Cross Behinds – Power Skating (Video)

Posted by Kevin - Filed under: Instructional Video
Tags: , ,

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
