Defenders practice skating backward.
- Players line up at the goal line in the corner of the rink.
How it Works
- Coach blows his whistle or says “Go.”
- First player in line skates backward around each cone.
- When first player is about halfway through the cones, the next player goes.
- After all players reach the center line have them skate backward around the cones back to the goal line.
- Players should keep their knees bent and their chests up as they skate backward.
