How to Improve backward skating in hockey like Jason Ward
Jason Ward gives us tips on how to improve our backwards skating. The first point he makes concerns balance and power. You want to keep your feet shoulder width apart and your chest up. The next point is the "C" it. The more you dig into the ice the more power you will get in your strides; as you push your skate outwards, dig in hard and you will go faster. The third point is to head on a swivel. You want to know what is going on around you, so you need to be able to look behind you and be aware of your environment. Use these tips to help improve your backward skating.
