Re: Balance

Picking up a Piece of Candy - on skates:
1) Stand on right foot with left hand extended over head as if holding a piece
of candy between thumb/forefingers. (It is ok to bend knee a bit - the point is
to find YOUR center of balance.)
2) Slowly bend forward as if to put the candy on the ground.
3) While still bent forward switch hands to pick the piece of candy up with the
right hand
4) Slowly stand erect again
5) Switch feet and repeat 10x

Another thing to do is have skaters play around with balance on different sets
of wheels. While rolling, have skaters lift their front set of wheels on one
foot, the back set of wheels on the other foot, be on only back wheels of both
feet or only front wheels of both feet. Try turning forward to backward while
rolling on only 2 sets of wheels of each foot. It's a good way for skaters to
find balance.

We use the Flamingo. You pick-up speed in the corners then coast on the strait away with one leg held up at 90 deg from the track. Alternate legs and for advanced, try maneuvering around obstructions on the one foot.

You can do this drill off skates or on: Pair up your skaters and have on of them stand still on one leg and close their eyes. The other person walks around them and pokes them. It's a challenge to stay balanced off skates, let alone on.
