Easy answer is repetition of proper technique.
How old are you?
Advice for a kid is a bit different than advice for an adult.
Coached AAA for 26 years (13-15 yr old boys). All our shooting sessions were wrist shots and snap shots. Our focus was technique, wrist positioning during weight transfer and stick speed. Repetition, on dry land and on the ice. Over these years, we had some of our more successful players (NHL/AHL) return and volunteer as quest coaches to reinforce various skills with our players during our off-season workouts.
fwiw, ... We let the boys work on their slap shots on their own time, not team time.
