Speed-Skate Battle

Athletes set up face-to-face.  The backwards speed-skater dictates the speed changes while the forward speed-skater must stay in sync with the back skater.
Focus is on:
-coordination of stick to foot touch with the forward and back hop
-coordination of staying in sync with opponent's movements
-chest and head up
-get low with the legs- no breaking at pelvis
