The Hit & Clip Hit

Hitting a hockey ball

  1. Hands together an inch off the top of the stick
  2. Ball in line with front foot
  3. Body 90 deg to the direction of intended ball travel (left shoulder pointing where you want the ball to go)
  4. As you swing bend down so left hand passes in line with left knee during the swing
  5. Follow through

Extra – do it while the ball is slightly moving – “step into the hit”
