Stop high scoring forwards using the Defensive Skating System! Adam Nicholas has taught this effective system to players and teams at every level - youth, high school, college and the NHL.
Crossing over gives your opponent time and space to create trouble for your defense. This system enables defensive players to stay square to an opponent, recover, maintain a tight gap and maintain speed without crossing over.
Players of all levels can use this system. It starts with a simple T-push and advances through 20 progressive drills and skills for improving defensive skating, such as:
Also included are stick handling tips to improve defensive performance in tandem with skating techniques.
This is system isn't just for defensemen. It's for any player who needs to shut down a rushing opponent. Order now and start improving your defensive skating.

Quality information for defenseman to show young skaters.
Excellent teaching video on the importance of proper technique in player skating.
I would offer that this DVD is better suited for coaches who run clinics and have the time to really implement the techniques described within. You certainly could do this in smaller segments throughout your weekly practices but I think it would be best taught in a clinic setting and then reinforced during the weekly practices.
Another thing is you will need to be a solid skating coach to make the techniques used here easily teachable.
Pay close attention at the beginning of the video because Coach Nicholas uses the terms Lidstrom, Niedermayer and DK to describe specific type of skating techniques early in the video, and then later keeps referring to those techniques, so be sure to understand each when first introduced and it will make things easier.
I think that this is also the type of video you may want to show to your team in a group setting if possible so they can learn directly from Coach Nicholas.
The video is well produced and the camera work is solid.
