Raven Hockey: Game Changing Stick Technology for Youth

Hockey Equipment
Raven Hockey: Game Changing Stick Technology for Youth I don't throw around the term "game changer" very often. And I definitely don't use it lightly! But I believe Raven Hockey sticks to be just that - a GAME CHANGER. Let me explain why. Crash Course in Stick Flex In order to understand what makes Raven sticks so special, it's important to understand how stick flex works. Here are the key points: Every stick made has a number. This number is the "flex." The higher the number the stiffer the flex. This number is established BEFORE the stick is cut. So an 85 flex stick is only 85 at full length. Once you cut it, that number goes up. For me, my 85 becomes closer to 100 once I chop it…

Hockey Equipment Tips for Kids

Hockey Equipment Tips for Kids

Coaches' Corner, Hockey Equipment
Hockey Equipment Tips for Kids Hockey is still a young sport here in Salt Lake City, which means we have many first-time hockey parents. While these parents all share a love of the game, and enthusiasm for their kids being involved, many of them are unfamiliar with the finer points of putting on hockey gear. Over the past few years, I've consistently seen equipment issues with improper sizing (sticks too long), improper wearing (skates too loose, elbow pads upside down, etc.), and even non-usage (no cup?!?). So I felt it could do some good, at the very least in my local organization, to put together a video detailing the key points of how to size and wear every piece of hockey gear, from start to finish. Obviously, this is a…

Declutter Your Training Space with the Evolution Stick Rack If you're anything like me, your home training center probably gets cluttered pretty quickly. We've got 3 boys, who all play... So we've got their sticks, my sticks, plus a few random lacrosse sticks, always out and in the way. Needless to say, the Evolution Stick Rack has been a great product to keep our training center decluttered! Design The stick rack features a simple design, that allows for some versatility with the install. Mount it higher up on the wall, and hang your sticks in the stick rack by the knob; or mount it lower, and set the sticks in it like a conventional stick rack. The double-decker design gives you hanging options, keeps your sticks from swinging, and also…

The SportScreen

Hockey Equipment, Off-ice Training, Skills
The SportScreen is an Awesome Product to Save Your Garage Obviously, I do a lot of hockey training from home. So far, things have been great. My kids are improving (and so am I), and the equipment I've been working with is holding up great! However, I had one vulnerability in my set-up. I have a wall in the basement with two windows. If I ring the puck off the post just right, it ricochets off and hits the window (it has already happened a few times). When I heard about SportScreen, I immediately thought it could be an excellent solution for my window issue... I was right! Unboxing the SportScreen: When you unbox your SportScreen, I recommend opening the instructions and doing a quick inventory. There are quite a…
