    Hi there,
    I'm not a very advanced hockey player and I'm having trouble hitting the ball high into the net, does anyone have some tips for me on how to hit the ball?

    Kind regards,

    you need to get the stick under the ball

    try not go for power and think about geting stick under the ball.
    i find this easiest if the ball is in front of the left leg

    also try different hand positions, easiest if keeping hands apart for more control and just chipping to lift the ball

    good luck

    I like to aim to hit just behind where the ball is to get the ball on the follow through. Try hitting closer and further until I get the right distance to height.
