One Timer Tips
Tips for Practicing the One Timer
You need to know how to take a slapshot before you will be able to have a good one timer. The key to a good one timer involves two things, timing and body positioning
One Timer Timing
When timing your shot you need to read how fast the puck is coming at you, you want to strike the puck just like you would with a regular slapshot but when the puck is moving this requires some good timing. When you start practicing your timing start with slow passes, and low wind-ups. Don’t try to kill the puck every time, just try to connect with it
After you get better you can try bigger wind-ups and faster passes, soon you should be able to connect with almost any pass:
- If the puck is coming at you slow, you can take your time with the wind up
- If the puck is coming at you fast you need a fast wind-up and you will need to start your swing a bit earlier (so that you can connect with the puck in that perfect area)
One Timer Body Positioning
You will only have a few seconds to adjust your body position once you see the puck coming towards you. You need to ensure that you receive the pass in the “slapshot zone” in order to get the one timer off properly. Remember where you normally hit the puck with a regular slapshot, and try to move your body so that you get the puck in that zone. Adjusting your body position involves taking a stride forwards, backwards or to the sides, if you get a bad pass do not be afraid to bail on the one timer. It is better to just catch the pass and go for a normal shot, than missing the puck, or sending a really weak shot on net.
