Teaching fundamental technical skills like skating, passing, and shooting and their application is often best accomplished by using Small Area Games (SAGs). Individual and group tactics like pursuit and evasion are examples of building blocks coaches can use to allow players to discover these skills while playing. This implicit manner of coaching is then supplemented by using effective feedback, questioning and coaching reinforcement.
