Inline/Roller Hockey stops
 
I am having trouble learning how to make that large sound when hockey stopping (on rollerblades). This is INLINE Hockey. I got labeda gripper wheels, extra soft, and they are very nice and grippy on the sport court I play on (marple sports arena - indoor).

I can do turns and right now I simply just do a sharp turn, my left leg goes forwards, turns right, and my right leg is "perpendicular" to my left. I am right legged all together.

Can anyone explain how to make that sound? is my form incorrect?

Thanks,

Sam

Can anyone please help me? I just want to make that scraping sound.

if you mean like in ice, where you stop and ice goes all over, you cant really do that in inline (obviously not the ice part) without really messing up your chassis. Ive found that hockey stops arnt the best way to stop while on wheels.


if that wasn't your question, my bad.

Well, how can I stop just quickly? I hear that turning quickly works, but even so I can't make a sound. Most people do that and they make a sound.

Use the search function.

Hi Synergy. I tried using the search function (Roller hockey stops)
I was unable to find anything. Could you help me out? :shakehead

For roller it is about balance. Obviously if you are too high (over your skates) the second you turn them sideways you will flip over. On the other hand if you are too low (towards the ground) you will slide like you are stealing second base. You really just need to practice it and commit. Some people only do it with one foot and have the other foot turned towards the direction they are trying to change to (opposite direction than they were going).

Make sure you have some strong ankles because I don't want you rolling one and getting ****ed up on my account

I play on asphalt not court, so it's near impossible to do a proper hockey stop without busting open your head.

Normally, I just angle my skates out as if I were doing a spin move, and then spin around a couple times which seems like the easiest way to stop right away.

you could drag one skate sideways behind you or like I said with the one skate going the direction you are trying to change too

Thats a rather slow stop, while tight turns is more efficient.

The thread below is pretty good, and in it there is a link to yet another thread which is even better. This question has been answered here many times, and pretty recently too:

Its all about using the outside foot. Basically you turn quickly, using the outside skate to slide and stop.

Yup, that's all. A really good and simple practice is to put on some socks, and go do the slide on the kitchen floor drill. This really will help you and you can have fun too!

yeah it would be, I wasn't sure of the skating level though if they are spinning til they stop

Samcorp 02-25-2009 02:44 PM

Wait. Is the outside foot the main foot you kick with and feel best with? If so, my right foot is my outside foot. Would I then want to turn left to do a hockey stop?

nullterm 02-25-2009 05:13 PM

I think as far as a turn goes, the inside foot is the one on the side of the direction of the turn. Outside is the opposite side which you likely put more weight on.

So if you make a left turn, left foot is inside, right foot is outside.

Starting out you typically put more weight on the outside foot to turn as you lean into the turn.

When you get more experienced you should try to shift more weight onto the inside/front foot so you can turn faster.

Also getting comfortable putting more weight on the front/inside foot allows you to transition into a cross over so you can accelerate out of a turn. But that's a lil off topic.

outside foot stoop put your weight on heal and tranfer to toe most of stopping should be on your back two or three wheels

Yea. I play open hockey on Fridays. (I just started my first time last friday)
