Contrary to a solid basketball and hockey fundamental, direction changes are not made by way of a jump stop.
ROONEY: "Stay low and don't jump into the turns. A common mistake is to hockey stop, which is wrong because when you're in the air after jumping, you cannot move yourself. Use a one-two touch of the feet into and out of turns.
"Also, keep your center of gravity over the inside leg on the turns. This ensures that you will lean in before the turn happens and not continue moving in the wrong direction."
