The world’s best ringette snipers have a “secret” they all us consistently to score. It’s this:

Get as close to the net as possible (without going in the crease) before shooting.

At, we call this “getting to the Goal Hole.”

Consider the following pictures as proof. Note that these are all DIFFERENT Team Canada forwards, but they are all very close to the net and making the goalie move.

Believe me now? I rest my case.

MOST players are shooting from the hash marks (or above) and wondering why their shots aren’t going in.

That’s why I have a challenge for you.

In your next practice, ONLY take a shot when you are right in front of the crease. And, do anything and everything you can to get there. Climb up, over, and around the defenders to get to the Goal Hole, and watch your goal-scoring take off.

Let us know what you think.
