  • Ron Davidson's 50 fundamental hockey skills and tactics will empower players to excel individually at this team game.

    At last! A book that focuses on the development of individual hockey skills and promotes a mastery of body
    positioning, skating and stick work. Learning these skills gives players a strong fundamental understanding of how to
    move effectively on the ice in any gameplay situation.

    The skills are organized in four sections: Fundamentals, Skating Techniques, Stick Work, and Dekeing and Deception. As
    the reader progresses through a chapter, the level of difficulty of each skill increases, ultimately covering every
    fundamental move and technique needed for an outstanding and total comprehension of the play. Davidson's
    progressive-learning approach teaches beginners the proper techniques, hones the skills of intermediate-level players
    and challenges elite players with the additional skills they need.

    * Forward stride

    * Backward crossunder

    * Drive and delay

    * Heel-to-heel turns

    * Tight turns
