Agree with the above, when they can skate forwards and backwards with good balance. There's an archive of Howie Meeker videos on and he says he ONLY teaches the slapshot to kids because they don't have the strength to perform a wrist shot (until they can do 20 pushups or something, around 12-13 years old). But he also says teaching any kind of shooting is not important until they're at least 10, skating, passing, and puck control are bigger because they take more time to develop and don't require strength.
