This drill involves a passer standing stationary at the top of the centre ice circle

The Skater will be skating around the centre ice circle while pivoting from forwards to backwards

It’s essential that you face the passer the whole time your skating around the circle regardless of which direction your skating in.

This is a great and quick drill to set up and perform that requires next to no equipment, this drill can also be performed off the ice with inline skates and a green biscuit or Swedish wooden hockey ball (slightly harder off the ice)
