I took a power skating class when I started playing minor hockey. I was also a late bloomer, only starting minor hockey at 14. It helped wonders. I don't really remember detailed drills other than the fact that they were repetitive. I remember a lot of start/stops and suicides as well as a lot of emphasis on tight turns. Every drill we did skating forward, we did backward plus I believe there were a few drills done only backward. I play every position and I find that my backward skating is better than my forward skating.
