This puck race includes backwards skating, forward to backwards transitions, and backwards to forwards transitions.

Set Up

Please refer to the diagram for the set up of the tires. One tire is placed straight in front of the line close to the goal line. The other tire is placed slightly staggered to the inside high up in the zone and closer to the coach.

How to Race

Players will start forwards to the first tire placed low in the zone. They transition to backwards so they remain facing the direction of the goalie. They skate backwards to the tire high in the zone and transition forwards to battle for the puck.
