2 skating drills reprinted from
"EFFECTIVE SKATING DRILLS" !!!

How To Play Playing Tip - practice only one skill at any one time!!!

"Forward/Backward Drill
Goal: Teach players forward and backward skating skills.
Starting Player Positions: Somewhere on the board around the rink.
Equipment: None.
Drill: On command, the first skater forward skates. The next player forward skates after the previous skater goes over one of the lines on the rink. Each time the skaters past a "Blue Line", they turn to skate backward. At the next "Blue Line", the players turn the opposite way from the first turn, then skate forwards until the next "Blue Line". At this "Blue Line", the players make a turn in the opposite direction from the last turn and skate backward. The drill continues until the Coach ends the drill.
Variation: The players switch direction making turns in alternating directions when they hear the coach's whistle."
