Keepers are going to get aerial shots, however, not every coach, teammate, or parent can do these shots for the keeper to get good practice with. The Flicka fixes this problem. The motion to use the stick replicates a hockey movement and allows for those of us with no flicking ability to create aerial shots with either high or low amounts of ball speed. The stick curve and color are designed to make it more difficult for a goalie to read the ball. Some coaches also use the stick to train defenders on how to trap aerials.
