I'll echo all the tips above, and add one more key faceoff ingredient -- cheat.

Seriously, every inch counts on the dot and cheating a little bit helps. Why do you think guys in the pros get thrown out all the time? Honestly, I was always one of the best on the dot when I played competitive hockey because I'd start swiping as soon as possible. By the time the puck was a few inches from the ground I already have the entire dot on my backhand. It got to the point where the other center would just try to crosscheck me off the dot.

You can bet the other guys are false starting too.
