This is Drill #10 in the HockeyShot Stickhandling Series. Create good stickhandling habits when you work on this drill. All you need is a puck and a stick! View the video and follow the techniques below.
Start with a basic stickhandling position dribbling the puck in front of you and proceed to bring the puck in your feet and kick it back to your blade. Use both feet and tap the puck using both your forehand and back hand.
- Keep the blade of your stick square on the flooring tiles
- Maintain controlled, fluent movement and feel the puck on the center of your blade and feet
- Do not tap the ice/floor
- Start slowly and progress faster once you feel comfortable
- Keep your head up and use your peripheral vision to see the puck
