the same thing happened to me two years ago when my local league switched to sport court. on the wheels i used to use me feet slide out from under me whenever i tried to do anything but skate forward. when i tried out the softest wheels i could find i shred them in two periods.

eventually, youll get used to it tho. without thinking it, youll start to adjust the way you turn and stop so you wont fall.

i found that it helped to keep my feet spread a little farther than usually when i stop, and with turning and cross overs, you just need to practice. when you warm up before the game, work on your skating at 3/4 speed and focus completely on control and agility.

its gonna take a little while to get used to sport court. it almost took me an entire 18 game season. good luckkkk
