How can I learn to stop on skates?

Stopping on Skates

Not sure how to stop while on skates? This will most likely take a lot of practice and it is obviously not the easiest part of skating.

First: Try going slowly and as you approach the area where you wish to stop, quickly turn your feet sideways in a motion that allows you to slide along the ice while still digging into it.

Next: All weight must go on your outside leg.

Last: Just keep trying and always remember to keep your balance.
