Cross Behinds – Power Skating (Video)
I hope everyone out there had a safe and happy holiday season! We’re back from our short break (and lots of hockey travel) with some new content for 2012.
In this video, we will cover a power skating maneuver/drill to improve backward outside edges. This drill forces players out of their comfort zone with cross-overs by doing a very unnatural cross behind.
Key Teaching Points
- Knee bend
- Controlled upper body
- Weight on the balls of the feet
- Push your toe down in to the ice as you push off
- Listen for a push every step
