A Sniper’s Edge shooting tarp is one of the best ways that you can strengthen your shooting skills above the competition. They are easy to set up and extremely sturdy and durable. There are many ways that you could put one to good use, but we are going to tell you the best ways. Get ready to amp up your game and become unstoppable.
Set Up Your Shooting Tarp
The first thing you have to do is set up your tarp. Take into consideration that you may need quite a bit of area in order to get the most of your tarp. When you get a closer look at it, you will notice that it has grommet holes at the top. They are strategically placed in order to give your tarp the best balance it can get when you hang it up. It is large, some are seven feet tall, some are eight feet tall, but they are sixteen feet wide. If you don’t have sixteen feet to work with, you can hem in form both slides to balance out and cut a few feet off. Be sure that if you are setting up in front of a wall, or garage door, that you give yourself at least one foot of space so that the backside of the tarp will protect the surfaces behind it from the impact of the speeding pucks that will fly into it.
Hockey Shooting Pads
If you are going to practice shots with a shooting pad, you will have lots of fun doing so. Just because you don‘t have the luxury of a whole rink, doesn’t mean you can’t practice like you are on one. If you set your shooting pad up inline with your shooting tarp goal you can stack a pile of pucks right there within the reach of your stick and practice non-stop repetitive shots. The more you focus on shot after shot, the more you build your muscle memory and gain that extra skill that makes shots. When you make shots, you win games.
Hockey Dryland Floor Tiles
Dryland tiles, also known as slick tiles, are a great way to get a real hockey feel. When you set your shooting tarp up, get out there on your flooring and make some moves. You can mix and match your training aids, then use them to sharpen your snipe shots. If you use a puck rebounder for practice, you can bounce your shots off of the rebounder and practice sick dekes. Although you can’t practice with ice skates on the slick tiles, you can still practice slapping that puck at high speeds then returning passes to the goal to score impossible points. The good think about practicing like this is that your body remembers it when you go out on the ice and play for real.
Synthetic Ice Flooring
Sniper’s Edge synthetic ice flooring is the best on the market. When you use it in combination with your shooting tarp you can get a realistic training session because you can skate with ice skates on it. As you glide around the flooring in your skates, just like a real game, you can use a puck rebounder or just place cones to strengthen your skating skills, and shooting skills at the same time. Set up pucks in a line and hit them one by one into your target so that you build your skills even stronger.
