This volume is the first in a new series of books from the Czech technical ice hockey school and deals with the basic element of hockey - skating, because of the high playing skills and the tactical ability, demanded by this fast game. The individual will only be successful when the basic skill of ice-skating has become a natural function and is automatic.
The book describes the basics of ice-skating (skating forwards and backwards, braking, skating in a curve, the cross-over forwards as well as backwards, turns and starts). 25 little games to practice the movements as well as 45 skating exercises are included to improve the ice-skating skills, and these have proved themselves in practical work with pupils. In this way, hockey can be successfully taught and coached.
