Hockey Targets: Rack up your goal-scoring record fast by practicing with a hockey goal target. Hockey shooting targets train you to hit the spots goalies find hard to defend.
Watch any NHL hockey game, and keep a tally of where the goals enter the hockey net. The goalie, even with his huge glove, pads and stick, cannot possibly defend every corner of the net at the same time. Chances are great that unless the goalie is way out of position, your shots will most often score when placed into the four corners of the net, or in the wedge between the goalie's legs and above the goalie's stick.
Hockey shooting targets have been designed that completely block the goal, except for these key spots! Use a hockey target strapped to the mouth of your own hockey net to help you drill the spots goalies find so hard to defend.
Targets are also sometimes called goalie substitutes, stand-ins for a real goalie when you're practicing alone. I have provided a goalie substitute for my son when he is outdoors skating. This makes it fun for him to shoot even when he is out on our backyard ice rink alone.
To help you target these small areas of the goal, we wanted to provide some excellent goalie substitutes of all sizes for you to choose from.
These hockey shooting targets are made for use in tough, ice hockey environments.

Die cut hockey goal targets are constructed of 40 oz. nylon re-enforced vinyl that absorbs the shock of the puck when the shooter fails to score.
The targets fasten quickly with heavy straps, and the wrap around design eliminates strap damage and loss. A steel bar along the base keeps the target straight.
Any truly serious shooting practice should involve either a real-life goalie or a hockey target as a goalie substitute. Because unless there's a minute to go in the game, your team is up by 1 score, and the opposing goalie has been pulled so they can play against you 6 on 5, you're always staring at a goalie when trying to score!
