Lateral Movement

This week’s video covers some easy to run drills to improve your lateral movement.  Whether it be on the playing a rush as a defensemen, or making a move as a forward, lateral movement is important to develop in all players.

Key Points
  • Good knee bend
  • Aggressive stops
  • 2 complete pushes (inside and outside edge)
  • Keep hips squared up ice
  • Keep shoulders squared up ice
  • Keep upper body in control
