Girls who play hockey rock, and HockeyShot is thrilled to have ties with some awesome female hockey players from Team Canada. First up to tell us why she loves Hockey Shot is Caroline Ouellette. Caroline has been a pillar of Canada’s national hockey team since 1999, winning Olympic gold in Salt Lake City in 2002, Torino in 2006, Vancouver in 2010 and Sochi in 2014.
Caroline Ouellette is also a source of inspiration through her hockey camps, which utilize the great diversity of Hockey Shot Products. As Caroline told us,
“I currently run female hockey camps in Quebec, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and PEI. Hockey Shot has allowed us to create a fun environment in which young female players are learning and improving by doing high repetitions of a particular skill. Whether we are working on skating, shooting, passing, stickhandling, dekes or deceptive moves, Hockey Shot’s products are remarkable. The HS Extreme Dangler , Attack Triangle Pro, Passer Pro, and Extreme Shooter Tutor challenge players at every level.”
We love that Caroline uses so many different Hockey Shot Products in her camps to help elevate specific hockey skills in every athlete.
Marie-Philip Poulin also knows the importance of improving your hockey skills through repetition and at home training. A member of the Canada Olympic Female Hockey Teams at age 18 that won the gold medal at the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver she went on to win gold again at the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, as well as scoring three goals for Canada to take home a Silver Medal in PyeongChang 2018. She has been referred to as the Sidney Crosby of women's hockey for her high level of achievement at a young age, and Hockey Shot is proud to be part of her training.
When asked about how Hockey Shot Products were a part of Marie-Philip’s training process she answered,
“HS Training Aids are a big part of my off-ice season practice. To be an elite Olympian, I need to stay sharp, products like the HS Tiles, Passer Pro, Dangler and Slide Board Pro allow me to maximize my performance and be ready for the big games. HS Products are helping me improve my game every day.”
Players who use their Hockey Shot Products every day are the reason we do what we do! Take it from a 2x Olympic Gold Medalist and Team Canada Captain, at home training with Hockey Shot Products is a sure-fire way to improve your game on the ice.
Another great thing about Hockey Shot Products is their versatility in developing specific skills while being used in multiple different ice hockey training drills. Jenn Wakefield, a member of Team Canada who participated in the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver as well as playing on the gold-medal winning team at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi and the silver-medal winning team at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang.
Jenn is a relative newcomer to Hockey Shot Products but has already fallen in love with the quality and durability Hockey Shot Products provide. As she told us about her first encounter with our Product Line Up,
“This summer I was introduced to a variety of HockeyShot products on and off the ice and loved them all. I found they helped me improve my stick handling, shooting and passing. It was great having the option to train off ice in my driveway and all the products were easily transportable to the rink for on ice sessions.”
Another hockey pro who recently got a taste of all that Hockey Shot has to offer is Natalie Spooner, former player for the Canadian National women’s ice hockey team and current member of the Toronto Furies of the Canada Women’s Hockey League. After testing out Hockey Shot Products at the High-Performance Hockey Academy Natalie bragged,
“HockeyShot completely delivered this weekend at my High-Performance Hockey Academy! They generously donated on-ice training aids and giveaway items such as bracelets, stickers and unique promo codes to all participants. The kids loved using the products and wearing their new HockeyShot swag. We could not be happier :)”
Hockey Shot is committed to helping athletes of all performance levels continue to improve their hockey skills with at home training, so grab your gear today and get training!
