Hockey Goal Scoring Practices and Drills – Intro

Goal scoring in hockey is a complex skill and knowledge, and there will be no short cuts or direct guidance, ”do this and you score goals in hockey”. It’s more about understanding the different goal scoring skills and knowledge about different factors in goal scoring, since hockey is an open skilled sport (free movement, and moving opponents) and therefore also several factors to be considered. Practicing (repetition) is the key to success and to score goals in hockey. Be focused and try to score a goal every time you practice and you do a hockey practice!
