Does Your Wrist Shot Wobble?

If the puck looks more like a wounded duck than a flying saucer coming off the end of your stick, you may not be getting enough spin on it. Spin is generated as the puck rolls from the heel of the blade to the toe. The faster you snap your wrists, the quicker the puck will spin. The faster the puck spins, the harder and more precise the shot will be. The video below explains the similarities between a whirling puck and a Frisbee.

    It sounds like you answered your own question…TEAMWORK! Try focusing on just two or three areas to improve together. A good place to start is positioning. Everyone needs to understand their role and where they should be in the attacking, neutral, and defensive zone. If you see someone out of position, remind them where they should be.

    A well-positioned team making crisp passes can, at the very least, play keep away from their opponent 🙂 No more allowing 11 goals!

    Here are some half ice hockey drills to try. I like the Give and Go Shooting Drill.
