    Wondering if anyone knows any good and/or fun drills/ games/ activities to do with kids that are out of the ordinary? looking for ones that are a bit different to what you might get at a 'normal' hockey session

    try "heads shoulders knees and CONES" kind of like musical chairs
    say there are 10 kids, get them jogging on the spot in front of 9 cones (5mtrs away).
    say heads, shoulders, knees (in no particular order, could say... knees, knees, head and shoulders) and they have to touch relevant body part
    when CONES is shouted they race to grab a cone. Reduce number of cones until 2 kids and 1 cone left.

    Depends on numbers and coaches to manage but goal scoring bingo is always good. Small game with keepers, 3v3/4v4, pick a few types of goal/techniques (back space, backhand, deflection etc). First team to score one of each type.

    This would be quite a list for all of them....
    Traffic light game
    Red - stop
    Amber - jog
    Green - sprint
    then add some fun one in
    Speed bump - drop and roll on the floor
    Tow truck - give/get a piggy back until told otherwise
    traffic jam - conga line until told otherwise
    Cops and robbers - name someone cop and it turns into tag, everyone tagged becomes a cop
    flat tyre - everyone sit down until told otherwise
    motorbike - everyone hops until told otherwise
    etc etc etc

    really good for a warm up game for all youth ages, I literally played it with under 16's at one summer camp but set commands as dynamic warm up exercises as well.

    Caravan - everyone gets behind one person, moves slowly and mutters abuse about caravans on the road

    Get on instagram, there are so many videos from summer camps there should be plenty to look at.
