A shoot the duck is
a fun ice skating move where the skater
bends all the way down to the ice and glides on one foot
while kicking the other foot completely forward.
No one really knows how this move got its name.
But in England we call this move a tea pot.
- Bend both knees completely
and squat down as far as you can go into a dip position.
Do the dip while moving as fast as you can in a straight line.
- Place one hand under a calf
and the other hand on a knee and stick the leg that is holding the
If you fall, you are already almost on the ice, so a fall should
not hurt at all and may even be fun.
- If you donít fall, just bring
the leg that you sticked out back down next to the one that stayed
on the ice and get into a two foot dip position again.
Now, stand up, glide on two feet, and continue skating.
- Put as much weight as you can

- Don't lean backward.

really fun when doing shoot the ducks since skaters find it fun to

Some figure skaters are never able to do great shoot the ducks.
Don't be discouraged if you can't master this move.
