The CCM Drill of the Month for November is: 3 Puck Toe Heel, Part 1. Perfect your stickhandling with this drill. Think you’ve got the hang of stickhandling one puck? Try 3!

It can be done in three easy steps.

1. Line up three pucks in front of you in straight line pointing towards the net.

2. Start the drill by going backhand to forehand, heel to toe, between the two pucks.

3. Once through the line, place your shots in the top corners from in tight.

Take the puck closest to you and go backhand to forehand, heel to toe between the two pucks in front. Once you’ve done this with all three pucks in the line, it’s time to shoot. Alternate between a wrist shot and backhand shot until you’ve shot all three pucks on net. Aim for the top corners.

Transfer your body weight from the back foot to front foot as the puck is released with a quick snap of the wrists while turning the blade upward. Pick a target in the net or on the wall and keep shooting pucks until you can master the technique.

Keeping control of the puck with your stick handling will help you get around defenders and keep opponents and goalies on edge at all times. Being unpredictable with the puck and being able to snap off a quick shot will add to your offensive game.
