You basically have no lower body in your shot. That causes your wrists to be the only support for your shot. You may get the shot high, but it will be weak and inaccurate.

Try to bend your knees as you shoot.

Get a straighter blade, could possibly help without you really changing your style how you shoot.

ok first off dont get a straighter blade. Especially if your playing Street Hockey. This might help you shoot lower, but at the same time it will also screw everything else up.

If your worried about your shot make sure you have a good stick. This should go without saying, but playing street hockey myself for several years i see alot of guys with Beat up Wooden worn out sticks and blades, and they wonder why their the worst player in the world.

When you shoot, Shoot!. Dont lift or scoop the puck/ball. Wrist shots should be controlled. No wind up, quick release and keep the stick low. You dont need to drag, but as long as you wrist shot properly it doesnt matter if you do or not. Wristshots are ridiculously easy, with enough practice you can take hard and accurate shots by simply flicking your wrist.

Slap shots are a bit tougher to learn. Id suggest being taught by someone in person, who actually knows how to do them. The most important thing is your follow through. Dont go crazy on slapshots either, Its not about power, especially when your starting out. Worry about accuracy first, then the rest will come.

Also Id suggest learning how to snap shot before you slap shot.

If your shooting high, try keeping your follow through low.

I'd try rolling your wrists over, close the face of the blade over the puck/ball when you're bringing it across your body. Hockeyshot.com is a great resource, check it out.
