Shooting is a very important skill to practice on the ice and at home. The only problem is that a lot of players do not have the appropriate area to practice shooting at home. Parents are sometimes worried about the damage that the pucks may cause as this can cost a lot of money. One solution is to provide an area for a child to practice shooting, and a great product is a hockey shooting tarp called the Snipers Edge.
Purpose – The Snipers Edge is a very big tarp that can be hung in a garage or basement to catch and stop pucks. It was designed to reduce the damage caused by stray pucks and give children and adults a target to shoot at.
Price – The price of the Snipers Edge is $189.05
Design – The Snipers Edge uses a rubber / plastic type material that appears to be very durable. The tarp also has a goaltender and net painted on to recreate the on-ice situation of shooting on a goaltender. The Snipers Edge also features five pockets and a back pouch that will collect pucks. Every time a player gets the puck in the pocket the puck will be collected in the back pouch
Close Look at the Snipers Edge
Set-up – The Snipers Edge comes with eyelets at the top and a pocket all along the bottom to insert a rod or doweling in to help it hang properly. The eyelets appear to be fastened securely on an area of the tarp that has been doubled up and double stitched. To set up the tarp you just have to use ropes or bungee cords and you can install it in your basement or garage.
Quality – The material looks very durable and they have used double stitching throughout the entire tarp. From the looks of the tarp it can hold up to a lot of pucks.
Penalty Box – I couldn’t find any big faults with the product, if you have used this problem and found anything you didn’t like let us know in the comment section.
- Big tarp and fair price for the size you get
- Goalie and net printed on the tarp gives the player targets to shoot for
- Pockets in the tarp make great targets and makes shooting more fun
- A great way to reduce damage
- Will encourage kids to shoot the puck more and improve their shot

I have one and like it. Although I’d rather have a goal, the Snipers Edge prevents my misses and ricochets from putting holes in my drywall. Money well spent.
