Slapshot Slapshot Presentation Transcript

  • How To Take A SlapshotBy Shane Town Photo by tiffa130 at Flickr.com
  • Step 1: Finding the Right Stick -Just because you write or throw with one hand doesn’t mean you will play hockey the same way. Try out both righty and lefty, then see which one you find more comfortable. Then decide what “flex” you want your stick to be (flexible=small, weaker and stiff= bigger, stronger). • Righty CurvePhoto by Nedral at Flickr.com Photo by Tuchodi at Flickr.com
  • Step 2: Cutting your stick • The general rule is that you want you stick about to your nose (off skates), but once again it’s all preference. Usually defenseman will have longer sticks than forwards.Photo by Let Ideas Competeat Flickr.com
  • Step 3: Tape your stick• Start taping at the heel of your stick, getting closer and closer to the toe as you go.• Overlap about half the width of the tape remembering that any cracks you leave bare could cause the whole tape-job to unravel later. Photo by dooq at Flickr.com
  • Step 4: Choose your location • Anywhere between the top of the circles and the blue line would be the most game-realistic place to practice your shot. • If you don’t have access to ice then find a hard, flat surface or pavement.Photo by Clydeorama at Flickr.com
  • Step 5: Puck Placement• Practice extending the puck far enough in front of you to get a strong wind-up, but not so far that a defender could easily take it.• Also practice the set-up both on moving and stationary. Photo byEricMagnuson at Flickr.com
  • Step 6: The wind-up• Rotate the blade of your stick back so it’s nearly above your head, keeping your bottom hand about halfway down the shaft.• Meanwhile dip your off- hand shoulder down, as the knee on the same side slightly bends. Photo by Clydeorama at Flickr.com
  • Step 7: Pre-Connection• Stay square to the target and bare in mind the further away the puck is in front of you, the higher it will travel• Rotate your hips as you come down toward the puck with the blade, as you straighten you off- hand knee, while bending the other.
  • Step 8: The Connection• Make sure as the blade comes toward the puck that it hits the ice at least 4 or 5 inches before the puck.• This is what determines how much your bottom hand will flex the shaft. This is where the majority of your power will come from. Photo by aepoc at Flickr.com
  • Step 9: The follow through• The toe of your blade should point at the target as your follow through comes to an end.• Remember to keep moving toward the net because in a real game your shot might produce a rebound. Photo by Clydeorama at Flickr.com
