How does SweetHands work?
Our revolutionary hockey training product, and best-seller, SweetHands, takes the guess-work out of how to get young hockey players to execute proper stickhandling techniques. SweetHands was developed because using pucks or cones on the ice does NOT teach proper stickhandling. Using cones or pucks just teaches a player to push the puck around when skating.
•By maneuvering the puck or ball in and out of SweetHands forces the player to lift their stick up and over the connecting arm and regaining control of the puck or ball.
•Lifting your stick up and over the connecting arm, you're delayed in recovering the puck or ball. This delay will force you to roll the wrist of your controlling hand, or top hand, to recover the puck or ball.
•The rolling of the wrist is critical to the improvement of all stickhandling skills.
•Stickhandling is a skill that is never perfected and must be constantly practiced, even at the college and professional levels
•After technically mastering each individual skill, the player will advance to higher speed movement drills, as well as partner passing, utilizing forehand, backhand and saucer passing.
Why does it work?
•The key to mastering any hockey skill is proper technique and repetition - repetition - repetition.
•A player can see their improvement by the efficiency of doing SweetHands. The less time it takes to go forward and backwards thru the SweetHands without a mistake is a testimonial to their improvement.
Where do you use it?
•SweetHands is a dual purpose hockey training aid and can be used equally well in both on-ice and off-ice settings. (Only product on the market that has SPIKES for ice usage....creates better stability on the ice)
•Our off-ice training balls are perfect when using SweetHands in the garage or driveway. Every practice on ice or dryland should have a station with SweetHands!
