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.
There are three major types of body checks: shoulder check hip check and checking along the boards. The shoulder check is the most common. It is normally used by a defenseman when taking out an onrushing forward : Concentrate on the chest of the attacker since it is the most difficult part of the body to shift quickly keep your feet shoulder-width apart bend your knees and keep the weight on the inside edges of the blades use your legs to drive your shoulder into the opponent′s chest. Keep your head up and your stick down at all times.
MENTAL PREPARATION The game of goaltending is 80 percent mental. Prepare your mind before you hit the ice. Take five to 10 minutes and find a quiet spot where you can be alone to focus. Visualizing plays and seeing yourself make the right play will help you immensely. It may mean the difference between making a mistake and making the right decision at the right time.
