1.) Beginner Shooting Drill – (quickness & accuracy)
In this drill you will fake to your backhand and pull the puck to your forehand, releasing a quick shot on net, using the defender (represented in the video by the hockey stick and folding chair). This will catch goalies off-guard in games if you can become an expert at this drill.

Similar to the shooting drill above, in this drill you will fake to your forehand and move the puck to your backhand, releasing a backhand shot on net.
3.) Backhand Shooting Drill
In this drill you will have pucks in a line. You will start at the puck closest to the tarp and move back a puck each time after you fire a backhand shot on goal. This is designed to help improve every aspect of your backhand shot (power, accuracy & quickness).
4.) In-Tight Hockey Scoring Drill
In this drill you have pucks placed right in front of the tarp and will try and flip the pucks into the top corners of the tarp. This is a great goal scoring drill for forwards, and simulates receiving a rebound in front of the opponents net during a game.
