This is the first in a series of overspeed warm up skating drills.  The players split into two lines in opposite corners of the rink.  Two or three players can go at each time.  Typically two is better unless you have a lot of skaters.  The objective of this drill is to keep the feet moving as fast as possible around the circles.  Make sure players are not sacrificing good cross-over/cross-under technique for quicker feet.  In the middle of the ice the players will need to keep their head up because they may intersect with players comign from the other line.
