The Global Skills Summit was a tremendous opportunity to learn from many of the great skills coaches in the game of hockey.
That included Marcel Juhasz, the founder of Marcel’s Hockey School.
Presenting from Germany, Juhasz’s presentation looked at hip turns — a skill perfected by Sidney Crosby — and how to teach them effectively.
“Sidney Crosby was the one who made it popular. Some people even call it ‘the Crosby move’ nowadays. It’s about opening the hips,” said Juhasz.
To teach hip turns, it’s all about building up through progressions, beginning with the basics.
“You need to build it up,” he adds. “There’s a step-to-step build up for the 90% of the players… who are struggling with it, and who need to learn it step-by-step.”
