Pylon Plus Review




The Pylon Plus can be a Great Way to Add Diversity to your Drills

I recently had a chance to check out the Pylon Plus. It’s a great little product, and gives you an easy way to add some diversity to your drills!

Pylon Plus

Plylon PlusWhat you get
The Pylon Plus comes with the following items:

  • 8 weighted pylons
  • 8 plug inserts
  • 6 extendable hurdles
  • 1 durable carry bag
  • Instructional booklet with sample drills

Benefits of the Pylon Plus:

  • Kit extends up to 17 feet (over 5 m)
  • Can be used on or off ice
  • Collapsible for easy transportation

My Experience
I used the Pylon Plus for the first time during a camp I was running. I hadn’t messed with it before, and didn’t set it up properly. This made for a very sub-par experience. However, I realized afterward that I hadn’t pushed the insert plugs in far enough, which made it so the slightest bump would blow the whole unit appart.

After proper assembly, the Pylon Plus is actually quite durable, and can withstand a pretty good jolt without falling appart. So make sure you get those insert plugs set properly, and you’ll have a great time using this one!



Use these Dryland Training Kits from HockeyShot to set up Structured, Well-Organized Dryland Sessions with your Team!

I recently had the opportunity to do a detailed review on HockeyShot’s Dryland Training Kits. So I took my boy Tyler down to the tennis courts to have a workout and make some videos. We had a great workout, and had a blast putting these videos together.

These kits are available in three different sets; the Starter Kit, Premium, and Premium Plus. I reviewed the Starter Kit, and was impressed with how much equipment it came with, even for the lowest-priced option! All three kits are fantastic. The main difference it that the Premium and Premium Plus kits come with more equipment (Speed Chutes & Plyo Hurdles)

In this post, I’m including 6 videos that highlight each product in the Starter Kit, and give a few ideas of drills you can run with each piece of equipment. After you pick up your kit, I recommend watching the instructional DVD that comes with it. The DVD contains over 300 drills… definitely enough to get you started! After that, run a YouTube search on additional drills you can do with the equipment. There’s no shortage of options out there!

So – enjoy the videos, and comment below if you have any questions.

HockeyShot Dryland Kits: Intro

HockeyShot’s dryland training kits are an awesome way to set up structured, well-organized dryland sessions for your team. Each starter kit contains 6 Speed Hurdles, 2 Reaction Balls, 4m Agility Ladder with carrying sleeve, 50 Saucer Cones, 6 Jump Ropes, Instructional DVD with TONS of drills, and a nice Transport Bag.

HockeyShot Dryland Kits: Speed Hurdles

These 6″ speed hurdles are great to have in the dryland kit. They are lightweight, yet durable, and there’s a lot of stuff you can do with them, as you can see in the video.

HockeyShot Dryland Kits:
Agility Ladder

One of the most versatile pieces of “quick feet” equipment, the agility ladder is a solid selection for this kit. Agility ladders are great for developing a quick, explosive lower body, but there are some fun upper-body drills you can do with this as well, so make sure you give a quick YouTube search when you get yours.

HockeyShot Dryland Kits:
Jump Rope

Awesome for both agility and endurance drills, the jump rope is a staple for team dryland sessions. This kit comes with 6 durable vinyl speed ropes, with molded PVC handles.

HockeyShot Dryland Kits:
Saucer Cones

Great for use for agility shuttle runs, routes, or wherever else pylons can be used. These saucer cones are a great selection for this kit because they’re flexible, so it won’t hurt if a player lands on one. Simple but the best!

HockeyShot Dryland Kits:
Reaction Ball

The Reaction Ball is the ideal tool for improving eye-hand coordination and reaction time. It’s unique 6-sided design allows the Reaction Ball to pop, bounce and leap unpredictably in different directions. Awesome for goalies!
