Shooting Links

The best shooting guide I’ve seen so far comes from Jeremy Rupke of How To Hockey. In it, coach Jeremy starts at the end of the shot and works his way backwards, adding power along the way.

Part 1: Wrist Snaps
Part 2: Adding More Snap Through Push-Pull
Part 3: Moving the Puck
Part 4: Weight Transfer
Part 5: Flexing the Stick


Stickhandling Links

Pavel Barber – When it comes to stickhandling, Pavel Barber has been the best on YouTube for quite a long time. Here are a few links to some of his training videos:

Footwork and Stickhandling – A couple drills using an agility ladder while stickhandling.

Triple Toe Drag Drill – A very simple drill to work on your toe move.

Backhand Toe Drag – Working on a fancy move that can be quite tricky for defenders and goalies to read.


Goaltending Links

I never played goalie, but as a coach, I worked hard to learn about goaltending so that I could help my goaltenders. One area where my teams tended to make great improvements was at goaltending and a lot of what I learned came from YouTube videos.

I plan to put out a few goaltending videos myself, but in the meantime I want to share some links that helped me.

Stauber’s Goalcrease – Has some simple goaltending drills and fundamental skills. Even has a dressing tutorial.

PGD Goaltending – Only a few very old videos, but each one goes through solid fundamental skills.

KC Crease – Drills, fundamental skills, and professional analysis.

Pasco Valana – Goaltending techniques and fundamental skills.

Hope you enjoy. If there’s a good one I missed, please let me know.



This site is finally underway after sitting dormant for years. Still a long way to go, but I am in the process of getting the look right and adding information. Eventually, there will be a moderated forum, plenty of videos for skills and systems, and other information for IL hockey players and parents.
