For skating you just have to skate as much as you can, go to public skating lessons, try to find adult power skating classes, play every game of pick-up hockey that you can etc.

Also over the summer get some roller blades and roller blade on a regular basis.

For shooting and stickhandling I have a tonne of articles and videos on my hockey training site. It is all free and I do it to help players like you who don't really have a coach.

Stickhandling and shooting you can practice off the ice, and I sort of see it like 2 steps forward, one step back. You will learn a lot off the ice, but then you get on the ice and it's not quite the same. The important thing is you are improving, you just have to adjust what you learn off the ice a bit to make it stick on the ice.

Also I don't really know if this would help a player who doesn't already have a decent stride but I have been using a slideboard a lot and really like it.
