-Bring stick straight up and back (not out to the side) on wind up
-Knees bent
-Low flex 85 stick
-Practice!
THANKS! I notice lots of beginner players go for the golf wind-up in the slapshot and it usually takes them years to develop the proper slapper wind-up.

Here is one of the hockey tips videos
