So I'm thinking resistance training is the way to go.
agreed! you need to find a stick and puck session to bring your kids to, and then slide them on their bellies up and down the ice. make sure to slide them approximately 15-20 times each way while laying flat in the belly down position. Every 20 belly slides up the ice you should take a 5 minute stamina break, however you are to do this throughout the whole duration of the stick and puck session. You will notice as this will greatly increase your ambidexterity along with your stickhandling, and your snapshot.
