NA PREP BACKWARDS SKATING CLINIC

NA Prep will be running a backward skating clinic this Saturday, April 17th, 2021 here in Whitefish.

  • Four hours of ice time,
  • No overnight required for most.
  • Our main focus is strengthening all of our skater's backward skating, helping them to be confident while playing the game backward.

Backward Skating is the most underdeveloped skating stride in Hockey.


Whether your a Defenseman or a Forward, backward Skating is a skill that must be taught and practiced.

​Separation and stride as well as balance will NOT be developed unless you understand the proper principles and realize the footwork needed to gain the confidence required to use this stride as an escape route or to close the gap on your opponent within Game situations.

NA Prep Coaching Staff will teach you the skills needed to enhance your game to the next level in this On Ice STRICTLY BACKWARD SKATING Camp.

  • ALL SKATING will be done BACKWARDS
