Drill this after practising lateral cuts (moving quickly from one side of the track to the other).
Groups of two. One person guides the other off the track, by placing their leg closest to the other skater in front of their opponents legs. They should be aiming to get their thigh across the other skaters with their bum positioned behind the other skater, shoulder in front of theirs and into their chest. For this the skater guiding the other skater off track needs to have a lower centre of gravity i.e. needs to have their hips lower than their opponent for this to work.
If skaters struggle to get the movement ‘laterally gallop’ with the back foot to get the power behind the move rather than just skating laterally.
The person driving should be making as much contact with their shoulders and the legs as possible to have full control, they need to be fully engaged (like any 'good' hit, it should involve the full body).
