How To Improve Your Shot When You Get In Tight To The Goal

  1. Bring Your Stick With-In Your Shoulders

    When you get in tight to the goal there is going to be a lot of traffic. So move your stick within your shouders, close to your face, to help protect it from being checked by defenders.

  2. Keep Your Elbows Out

    Even though you are moving your stick inside your shoulders, remember to keep your elbows wide. This helps give you space to operate, follow thru and generate more power on your shot.

  3. Remember To Follow Thru

    Just like shooting on the run, your follow thru dictates where the ball is going to go. Snap your wrist and follow thru low for a nice low shot or end high aiming for that top corner.
