    If don't have a toe curve, you should definitely shoot from the heel in my opinion.

    im confused about something. earlier in the video you said that the shoulders are facing the front…if my chest is facing the net and my shoulders are facing the net, that isnt a wrist shot?

    Your shoulder is pointed at the net (just one), so chest facing the boards. This sets you up to draw the puck across your body and get a lot more power. You can use your entire body to generate power, your legs, arms, torso, and get more weight transfer. With your chest facing the net (shown in another video) you will use mostly arms and focus mostly on a quick release. I describe that shot in my snapshot video.

    I hold my stick from the side. So I have to hold it on top instead for more power? Does this apply for both snapshot and wrist shots?

    I definetely like these instructional videos. I'm only playing in this amateur league where tackles and slap shots aren't allowed (because people would propably die) so wrist shot, snap shot AND especially the back hand shot technique (which I didn't have at all) are definetly broken really nice into pieces and easy-to-remember steps. Slow motion also helped alot. Only played a couple of years as a junior, but they didn't cover the shooting technique anywhere near this good. Great job!

    That's a good way to start learning and get a feel for the puck, but don't be afraid to start with the puck in the middle. Once you get better start and finish from the toe, a good number of pro's shoot with all toe, but you need to learn how to use the stick and blade first.

    Often the puck is not flying like a frisbee when I do a wrist shot. It wobbles in the air and I lose a lot of accuracy. What can I do to get that away?

    Jeremy,during the motion, just before the release (which would be step 3 in this video), are you creating space between the puck and the blade or are they in contact throughout the entire process up until the puck is released?

    I have this problem too, push down on the stick through the whole shot, make sure to get a quick scissor motion with arms at end to get good spin

    I was watching another video earlier and they were saying to not move the top hand very much (as opposed to pulling back on it in your video). I have noticed amateur players make good looking shots without moving the top hand much. What are the pros and cons of both approaches, quickness verses power or something?

    Hey Jeremy, I'm having a bit of trouble shooting the puck high. in the video you mentioned that you pull with the top hand and push with the bottom. I don't know if that's what im doing wrong, but if I make a video response, could you comment back? and tell me what im doing wrong?

    So much of hockey is technique. You dont even need to be that strong to rip pucks if you do it correctly–so much easier said than done though.

    Ok instructional video for beginners, but once you can shoot, most of what Jeremy is saying isn't going to make you the best.   If you want to play at any higher level you have to be the best of all the players in your circle (and keep being the best at every level).   The quickest shooters can shoot the puck hard, with stick flexing from any spot around their body for quick release.  Slap shots are very rare now because of the space and time required to release them (although still a skill one wants in their repertoire, especially with "one timers").    Also, puck handling is now done with a variation of gripping (both upper and lower hands) for back hand and fore hand toe drags including fore hand toe and back hand toe drag 'dribbling'.  These are only some of the new skills just now coming into the game.   Some of these are futuristic skills of the future game, but you're not going anywhere near the higher levels of this game unless you have something new in conjunction with competitive strength and speed.

    Hey loved the video, but do you think that you could make a video to show all the shots in one video (wrister, slap shot, snap shot, backhand) and show in a real life example what moments would be the best to use those certain shots? I’d really appreciate it

    Also need to keep your head up and look where you want to put the puck.  Feel the puck on your stick.  Good video of basics.  Would have liked to see a wrist shot while skating.

    You explain very well,,,You dissect properly which is useful for beginners…what is funny is that "Wrist shot" translates by "slide shot" in French (from France not Canada…) and "Snapshot" translates by "wrist shot" in French…Oddly enough I always used more my wrist on a snapshot than on a wrist shot so I do not understand why English use this term..that is a mystery

    What's weird, I've watched so many videos and still couldn't shoot. So, started to think why is my stick going under the puck and just fluttering the puck weakly through the air? So, I started realizing you have to do everything in a continuous motion, not a sporadic wrist flicking motion. Your stick has to maintain contact with the puck while shooting it. I know this sounds stupid, but I started to think of it as throwing the puck with my stick and following through, keeping the puck on my stick until releasing it the last split second, after you've generated enough momentum with the puck on your stick. So throwing the puck with your stick, not shooting it is how I see it now.
