Objectives:

  • Backward skating and the backward snowplow are introduced.

  • We do many balance exercises on one skate.

  • The concepts of stride and glide are introduced.

  • Games are used that require the students to move all over the ice with agility.

CARD 3b – BACKWARDS SKATING

These skating exercises are performed individually using formation A1:

  • "Backward skating posture"; seat down, back upright, knees bent, head on top of shoulders.

  • Push off from the boards and glide with two skates.

  • Half squats while gliding backwards.

  • "Duck walk" walk with toes in.

  • Swivel hips from side to side and slalom backwards across the ice.

  • Backward snowplough-stop. Sit low and push out with the inside edges of the skates.

  • Skate backwards by sitting low and bending the knees past the toes, back up and head on top of shoulders. Make a C cut starting with the right toe facing in, now glide and do the same C cut using the left skate. Skate across the ice with the rhythm of: right stride-glide-left stride-glide.

  • Pull a partner with one stick in each hand while skating backwards. Stress bent knees and toeing in then out using the inside edges of the blade.

CARD 10 – 2 on 2 CROSS-ICE SOCCER

Using five or six modified rinks with pylons as goals. Play a cross- ice game with the players in teams of 2. Score by kicking the ball and hitting the pylon. One pass must be made. Offensive and defensive principles are learned, as well as change of pace skating.

CARD 4 – THE HOCKEY STOP

These skating exercises are performed individually using formation A1:

  • Glide on one foot while the other knee is held up.

  • T-push start with glide.

  • Push a partner down the ice.

  • "Flat-footed skating" skating forward with both skates on ice.

  • Glide on one skate.

  • Glide on one skate with the other knee raised.

  • Thrust and push with one skate while gliding on the other.

  • Skate forward and do a one-foot gliding stop by extending one skate in front and sitting low with knees bent. Scrape the ice in front by turning the blade towards the middle so the inside edge is pushing against the ice.

  • Skate backwards and do a one foot stop by extending one skate behind and sitting low with knees bent. Scrape the ice behind by turning the blade towards the outside so the inside edge is pushing against the ice.
