Aug. 19, 2020 at 11:25 a.m. MDT

" Tug-A- War", works on balance, agility, coordination and center of gravity. On the whistle, partners attempt to pull each towards their respective ends. After 15 seconds the coach blows the whistle to signify a rest for the players. Have players face a both directions over the course of the drill. Players are not permitted to let go of the stick at any time. If a player falls, the partner stops pulling and allows the player to get up to re-start. Coaches pair the players with similar abilities.

Teaching Points

Skating: The power is in the legs and not the upper body. Pull with the legs and hips. Deep knee bend, eyes up and on the opponent, rotate the hips to use all edges during the battles.
