Whistle Stop Skating

Alternate Direction Skating

This drill combines conditioning and skill skating. Players skate from one end to the other alternating direction each time the whistle is blown. Can do skating forward or backwards, with quick whistles or long pauses.

Coach can run this drill for a set amount of time, or for a predetermined number of 'laps.' For the latter, be sure to let your players reach the far boards in five to seven whistles.
