Objectives:

  • Improve the skaters' balance and confidence on the ice

  • Introduce the use of all the skate edges

  • Progress to moving and regaining the balance position

CARD 1 – A1 BASIC FORMATION

Description: The players are lined up along the sideboards. The exercises are done with either one or two groups.

Teaching points: A1 is the most basic of all the formations, and is the used first in the teaching system, because the skating distance is short. Divide the players into small groups according to the colours of their jersey or simply number the players so that they have room to maneuver without colliding with another player. When the first group has reached the opposite boards, then the next group leaves. Repeat the same methods back the other way.

CARD 1b – INTRODUCTION TO SKATING

  • Skating posture in forward skating. Knees bent over toes, back upright, head on top of shoulders and not hanging over the ice.

  • Stand on the inside edge of the skates.

  • Stand on the outside edge of the skates.

  • Stand on one skate.

  • Stand on one skate and kick back and forth.

  • Stand on one skate and kick side to side across the body

  • Push a chair or large pylon.

  • Walk on ice.

CARD 7 – CATCH WITH A PARTNER

Play a game of catch with a partner. Use a ball and stand about 3-5 meters apart. This will stress balance on the skates.

CARD 4b - INCREASING BALANCE

  • Walk across the ice

  • While standing on the same spot, try and bend the body in all possible positions.

  • Walk to a puck, bend over, pick up the puck, return to starting point and repeat.

  • While standing try to stand on one foot, then the other.

  • Walk and then glide on two feet.

  • Take a puck in the hand and throw it ahead of you, go to it, pick it up and repeat the exercise until you have crossed the width of the rink.
