Hockey - Slap Shot

Still Pictures

Stance: legs shoulder width apart by abducting. Your dominant arm should be flexed 35-45 degrees on the mid part of the stick and the other should be flexed 10 degrees on the top of the stick. trunk should be slightly flexed

Wind Up: Flex the trunk by moving in the Transverse plane, Dominant arm  Raise the hockey stick so the blade of the stick is about even with your head by abducting and hyperextension the shoulder joint. Elevation of the shoulder girdle and  will help increase the momentum of the shot.

Forward Shot: use all of your force to make the stick swing forward by Adducting the shoulder jount through the transverse around the longitudinal axis and frontal plane around the anteroposterior axis by leaning towards that shot, balance is important. Ulanr deviation and supination of the ulna radial joint should be used in order to get the best shot. Make sure not to invert or evert the ankle. Flexion through the saggital plane around the mediolateral axis of the non-dominant leg helps improve balance. Also plantar flexion of the non dominant foot, avoid dorsiflexion because it will throw off your center      of gravity.

Recovery: Put weight back on both feet.

Novice video:

Back was not flexed or extended, didnt put all of his force into the shot making it difficult for the shot to be effctive. 

Expert Video:

Back bent, leaning into the shot, balanced, all of the force going through the stick.
