Re: Best place to help improve stick handling skills

I have heard the greats have all visited and practiced at the same place...their driveway.

Re: Best place to help improve stick handling skills

In the womb. If your kid doesn't come out with filthy hands might as well sign him up for soccer.

Like Brad Park...a phone booth...

Re: Best place to help improve stick handling skills

If your hockey player was born with quick hands and is a natural fast twitch athlete. Fast twitch, as in the hand eye and above waist movements are like lightening, then he is better off with a golf ball stick handling in the driveway. If not endowed with the above gifts, anyone coach will do to help him improve.

Re: Best place to help improve stick handling skills

Total waste of money when you can buy him some Roller blades and street hockey balls/pucks and let him tool around the driveway stick handling.

Re: Best place to help improve stick handling skills

Off the ice at home a tennis ball, golf ball in the driveway, basement, his room. Just let him have fun and be a kid. On the ice it will transfer slowly just reps at a normal practice you will start to see a difference over time.

Why do you use words you don’t know the meaning of? It’s not your fault your wife cheats on you, but be better.

Foxy Lady. Brockton. Best stick handling in Boston.

Re: Best place to help improve stick handling skills

I agree, no coach can replace God given, filthy quick AND strong hands. Stick handling is as much strength as quickness. You need strength to control the puck in the face of defenders. It is no accident when you see great stick handlers always end up with the puck thru a crowd or keep the puck alive along the boards in a crowd. If your bender can't consistently handle a bullet pass or win more puck battles in a crowd, then he needs to self improve, the optimum word, self,...not have Daddy spend his inheritance.

Why turcotte? Because it had a really good coach who is no longer alive? That
Makes a ton of sense. You mutants fall for anything ��
