Shooting ramp hockey - How you can train shots and puck techniques at home

With a hockey shooting ramp, you can improve shots and puck techniques even when you don't have access to ice. Here, we give you tips on what type of shooting ramp is best suited and what accessories you may need to get the most out of your training.

As a hockey player, you know that it is important to be skilled on both skates and with the stick to perform at a high level. To improve these skills, it simply requires a lot of training and often, even when you are not at hockey practice. However, it can be difficult to train as you want when you do not have access to the ice, especially during the summer months and during the so-called off-ice or dry-land training.

One of the very best ways to train outside the ice is to train your shot with the help of a shooting ramp. Of course, you can build a hockey shooting ramp yourself with plywood, but synthetic shooting plates provide a better glide. If you also have something to shoot at, such as a hockey goal, you can train your shots all summer long, for example, in the garage, in the yard or in the garage driveway.


Synthetic Shooting Ramp

Today, there are ready-made shooting ramps made of durable synthetic material, with a focus on creating a solid surface with as good a glide as possible. With this, you can train both shooting and stick technique, as the puck and stick glide relatively friction-free over the shooting plate, just like on the ice. For those who primarily want to train shooting, a shooting plate is enough, but if you want to be able to train more on dribbling and puck handling, you can benefit from a larger area. Then there is the possibility to attach several plates to each other.

Below, we recommend some of our best shot ramps as well as other accessories that enhance training.
