Watch drills on youtube or buy a drills book and take it with you and do them. Doing them as hard and fast as you can will push you so when those faster and harder times occur in a game it is now instinctive. If there any adult skills classes take them. Coach will run you ragged. Or bring a friend to stick n puck to be your personal drill sergeant to make sure you push yourself.
I could not agree more. This is how you really get better. However, it's not fun which is why most guys don't do it. They play 3-4 mens league/ pickup games a week and never get past that intermediate level.

It's all in what you want. No guts no glory.

To the adult skills classes. I'm having trouble finding anything besides "beginner" classes.
