Key Teaching Point: Work on quick hands and range of motion
One of the most elemental aspects of hockey is stickhandling. Once you learn how to skate, the logical next step is figuring out how to use your stick to control that slippery piece of frozen rubber that sometimes seems to have a mind of its own.
