My name is Andrej Lavrov, I’m a hockey coach, but my biggest passion in hockey is: skating. This is one of the reasons I’m doing the ’Crashed Ice’. Sled Dogs is just awesome – love them a lot! …and as a hockey coach I can recommend this thing to hockey players of any level, if they want to have fun; if they want to improve their skating technique… Skating is quite similar to ice hockey – even simple striding on them helps a lot: If you can make the proper stride on the Sled Dogs it will improve your hockey stride – definitely. This helps to improve the balance, this helps to understand the edges, the turns, the jumps and the whole technique of skating (on Sled Dogs) is quite similar to (skating in) ice hockey.
