  • start on one leg
  • dip down to generate a powerful push off the leg as you propel your body forward at a 45 degree angle
  • while minimizing ground contact time, load on the opposite leg & perform a quick but powerful push propeling the body forward at a 45 degree angle

Have you player perform these at various speeds. Slow with an exaggerated pause between bounds will really build control. 50% or mid speed will develop both strength and control. 100% or full speed will increase players on ice speed, strength and conditioning.
