Wrist Shot - Forehand


Hit the ball in-between the legs and close to your body.
Let the blade slide along the floor - note that more pressure against the floor increase power and speed of the wrist shot

The stick actually adds a lot of speed and power to your shot. When you are shooting if you lean into the shot you will load the stick, putting energy into the shaft, which is then transferred to the ball when you release your shot.

Your follow through is very important, when you follow through you are essentially aiming where the ball is going.

Tip 1 - added power can be gained from a twitch of the blade when stick is pulled back and then twitching it back when releasing the shot.
Tip 2 - you can generate a lot of flex on your stick by buying the a stick with the appropriate flex, which depends on your weight and size.

 

Slapshot


Move all of your weight from your back leg to front leg in one fluent motion. The idea is to shift your weight in the direction of the shot - This puts more energy and power into your slap shot.

Straight arms in backswing will help you to avoid high sticking. Make sure you do not exceed the waist limit in your back swing.
Beginners often try to hit the ball directly, this is not the proper way to hit a Slapshot.
Instead make sure you hit the floor 10-15 cm before the ball, this allows you to load or flex the stick first.
Loading the stick is where lot of the power in your Slapshot comes from

Tip It is better to be accurate then to shoot at 180 km/h. You will never score a goal if you do not hit the net.

 
 

Sweeper - Forehand


When taking a Sweeper shot the ball should be drawn back behind your back leg. Think of it as throwing a ball, in order to get more power, you want to pull it back so you can get a lot of power.
Weight transfer increase the shooting power.

When you begin the shot the weight is almost evenly distributed, while taking the shot you should move almost all weight to the front leg and push off with your back and front leg, thus putting more power and energy into your Sweeper shot

At the start of the Sweeper the ball should be located at the heel, or close to it, of the blade.
While you are executing the Sweeper the ball will roll forwards toward the toe of your blade.
This will give the ball a spin, and also allow you to aim where you want to shoot.
Your follow through is very important, when you follow through you are essentially aiming where the ball is going.

Tip- Use your whole body to follow through. DonĀ“t forget to lift your head and look where the goal is.

 

Outsweeper


Hold your chin up and try to locate the net. A quick upper body rotation increase the power of the shot.

Do not be afraid to flex your weight on your stick, which will give you an extra energy and power to your OutSweeper

Make sure you upper body is rotating enough so that you are not only using your arms when shooting.

Turn up towards the net and strengthen the motion by pointing your stick towards the net assuring your shot has the right direction.
