This is Tim McKeig of the UNCW Seahawks and
today I’m going to be showing you how to improve your balance on the ice for ice hockey. Balance
is key in ice hockey. It is going to help you in any aspect of your game. It is needed
while skating, controlling the puck, pretty much everything you can imagine in ice hockey.
Some of the things to remember while thinking about improving your balance would definitely
be your feet position. You are going to want to make sure your feet are at least shoulder
width apart, usually on your inside edges of your skates. Now with your feet shoulder
width apart it is important that you keep your knees nice and bent. You don’t want to
be standing upright that will not improve your balance. The key to improving balance
would be to stay low to the ice to get your center of gravity square. Now also your head
position is very important. While your knees are bent make sure your head is right over
the toes of your skates. If you are leaning too far back or too far forward, that could
present problems with your balance. Now some of the indicators if your balance is good
or not would be if you were to stand and be pushed or checked by another player, if you
were to smoothly slide backwards you would know your balance is good. However, if you
were to be standing upright and push back you would probably fall and lose your balance.
Those would be some ways to improve your balance on the ice for ice hockey.
