Bubble Hockey Passing
Passing the puck up from the defense to your offense is vital to playing a well rounded game. Although it is important to take quick shots from everywhere on the table, you don't want to make a habit of it. Instead, work to develop your passing skills so when you get possession of the puck on a defensive player you can successfully pass it forward. If you have a table at your house, passing can easily be practiced during solo play. If you choose to practice your passing during an actual game, just realize that many beginners end up passing the puck to the opposing team on accident.
The core reason why you want to pass the puck forward is because the closer you are to the goal when taking a shot the higher your percentage to score. Not only can you be more accurate from up close, you also give your opponent less time to react and block your shots. One way to keep your opponent on their toes is to pass the puck from one player to another and quickly hit the ball with the stick into the goal. This move is called the one timer and is an effective way to pass and shoot to score a quick goal.
