Shooting & Dodging

Our Shooting & Dodging series concentrates on fine tuning the skills you need to maximize your direct scoring abilities. Each age group will be limited to a small number of players to maximize reps. The following is a list of some of the core fundamentals we will teach and practice throughout the sessions:

  • Shooting on the run with accuracy
  • Becoming a better finisher around the net
  • Understanding how goalies think and react so you can beat them
  • Dodging strategies from X, Wing or above restraining line
  • Stick angles to increase shooting and finishing accuracy
  • Superior foot positioning to become a better dodger and shooter
  • How to read the defense to dodge effectively as well as how to escape trouble
  • Re-Dodging to set up your “signature” (go-to) move
  • Weak hand dodging to set up strong hands
