Full Hockey Training Kits
These can be considered “all-in-one training solutions. Full hockey training kits typically come with tools to train multiple skills whether it be stick handling, shooting, deking or all of the above. Check them out.
Hockey Shooting Pads
We’ve compiled a list of the best hockey shooting pads available today. These pads mimic ice, are slick, and will greatly improve your shooting skills over time.
Unlike the shooting pad, hockey skating tiles can be linked together to create as small or as large surface as you want. There are two types of hockey tiles, a type you can skate on and a type that you cannot. You choose.
Hockey Targets and Shooter Tutors
Another great hockey training tool is targets and shooting tutors. You can get individual targets and put them anywhere around a hockey goal you want or you can go for the full shooter tutor that typically has the image of a goalie with open shooting pockets to practice your sniping.
Hockey Nets and Backstops
One pice of equipment that is extremely important if you’re going to train and practice your hockey skill is a good quality hockey net and/or hockey backstop. The main difference between the twos is that a hockey net with backstop comes with extra netting around the goal to limit the puck going behind the net when you happen to miss going top shelf.
Hockey Pucks and Balls
This comes down to personal preference….would you rather train with a puck or a ball? Are you practicing on a shooting pad or hockey tiles or are you out on the street or in the driveway?
Hockey Slide Boards
Do you need to increase your endurance and stamina? Build up the muscles need for maximum thrust and power? Then a hockey slide board may be your train aid of choice. The boards are great for mimicking push off and gliding on the ice, using the same muscles if you were actually on the ice.
Hockey Passing Kits
Don’t have a partner to pass the puck to you?…no problem. These hockey passing kits require no one else to train your passing skills. They typically come with a hockey passer ( device that bounces the puck back to you at same speed that you sent it) and a shooting pad.
Same as above, except these are just the passers. These are great to use on shooting tiles or attach to an existing shooting pad. You can get a single sided passer or multi-sided passer.
Hockey Balance Boards
When you consider that the game of hockey is 100% played on a sheet of ice, balance becomes a skill that is very important. Players use hockey balance boards to improve their balance over time. They can even practice stick handling and shooting while balancing. Great for your core too.
Hockey Stickhandling Aids
Stickhandling is a key skill that hockey players must be good at. So it’s important to keep practicing and training. These stick handling aids will help your hand/eye coordination and improve your dekes.
Hockey Goalie Training Aids
Hockey Goalies need to train too! They have a great selection of goalie training aids that will help improve reaction time, focus and develop muscles needed for those timely saves.
Dryland Hockey Training Aids
Not all hockey training aids are meant for an ice surface. There are many types of trains that are done on dry land.
