Slap shot height

Can anyone advise any adjustments to make to keep the shot lower or make it higher (if there are any)?

Trying to hit it consistently, but seem to get quite a variation. Like to get it right before trying to work it up to putting a hole through anyone.

Uhh, I'm by no means an expert at slappers, but I change my body positioning while striking a bit to determine if I'm shooting high or low. Someone can correct me if there's a better way, but if I lean over the puck a bit, I'll be able to keep it low and controlled, while if I lean back a bit, I'll get more height on it.

On top of that, just aim with your stick toe. But the leaning really makes a difference for me.

This. My advice is also to keep your blade closed on your follow through.

The best way is to develop a feel for it through iteration. Shoot buckets of pucks, some low, some high and bit by bit your brain will internalize the micro-movements necessary to control the shot.

Make sure you're always shooting with good form. Go for control over power. The skill will develope naturally.
