Hockey Drill Demonstration


Players can use this technique when passing or shooting at goal.

Hold the stick with your palms facing upwards and turn the stick so that the flat side of the hook is facing the sky.

The back swing should be short and remain close to the ground.

Place your weight onto your right foot, with the ball slightly in front.

For a pass/ sweep shot ensure you get low and hit the middle of the ball. For a controlled lifted shot players should hit into the back of the ball.

Coaching points

When approaching the shooting circle any defender worth his salt should try to channel you towards your weaker side.

However, by being comfortable when shooting from either side, by using the reverse stick hit, this will help give your strikers the edge!
