This obstacle course is geared for advanced players at the mite / novice (u8) age level. It includes the following skating fundamentals:
- forward to backwards transition
- backwards skating
- backwards to forwards transition
- two foot jumps
- one foot step overs
- forward stride
To view the layout of the objects be sure to view the diagram. Place a cone about 20 feet straight in front of the line and a second cone slightly staggered almost back at the goal line. Then slightly after the first cone place two borders about 5 feet apart. Next place 4 cones in a square far eough apart so that players can do cross-overs around them. Then place 4 sticks about 3 feet apart at the outer edges of the station as shown.
It might be best to allow players a few test runs before you start the actual races. This way you can have several players going at once and they get more repetitions.
