Of all the sports kids play these days, Hockey is one that you just can’t practice properly without wearing skates.  Take lacrosse for example,  all you need is a lacrosse stick and ball and away you go.  Grab a friend and pass back and forth or just throw the ball up against a wall to practice catching and throwing.  The list goes on and on….football, basketball, baseball..etc.  All can be practiced in the comfort of your our home, or playground.

With hockey or figure skating, the only way to practice properly is to go to the rink and skate. The problem is that you are only able to practice for a short period of time, have limited puck touches and it’s not only very time consuming, but it’s expensive.  Advances in hockey training tools are now changing the hockey training landscape.  Synthetic ice, which has been around for over 30 years, is now starting to gain tremendous strides in home hockey training applications.  One of the main reasons is that the technology has improved and the “ice like” feel is becoming more and more realistic.

The game has changed so dramatically that home hockey training is a “must have”.  Kid’s are working on their hockey skills 365 days a year and personal hockey trainers are more popular than ever.  But where do you practice what you are taught?  It’s impossible to get the proper reps and muscle memory from just an hour a week with the trainer.  Synthetic ice for home use solves this problem.  Now you can work on your inside and outside edges, quick turns, stops and starts, shooting and puck handling skills all while on your ice skate.

There is a fun element to all this as well.  Now kids can practice their hockey skills while having fun.  The best time that kids can work on their skills is when nobody is watching.  No pressure from coaches or trainers watching their every move.  They can work on the creative aspects of the game that is not available in an hour or so if ice time.
