Round The Dot Shot
A very simple youth hockey drill, but it has some great habits that forwards need to work on.
The first is to keep their feet moving throughout the entire drill. Catching the pass and getting off a shot in stride is a difficult thing to do but a great weapon for any forward. The drill should be run two or three at a time out of one corner and then switch corners. At first have players all shoot using their forehand. This way players will have to adjust if the receive the puck on their off hand. Then have the players use their back hand if they receive the pass on the off hand. Players should be encouraged to use wrist shots, snap shots, and backhand shots.
