Hockey Alberta is excited to work with Ali Stead (@never2late2learn.hky) to bring you weekly off-ice skills drills, as part of the Hockey at Home Series.
Ali Stead is a hockey player and social media influencer. Having only started playing hockey a few years ago, she developed her skills quickly, and is now passionate about sharing her love and knowledge for the game. Be sure to check back every week for the latest drill!
Don’t forget about the backhand! Spend some time working on this to become a well-rounded shooter/passer. Being efficient with the backhand can open a variety of shooting and passing lanes you don’t have access to on the forehand.
- Bend knees and ankles to get into a low athletic stance
- Activate the core for extra power
- Start Puck on the back half of the blade
- Roll wrists over so blade finishes in a closed position
