Include this warm up to increase ability, stability and confidence using toe stops.
Ask the skaters to arrange themselves spaced around the track,facing the centre. Instruct them to get up on their toe stops and do a full lap stepping to their left around the track, then repeat for a full lap stepping to the right.
To increase difficulty, you can change stepping to one side to grapevining to the side; instructing skaters to maintain derby stance and focus on keeping their height consistent throughout the drill; or both.
This is an activity that can also be practised at home.
