Building on the fundamentals of open hip turns, coach Marcel Juhasz presents a competitive race drill that integrates this widely used technique.
- Both players start as the coach plays a puck down the middle (no whistle).
- Players skate with puck to the circle then open hip from hashmark to hashmark.
- At hash players pass puck to next player in line, crossover around rest of circle, skate around pylon in the neutral zone and race for puck.
- First player to reach puck has a breakaway and second backchecks.
