Hockey Stop

The hockey stop is used when turning to run in another direction.

    • Turn the hips, legs and feet so they are parallel with the end line, like when running line drills.
    • Outside leg is the final decelerator and is the most important leg to control momentum and to change direction.
    • Inside leg begins deceleration because in a normal stride pattern (r,l,r,l,r) it touches down first as the body turns (Taft).
