The Smarthockey Training Ball is the only off-ice training device that matches the bounce, weight, height and slide of an ice hockey puck. For years European and Soviet players have used wooden stickhandling balls before games and for off-ice skills training to develop lightening quick, soft hands. With advances in space age materials Smart Hockey patented a stickhandling and shooting ball which even more closely replicates an ice hockey puck's weight, bounce co-efficient, slide co-efficient and height at which the puck contacts the stick. The patented, two-piece dynamic core technology feels so much like an ice hockey puck that pro, collegiate, and high school players across North America are using the ball as an essential part of their off-ice skills development.
The Smarthockey Training Ball is recognized as the #1 off-ice training ball in the world and can be found in the locker rooms of over 22 NHL teams, 30 European National and Pro teams, 50 US Men's and Women's Division I College teams and numerous Major Junior teams.
