How to Install the Sniper’s Edge Indoors

Hockey Equipment, Off-ice Training, Skills
Here's a Quick Tutorial on Installing the Sniper's Edge Indoors A few weeks ago I published a detailed review on the Sniper's Edge, which is a shooting tarp that can fit in the opening of any standard two-car garage. The product is fantastic, and I had a blast putting that review together. You can check it out here: FULL SNIPER'S EDGE REVIEW. Since then, I've relocated to a bigger house (Weiss Tech HQ), and the new house has a pretty big unfinished basement... perfect for my new hockey training facility! Benefits of the Indoor Installation After getting everything moved in, one of the first things I did was install my Sniper's Edge in the basement. As much as I liked it outdoors, I must admit, the indoor install has been…

The Sniper's Edge is an Awesome Hockey Targeting System that Offers Plenty of Versatility A few months ago, I got my hands on the Sniper's Edge from HockeyShot. I had seen this Hockey Targeting System in the past, but hadn't ever used one before. So, I was excited at the chance to give it a whirl, and was impressed with the experience. Product Overview The Sniper's Edge fits over any standard two-car garage door opening, and comes in 2 sizes, 7' x 16' or 8' x 16' (so make sure you measure the height of your garage door before ordering). The unit comes tightly wrapped in a box - make sure you follow the labeling and DON'T USE A KNIFE TO OPEN THE BOX, as you will risk slicing a…

QuickStickz is a Fun and Effective way to Develop Stickhandling Ability I've been really excited to get this post out, and let you know about a cool product called QuickStickz. QuickStickz is an innovative new way to work on your stickhandling abilities off the ice, and it's a lot of fun too!

I had seen the product before, but I'd never had the chance to get my hands on one. The idea seemed really cool, so I was excited to see what it was all about. How it Works: QuickStickz uses a special infrared camera that connects up to your PC via USB jack. The camera combos up with…

HockeyVision Training Pucks

HockeyVision Training Pucks

Goalie, Hockey Drills, Hockey Equipment, Individual Skill Drills, Off-ice Training, Skills, Stickhandling
Train Yourself to Rely Less on Seeing the Puck HockeyVision Training Pucks are a great way to train yourself to rely less and less on seeing the puck, which will then allow you to stickhandle with your head up, enabling you to see more of the play. HockeyVision Training Pucks are white, with a black dot in the middle. The black dot comes in three sizes (large, medium, and small). The idea is to work your way down from the large, more-visible dot to small, less-visible dot, training your eye to not have to see as much of the puck while stickhandling. These pucks are available in on-ice and off-ice models. The on-ice pucks are made of rubber (same as a regulation puck), and the off-ice ones are made of…

The X-Tiles Flooring System Allows you to Build a State of the Art Hockey Training Center, One Piece at a Time! I was recently introduced to a new hockey dryland tile that I'm really excited about. It's called the X-Tile, and it's made by XHockeyProducts (yes, the same company that brought you the X-Passer, and the X-Deviator). If you're familiar with XHockeyProducts, you already know they are famous for designing heavy duty, smart, & functional hockey training equipment... and this product is no different! The X-Tiles are not only an awesome flooring product to give you a slick surface for stickhandling, shooting, and passing, but they're also a fully integrated, hockey training system that works in tandem with many other products! In this review I'll be showing you how the…
