Crosby Pivot

Aug. 17, 2020 at 4:29 p.m. MDT

"Crosby Pivot", practices the heal to heal pivot in a very fun way. Two players hold their sticks and on the coaches signal begin spinning in a circle while facing belly to belly. Players have to attempt to keep their heals together. A slight pulling backwards by each player creates spin momentum. After about twenty seconds have the players switch directions. Provide rest and feedback as the players can become dizzy in this drill.

Teaching Points

Skating; Attempt to keep the heals together. Pull your partner slightly to create spin momentum. Avoid dragging your back foot and attempt to glide while balanced on the middle of the skate blade. Remember, we want players to be weighted in Zone 2 & Zone 3 on the blade as it relates to the "Maloney Skate Index". See the Technical Skating Module for further clarification.
