In this race the players work on forward skating, backwards skating, forwards to backwards transitions, and backwards cross-overs.
Please refer to the diagram for the exact placement of the tires/cones. One tire should be place low in the zone straight in front of the line. Three more tires are placed staggered just inside the first tire.
How to Race
Players skate forward to the tire placed low in the zone. Then they transition backwards and use backwards cross-overs to weave through the three tires leading back towards the coach. Then the players battle for the puck set out by the coach.
