m in an adult clinic and most of the group have better skating skills than me. But, over half the passes I received in one drill (not moving) where at my feet, not on my stick.
You're not going to be a great stick handler right away. At least be able to make a good pass. And receive one.
No matter what, have fun.
I love my adult clinic for this reason! I'm not terrible at receiving a 'good' pass, but I have a lot of trouble with bad passes. I
working on passing with people that are worse then me. It helps both of us so much, because I have to pass a lot more accurately for them to catch it, and I have to work harder to stop their bouncy pucks/pucks at my feet, etc. and of course they're working on something they need too.
Quick edit: I mean this for "regular" passing. When I'm trying to work on something more advanced like saucer passes, I tend to work with someone above my skill level so they can tell me what I'm doing wrong. I try to do the same for the people worse then me when we're doing those "regular" passing drills. Seems to benefit everyone this way.
