One of the best ways to give yourself a leg up on the season is to develop a year plan. It will make practice planning easier, and can really focus you and your assistants on effective player development. And it doesn't have to be overly detailed. In fact, it may be better if it isn't.
After you've had a chance to evaluate the level of play your team is at, take an hour or so and set achievable goals for your group. Review your plan with your assistants. With good feedback you'll soon have a plan everyone can buy into. When it's time to plan your next practice, one quick reference will remind you where you can focus the drill set.
If you don't have your own template, here are a couple of year plans that Pinnacle Hockey has provided to get you started. One is simple and the other is detailed. Both are effective! There is even a sample plan so you can see how they look once developed.
