Don't get discouraged if you still have trouble. I'm at the same stage and it's a lot easier shooting off concrete or even plastic sheeting than off ice. The lack of friction on ice makes it a bit more challenging. It's why "loading the stick" becomes important. You want the stick blade to be right against the puck up until the moment it leaves the ice. Right now I understand the concept but am having a hard time with the technique.
