Fluid Motion and Jumps
Intro to one foot glides – on each foot for the length of the track turn and straightaway
Sharking – moves fluidly from side to side of the track, performs smooth lateral cuts, crossing the track at least 3 times on the straightaway and 2 times on turns https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAg4fRwJCjw&list=PLif92Hk7nSXLbPWxFa0N6LjxtbpQB1pHR&index=14

Introduction to Pushes – pushing receiver in the (muffin top) area with ample force to provide noticeable change in receivers skaters direction, pushes are centred and even, parallel to the floor, maintain balance, uses momentum to accelerate , able to take speed and skate out of it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQ0SA7EhbfE&list=PLif92Hk7nSXLbPWxFa0N6LjxtbpQB1pHR&index=17
Practice jumping laterally without skates, then practice hopping with both feet bringing your knees up and feet towards your bum,
