Footwork - Directional Skating

Drill:

1. 3-4 players at a time
2. They start by cross-over stepping to the side while facing the goal.
3. Then backwards skate and stop
4. Cross-over skate to the other side (again while facing the goal).
5. Then forward and stop
6. Repeat until you change direction.

Focus:
1. Good starts and stops
2. Keeping Shoulders square to the goal while skating laterally
3. Quick bursts for starts

Notes:
If no cones, just have the coach whistle and point a new direction.
