some of the teaching details for pivoting or transitioning from skating forwards to backwards will be very helpful for your player. First, does the player go toes first or heels first? Second, transition quick and have the players incorporate a shoulder check. Third, have the player try and avoid wide slow turns. And finally, the player ideally should have their back to the middle of the ice, giving up the outside lane.
