Product Description

A solid set with solid savings - goal! And keep the change! ($49.96 worth of change)with Enrico Blasi,

Stance, hand placement, and proper weight shifting is key to a basic beginning and Enrico Blasi shares a series of excellent hockey drills designed to reinforce them all! The two-hand drill is a basic stick handling drill that is accomplished by rolling the wrist; a progression is the one-hand/two hand drill. Weight shifting is important in the 'short dribbles/wide sweeps' drill. The 'around the world' drill develops the bottom hand as it shifts around the stick. The 'figure eights' drill is similar and demands focus, balance and stick work. Weight shifting and rolling hands are key in the wide sweeps series. Cones can be used on the ice to create excellent drills. Puck handling control is the objective of the straddling the cones drill. Other cone drills include the short dribble/wide sweep drill, head fake drill, tight turns and tight turns box drill. In addition, Coach Blasi shares his key points for puck control and stick handling and the common problems associated with stick handling.

Passing and receiving skills cannot be underestimated and must always be improved upon! When delivering the puck, Enrico Blasi teaches a sweeping motion, with weight shift, and a follow through with the stick. Keeping your head up, hands away from the body and follow through to target are keys to proper passing. Coach Blasi's keys to receiving the puck include transferring weight from front to back, stick on ice to present a target, cushion the pass and soft hands. Keys to the backhand pass include puck in the middle of the blade, sweeping motion to the target and hands away from the body. The flip pass also requires a good follow through. A chopping motion and a short, abbreviated follow through will result in proper flip passing. Blasi demonstrates stationary passing drills such as the forehand pass and the flip pass drill. Other hockey drills include partner passing, follow the pass drill, forward/backward drill, wide and narrow angle passing drill, circle drill, partner cone drill, tight turns box drill, and flip pass drill. Blasi includes keys for the proper slap shot, wrist shot, snap shot and backhand shot, which are also demonstrated in stationary and moving shooting drills.

Enrico Blasi presents some of the finer points of hockey that give players and teams the edge needed for success. Coach Blasi begins by discussing angling techniques for driving the puck carrier to the side. He teaches players to be stick on stick and body on body, with hand down to separate the man from the puck. Body checking takes good technique and execution. Players must be in good athletic position with the stick down and in control. When taking the hit, you should continue moving with your knees bent. Embracing the hit by using the hands and arms will soften the blow. Hockey drills for angling and body checking include the angling wall drill with four drill variations, the shoulder check drill. Puck protection is an essential part of hockey. Key points are keeping your body between the puck and your opponent, keep your head up with knees bent, and use arms and hips to shield your opponent from the puck. The one-on-one keep away is an excellent drill to develop balancing skill. All five puck protection drills shown will help increase your puck protection skills.
