September 3, 2010, Newsletter Issue #171: Shooting drill

Tip of the Week

This is a simple shooting routine that we use a lot at the start of practice to warm up the skaters and the goalies.
It is from the B5 formation with all the players inside the middle circle.

The players are in the middle circle, half the team on each side of the red line.

Players all take shots from one lane at a time. The first player goes and the next player waits until he/she is far enough away that the goalie will be ready for the next shot. (the older and faster the players, the more space between shooters).

Do a sequence of wrist shot, backhand shot, slap shot from each lane. Then drag and shoot. All shoot from lane 1, then lane 2, then lane 3.
