One thing that hasn't been mentioned that is essential is the requirement to shoot the puck or ball from the HEEL of the blade - too many kids I teach have a tendency to strike the puck in the middle of the blade. The heel is the zenith point for the power that is transferred down the shaft when the stick is loaded properly from the aforementioned point of striking the ice a few inches behind the puck.
Also, you want the blade turned over in the beginning of your follow-through. This gives the puck it's nice tight spiral. A ball I have no idea the relevance of this -I only play ice and roller
