How to pass the puck/ball

Most of the young goalies focus on raising the puck/ball and getting it out of the zone, but they are forgetting to learn how to pass it on the ice/floor. Defense is expecting hard passes on the ice/floor and not floaters in the air. Keep the movement of the blade short and quick. keep the blocker elbow high and blade closed at all time. For ice hockey goalies the puck should roll from heel to toe of the blade so the rotational force keeps it flat and it does not bounce. Ball hockey goalies are passing the ball without rolling as it will create spin and curved ball like in baseball.
Make sure the stick does not fly high in the air when finishing the pass, as it slows down recovery and return to the net.
