As much as this pains me to say it...unlike in ice hockey, look at the ball when doing a move in deck/ball hockey. One of my biggest problems in the transition from deck to ice was that I tried to never look down as if I was awaiting a hit, however, it is crucial that you do this. Also, the most effective move is a basic deke to one side, then shielding the ball with your body as you try to make it around the D. Unlike in ice hockey, always being on the move with the ball is not pertinent to success. If you can simply keep control of it and keep defenders at bay by shielding the ball with your body then you will be fine. I dunno how good of a slapshot you have, but if you are using one of those basic orange balls, then you can usually curve them with enough velocity. Shots from far out are increasingly difficult for goaltenders when this is occuring.
