Simple trick to improve stickhandling (at least it worked for me): Cut a small length of pvc pipe and slide it over your stick so that when you hold the stick naturally, your top hand is holding the section of pipe over the stick. My friend gave me this tip and it has made me a better stickhandler. I think it has something to do your grip, and compensating for the pipe sliding a litle bit. I did this in my garage for about 20-30 minutes a day.

Shooting tip: Sit in a chair, feet flat on the floor and back up against the chair back. Shoot a puck, ball, etc. at a wall while sitting. This will enable you to get more power out of just your arms for your shot. This little trick greatly helped me.

You say you're above average so you're probably better than I was when I started doing these things, but maybe they could still help. They definitly won't hurt your game.
