end the practice.
