Objectives:

  • To continue to develop skating skills and concentrate on front and back cross over turning using a number of flat-footed skating exercises.

  • Multi puck games give the players a chance to play and practice the various skills they have learned to this point.

CARD 15 – BACKWARDS SKATING

Have all players perform the following skating exercises using formation A2:

  • Forward skating with extra long strides.

  • Backward skating one length of the ice.

  • Alternate front and back kicks between blue lines while skating backwards.

  • Swivel hips while skating backwards both feet on ice.

  • Two backward figure eights using toe out, toe in flat footed skating.

  • Four backward figure eights using toe out, toe in flat footed skating.

  • Skate backwards and glide between the blue lines, emphasize good posture; knees bent, seat down, head on top of shoulders and not hanging over the ice.

  • Skate backwards and concentrate on toeing in and toeing out, cutting half circles with each stride.

CARD 20 – D2 BASIC FORMATION

Games are played cross-ice with nets, pylons, lines on boards, etc. as the goals. Special rules allow the players to practice individual or team play skills in this smaller area. In this formation many game understanding, reading and reacting skills will naturally be developed. This formation encourages creativity and split vision in more realistic situations.

Activity: Play cross-ice games to experiment with the formation. Add rules about skating, like: only backward skating allowed, or any other skill that has been practiced so far.

CARD 15b - TURNING

Have all players perform the following skating exercises using formation A2:

  • Toe in and toe out skate and glide between the blue lines.

  • Skate forward with extra long strides.

  • Skate forward and do multiple deep squats between the blue lines.

  • Skate forward using flat-footed toe in toe out skating.

  • Two small figure eights while flat footed skating. Stress turning the inside shoulder at the start of the turn. Push with the inside edge of the outside skate and glide with the outside edge of the inside skate.

  • Four small figure eights while flat footed skating. Stress turning the inside shoulder at the start of the turn. Push with the inside edge of the outside skate and glide with the outside edge of the inside skate.

  • Skate one length of the ice backward. Seat down, knees bent, head up and long strides.

  • Skate one length backward with deep squats between the blue lines.
