Skate lacing

One thing I notice a lot of Adult rec league players do is wrap their laces around their ankles.

These guys tend to stumble and fall over a bit more than the rest of us.

Last night, I laced my skates up through the top eyelet(normally I don't do this).

I noticed a huge difference in my skating stability. It seems to me that by lacing my skates through the top eyelet of my skate my knee-bend and mobility actually DECREASED.

I don't consider myself a great skater or nothing, but I did notice a huge difference.

Just thought I would share. Laura Stamm says in her book to never wrap your laces around your ankles, and she even says that some players don't even use the top eyelets of her skates. I think she is exactly right!
