There are different skating drills involving the lines of the rink. This article will examine some common drills that can be done and are applicable for different age groups. These drills are good to practise skating, stopping, acceleration and conditionning.
This drill is designed to practise turning, cross-overs and acceleration. The drill is most effective on weak to moderate skaters as the turn radius is too large to be effective for good skaters. To keep the drill effective for good skaters, the circle radius should be reduced for stronger skaters by using cones.
