This drill video creates a great way for skaters and hockey players to improve and practice their backwards ice skating (power skating) and also general agility while skating backwards. Backwards skating is an essential skill for a hockey player and skater to learn. Why not improve your speed and agility while skating backwards.
This drill will target and improve
- Your general backwards skating
- Edge control while skating backwards
- Changing direction quickly while skating backwards
- Backwards crossovers
- Backwards tight turns
Start this drill off slowly and as you build confidence, increase the speed and tightness of each turn/crossover.
