This is a simple relay race where players go out to the tire, do a control turn, and then work on forward strides back to the goal line. The players should do a few repetitions working on proper control turn fundamentals first, then do a few rounds of the relay races.

Coaching Points

  • encourage players to trust the outside edge of their inside skate when going around the tire.
  • the inside foot should be slightly in front of the back foot as they make the turn. 
  • players should rotate their chest and head so they look to where they want to go.
  • give players positivie feedback when they make tight turns.
