I practice atleast 45 minutes a day by myself. I have a net that I use to practice shots and stuff like that. It's really improved my consitancy. I ordered some big Goal targets (that attatch to the poles).

It's really helped me... how much do you practice on your own?

I haven't really practiced, practiced for a while. Last year when I was playing all the time I'd spend hours just shooting a puck and doing stickhandling stuff daily. It does help with consistency and performance that's for sure.

10-15 minutes a day with a stick handling ball, nothing major.

I skate about my town two days a week as part of my cardio regimen, but I'm never outside shooting pucks. My driveway is so small, that I can't really move anywhere on skates, and shootin' pucks or stickhandling with shoes on has never taught me anything.

At the peak of my playing I rented ice around the corner for myself once a week,played open hockey twice,and 1 league game. Anytime I had ice by myself I'd spend the hour handling the puck,head up,while skating doing crossovers back and front,speed and direction changes and limited shooting. I'd take one break and finish with 30 or so slapshots,30 or so wrist/snapshots and the same amount of in tight roofers. I'd only use one puck on the ice til it was shooting time. I never improved!!!

usually around an hour every day with the ball that is weighted like a puck. I just throw my headphones on and it gets me away from all the other **** you deal with in the day

Oh man, how do you guys find the time to do all this??? Do you guys do it in the morning or arvo/night??

I cannot make myself get up in the morning extra early because I'm so not a morning person...and I'm too buggered at night after work.

I do try and stickhandle with a puck on tiles ranging from ~10-30mins inside the house. Don't have a lot of space, and no smooth surfaces outside...so I don't get a lot of 'moving around' practice.

well i just signed up for a dek hockey league that starts in a month. I m a little out of shape more so i just dont have the stamina i used too. so i decided to make up a routine i have been doing the past week and plan on doing until the league starts.

5 minutes of running.
10 minutes of stretching(i'm playing goalie and need to get some flexibility back)
10 minutes of a planed out conditioning exercises
5 minutes stick handling exercise i combine the PVC TUBE, GOLF BALL, and BALANCE BOARD exercises from the http://www.usahockey.com web site.

all in all its only a 30 minute work out but it does help!
