Training Aids etc

Anybody had good experience, recommendations etc with regard to training aids, whether on-ice or off-ice? For example, skate weights like Trion or powerslides?

Never tried those but for me a good shooting pad and sturdy regulation goal that has posts and crossbar that can stand up to a beating are invaluable. Great way to improve your shot off-ice.

Swedish stickhandlng balls and the green biscuit are nice stick handling aids.

The Green Biscuit is an amazing product, just don't shoot with it.

The training aids you will get the most use out of are a shooting pad and some toys to stickhandle with (and of course a net) A shooting pad and a net are the most important.

For stickhandling I like the green biscuit and the wooden stickhandling balls.

You can get it all at Hockey Shot, and I have a $10 coupon code if you spend over $100. For a shooting pad the bigger you get the better

$10 coupon code to save at Hockeyshot.com on any order over $100: use Code HOWHCKY001

The $35 option seems to be the more popular one, though I find that the $20 sold out quicker. The Green Biscuit, mentioned and praised countless times (a lot of it by me lol) is also in there.

The problem with the $35 option is that you can only shoot off of it, and can barely even do a full wrist shot. The board is pretty small, so it's tough to work on your stickhandling. I prefer the bigger board, if you plan on using it a lot just get a big board right off the start. Here is a size comparison



That doesn't include the roll-up shooting pad which is even bigger

Good points, but you gotta remember that it's meant for shooting only lol, not for stickhandling.

I had the 8x4 roll pad with Ezypuck pylons and rebounder shipped to Dubai. It massive. Well worth it for stick handling etc
