Lay Back Spin Improvements With Champion Cords (Sheila Thelen)

Sheila Thelen offers some tips to improve layback spins.  She initially explains what she’s looking for in the layback including free foot position and free knee position.  Sheila then shows how to use Champion Cords to help the skater develop the proper awareness of these details.  As she notes at the end of the video, a hula hoop is also a very effective training aid for laybacks, particularly for getting the skater used to going straight back rather than tipping sideways.  Good laybacks are rare but these tips are easy to implement and can make a huge difference. Please leave Sheila a comment.
