There is a nice series of skating drills you can do with the younger kids in the neutral zone in which the setup only involves 4 tires.  This drill works on cross-overs and forward to backward and backward to forward transitions.  Two players at a time can go, one from each side.  As players get better at their transitions and footwork encourage them to increase their speed and make it more of an overspeed drill.  The tranistion from backwards to forwards should be done without cross-overs.  Player should open up their hips to the inside and step into the  forward stride.
