When it comes to effectively passing the puck accuracy is the key. You want to look at your intended target and take your time to make a good hard accurate pass. It′s all in the follow through. It′s important to work on passing in practice. Take your time and work on the basic fundamentals of making a good crisp accurate pass. That way when you get into a game it′s second nature to you.
Don't forget the parents. Most coaches kick off the season with a parents' meeting to lay down a few ground rules discuss philosophies and map out a course for the season. That's all well and good when the season is young and everyone is refreshed and ready to go. Keep the lines of communication open throughout the course of the season with regular meetings and weekly emails so you can discuss issues that may pop up from time to time.
BOUNCE-BACK MENTALITY The best goalies know they′re going to have bad goals and more bad games. In an 82-game season it′s impossible not to. They can shrug it off and not let it get to them. Positive self-talk and a positive attitude are the keys to this. Goalies get scored on but there is no point in letting it bother you. Martin Brodeur has been scored on nearly 3.000 times in his career and it doesn′t bother him. So why should it bother you?
In some ways a breakaway might be easier than a penalty shot because you don′t have time to think about it. On a penalty shot you have more time to think and you know everybody′s watching you. A breakaway is just part of the game. Just go with the flow. Don′t think ‘Oh wow I′m on a breakaway.’ And if you miss just get the puck. Don′t get discouraged. Keep your head in the game.
