…Floorball Goalie Trainer or Goal Scoring Coach, Part 2.
If you look at the Nordic countries in ice hockey most of the teams and players are very skilled when it comes to stick handling and skating, but there is lack of good goal scorers and skilled shooters, why? (of course with some exceptions)
This is simply a result of practicing focus, in USA and Canada a lot effort is put in this area, shooting and goal scoring, while in Sweden and Finland other areas are prioritized. This could also be a advantage to use in floorball, use the strong knowledge in USA and Canada from hockey, to score goals and training skilled goal snipers.
In the end it doesn’t matter how skilled you are with the ball or the puck, what counts is the amount of goals scored.
Of course the first step is to:
1. Create goal scoring opportunities
2. Score goal
3. Defend your own goal
I think a lot of focus is already put in area 3. Defend your own goal, and then 1. Create goal scoring opportunities, but what can be improved is, 2. Score goal when you have the chance.
