    Stick Handling- Using either side of the blade to control the puck as a player attempts to move down the court without losing control.

    Passing- Moving the puck or hockey ball between teammates using a forehand or backhand.  The See, Step and Strike phrase is a reminder for proper passing and shooting form.

    Shooting- Striking the ball or puck towards the goal with the intent of scoring.  The See, Step and Strike phrase is a reminder for proper passing and shooting form.  We used Forehand (Wrist or Snap) and/or Backhand shots.

    Face-off- is used in hockey to start the game or to restart the game if the hockey ball leaves the field of play.  We use the defensive face-off in PE class to limit contact and to allow time for offensive players to safely cross over to the other side of the court.
