Couvert pass with direct shot
Couvert pass with direct shot

Curve in toward goal and set up for a wrist shot. Right at the moment you shoot, deliver a pass instead to a team member on the opposite side.

The goalkeeper's sideways momentum creates gaps. Try to aim high or low at the nearest post.

Protect the ball by keeping it behind your body when curving in.

Identify an empty trajectory for the person making the pass and keep an eye on the goalkeeper. Hit the floor with the stick slightly behind the ball. The stick bends and you gives your shot extra power.

Sweeper
Sweeper

When taking a Sweeper shot with a bow run the ball should be way behind your back leg.

Think of it as throwing a ball, in order to get more power, you want to as far behind you as possible so you can get a lot of power through weight transfer and shoulder/hip turn.

While taking the shot you should move almost all weight to the front leg.

Slapshot
Slapshot

Move all of your weight from your back leg to front leg in one fluent motion. The idea is to shift your weight in the direction of the shot. This puts more energy and power into your slap shot.

In your backswing the shoulder turn should be greater than the hip turn, that generates power when release your shot. Make sure to bend your knees to get power from your leg musles.

Beginners often try to hit the ball directly, this is not the proper way to hit a Slapshot. Instead make sure you hit the floor 10-15 cm before the ball, this allows you to load or flex the stick first. Loading the stick is where lot of the power in your slapshot comes from.

Wrist shot - forehand
Wrist shot - forehand

Hit the ball inbetween the legs and close to your body. Let the blade slide along the floor - note that more pressure against the floor increase power and speed of the wrist shot. The stick actually adds alot of speed and power to your shot. 

When you are shooting if you lean into the shot you will load the stick, putting energy into the shaft, which is then transfered to the ball when you release your shot. Your follow through is very important, when you follow through you are essentially aiming where the ball is going.

Tip 1: Added power can be gained from a twitch of the blade when stick is pulled back and then twitching it back when releasing the shot.

Tip 2: You can generate a lot of flex on your stick by buying the a stick with the appropriate flex, which depends on your weight and size.

Sweeper - forehand
Sweeper - forehand

When taking a Sweeper shot the ball should be drawn back behind your back leg. Think of it as throwing a ball, in order to get more power, you want to pull it back so you can get a lot of power. Weight transfer increase the shooting power. 

When you begin the shot the weight is almost evenly distributed, while taking the shot you should move almost all weight to the front leg and push off with your back and front leg, thus putting more power and energy into your Sweeper shot.

At the start of the Sweeper the ball should be located at the heel, or close to it, of the blade While you are executing the Sweeper the ball will roll forwards toward the toe of your blade.

This will give the ball a spin, and also allow you to aim where you want to shoot. Your follow through is very important, when you follow through you are essentially aiming where the ball is going.

Tip- Use your whole body to follow through. Don´t forget to lift your head and look where the goal is.

Outsweeper

The blade should hit the ball under the ball. Vary the angle of the balde in order to get different height with this shot. You want to hit the ball somewhere inbetween the heel and the middle of the blade - the flat spot.

Backhand sweeper
Backhand sweeper

Sometimes a quick forehand to backhand deke is the perfect way to beat a goalie. A player with a good backhand shot will be able to shoot the ball over the goalies legs, top shelf and score more goals.

The first step is to draw the ball back in your stance to the leg furthest from the net.

When hitting a Backhand Sweeper you want the ball at start to be between the middle and the heel of your stick blade. Remember to also transfer your weight into the shot. You want to move your weight in the direction of the shot, this will give your more power.

Do not forget your legs push off really adds a lot of power to the backhand Sweeper Realease the ball from the middle of the blade.

Tip: With a powerful backhand you will also roll your hands over to aim the shot sort of like a snap and roll combined.

The first floorball goalie pitching technique has alot of similarities to cricket fast bowling or javelin, where you run and then throw the ball. 

It is important to use your whole body and not just the arm. If you throw with your right arm, then at the same time you bring back your right arm back you should move your left arm up.

Speed is created through the stretch between the right arm and hip and shoulder rotation - make sure to follow through. Where you place the bounce is important for the length of of the throw.

At Salming Skills Academy you get to learn from the Pros how to strengthen your on court game and become a spectacular crowd pleaser. 

Keep your eyes open and your stick close by - enjoy!

Instruction 1
Instruction 1

Ideally you start out by using one hand. Being left hand side shooter you will be using your right hand, and being right hand side shooter vice versa. At first it's all about being able to keep the ball in the Skills claw area of the blade when performing the circular move on the ground.

Once you succeed in doing this part, lifting the ball off the ground into the air (at your right foot) will come naturally. You need to hold the stick/blade with a few degrees angle when making the left-turn move.

After that you will need to make the stick and blade turn around it's own center some degrees coming into the left-turn part of the movement (at your left foot). This will enable you to keep the ball attached to the blade once you turn to the right again.

Once you learned to manage the one hand part of the Skills move, you add the left hand for support in order to perform more advanced moves such as LeftSpin and the even more advanced move - the RightSpin.

Instruction 2

Picking up the ball and throwing it behind my back towards the left crossbar area. Provided you do this at high speed, it is an excellent way of fooling the goalie to go right while placing the ball to the left.

Instruction 3

Pretending to put the ball at the lower left goal post, making the goalie throw himself in that direction. While doing so, I do a Spinn-around placing the ball at the right goal post.

All alone with the goalie? This is a simple and effective way to score - not to mention the wow-factor ;-)

Instruction 5
Instruction 5

While pretending to make a wrist shot, pick up the ball and make a quick Spin-around and place the ball close to the right goal post. 

A perfect move if the goalkeepers view is blocked by a defender, making him believe that you are about to unleash a wristshot instead of that spectacular Spin-around move.

Instruction 6
Instruction 6

Pick up the ball - throw on one side of the defender - run around, catch the ball and shoot it past the goalie. Execellent one-on-one move.

As he turns his head and makes himself ready to cover the right part of the goal - you stop your move, throw the ball over the goal and shoots the ball into the net.

Please note, do not throw the ball to high in the air or too far away from the goal - that will enable the goalie to get back into position and cover your shot.

Instruction 13
Instruction 13

Is the defender positioned close to the goal post? This Skills-move will outwit him, the trick is to be faster than the defender.

Pretend to go to the right and then go to the left, make a Spinn and place the ball as close as possible to the goal post.
