Rotating positions experiences

Hello all,

I would like to have some reflection on following please: As a coach of a 8 team of juniors age 9-10 years old i tend to rotated the positions of players every other game.The reasons for this is that I believe it helps them understand the importance and difficulties from each separate position in the field and so creating a better understanding of the game. Furthermore it gives a positive influence on their learning curve from a technical point of few. Of course I am taking care that everyone stays happy in playing hockey. What are your opinions?

Very good idea. Another thing that might be helpful is to put your weaker players on the right to give them more confidence, because it is natural for players to run and pass the ball from right to left. With your stronger players on the left the ball will come back to the right because the stronger players can pull back the ball to change direction to pass and run in field. Bram
