Our membership is $69 and gives you access to all of the content and functionality for 1 calendar year. A portion of each membership goes directly back to the Eddie Olczyk Award (EOA) which supports young hockey players and teams in Illinois who may not have the means to play at a competitive level.
There are a few selected hockey drills on our free drills page that can be viewed by non-members, however, in order to access all of the animated drills then you need to become a member of the Chicago Blackhawks Coaches Club.
Unfortunately we do not offer any software to help you animate your own drills. However, if there are any drills that you would like us to animate for you, please submit them through the Contact Us page and we will put them in our que to animate for you. Also, if you have any drill diagrams, you can add them to any practices that you create.
Since we have over 360 drills, we created specific categorized drill lists for you to organize the drills that you really like. The current drill lists include Practice Drills, Favorites, Useful, Offensive, Defensive, Passing, Shooting, Warm Up, Conditioning, and 1 on 1 Drills. Whenver you view a drill you can add it to one of these lists by clicking the List button at the bottom of the drill page. That drill will then be added to the corresponding list and you can access it easily through your dashboard.
Drill lists are available to logged in members only. When you view a drill the “Drill List” buttons are located near the bottom of the page. When clicked, these buttons will save the currently viewed drill to that list. That drill will then be added to the corresponding list and you can access it easily through your dashboard.
Adding a drill to your practice is very easy. Once you create a practice through your dashboard you will notice that the practice will show up on the left hand side of the page anytime that you are on a "Drill" page. If you like the drill and want to add it to a practice you can just click "add" to the corresponding practice and it will automatically be added. All of your practices will be listed so you can add the drill to multiple practices at once if need be. Also, if you know the name of a drill, you can add it directly in while creating the practice.
Drills have been categorized into hockey terms (such as breakouts, 2 on 1, passing, etc...) and age groups. You will notice links to these categories along the left hand side.
To print a drill your membership must be active and you must be logged in. Once you are logged in then go to the desired drill page. On the drill page you will see a print icon.
