This volume is the first in a series of books from the Czech technical hockey school and deals with the basic elements of hockey-skating. Because of the high playing skills and tactical ability demanded by this fast game, the individual will only be successful when the basic skill of ice-skating has become a natural function and is automatic. The book describes the basics of ice-skating (skating forwards and backwards, braking, skating in a curve, the cross-over forwards as well as backwards turns and starts). Twenty-five little games to practise the movements as well as 45 skating exercises are included to improve ice-skating skills, and these have proved themselves in practical work with pupils. In this way, hockey can be successfully taught and coached.
