I have a "dryland" stick that's a few inches shorter and quite a bit heavier than my actual stick.
At least 3x a week I'll try to spend a minimum of 10 minutes (usually winds up being close to an hour about 5x a week) stickhandling in the garage... walking through obstacles, doing "protect-the-puck" stances, headfakes, toe drags etc etc.
I have a sheet of plyboard that I sprayed with some kind of non-greasy sliding coating (I forget what it was) that simulates ice a little better than the concrete in the garage. It's a small piece, so I usually only use it to practice saucer passes and the lacrosse move
I used to have a piece of plexiglass that was perfect, but being a teenager at the time I didn't realize that taking a slapshot on a glass surface *might* cause the glass to shatter!
