Aug. 25, 2020 at 5:04 p.m. MDT

"Screwy Louie Tug A War", forces players to work on center of gravity, balance, coordination and edge control. On the whistle players begin in a tug a war with only one hand on a shared stick. The goal is to pull your opponent off balance. After fifteen seconds, the coach blows the whistle and players rest. Ensure players are not close to the boards for safety purposes. Also, implement a no let go rule!! This means the stick is not to be let go during the battles.
