But keep at it, the mechanics are the same, you just have to adjust your height in warmups and you're good. Get that muscle memory down. I worked my ass off with shooting pads off ice for years and have a pretty good shot (the only thing I can do worth a damn).
Thanks. I put pledge on it every day I'm gonna use it. I am gonna play inline though so idk how the pad compares to the tiles we are gonna play on. 2 more weeks till my first game so I'm really excited
