One of the best ways a hockey player can improve their goal scoring is by working on their shot. Accuracy is a very important part of shooting, and should be practiced on a regular basis. In the NHL the BEST players average about 5 shots per game and they are playing three 20 minute periods. I would guess that most good minor hockey players get about 1-6 shots per game. When you look at it this way you can understand why working on your shot is so important! If you only get about 1-6 shots per game you need to make sure each one is accurate and powerful.
If you ask me, the best way to make shooting practice more fun is to have some targets to shoot at. When I was younger I had a goalie tarp and it was perfect for practicing my accuracy. In this article I will be reviewing the Ultimate Goalie Shooting Target.

Overall thoughts of the Goalie Target
Overall I love this product, it is good quality, easy to use, and gives hockey players some targets to shoot at. If you plan on shooting on a regular basis it’s a good idea to have a few targets in the net. This Goalie target gives you 5 different spots to shoot. The only downside to the product is the cost. It retails for $139, which is a bit steep, but if you plan on practicing your shot for a while it is a product that will last and is worth investing in.
Compared to other targets: Most targets are cheaper but will not last as long. Most other targets are mounted in the corners and the goal is to hit them with pucks. The problem is with repeated use these targets wear out and break. The Goalie Target is much more durable and will withstand a lot of shots!
