Advanced Edgework Drill Video

Over the last two weeks, we’ve shown you the basic inside edge and outside edge drills.  This week we’re going to cover an advanced edgework drill for skaters who have mastered the basic edges.  The drill begins by alternating from the inside to outside edge on a single foot, performing a single-foot stop (without putting the other foot down at all in between), then regaining speed by performing quick inside edge c-cuts.  The drill requires body and ankle control…and a lot of balance.  Enjoy the video:

Outside edge control is essential for effective turns and transitions.  Check out M2 Hockey’s latest training video for tips on teaching and performing drills on your outside edges:

Key Teaching Points:

  • Weight toward the heel of the skate
  • Don’t let your ankle “flop” over
  • Bend your knees
  • Look the direction you are turning
  • Maintain control of your upper body
  • Let your stick lead you through your turn
  • Turn your shoulders into the turn (without dipping one shoulder)
