If players want to improve control and hand speed, they can only do so through repetition and feedback. RapidHands is a unique hockey training system that improves vision and stickhandling by providing a fun way to train while encouraging sound fundamentals.
The training system uses sensors embedded in synthetic ice to track the movement of the puck. When the system asks a player to stickhandle over a specific target, the puck activates the sensor, informing the software that the maneuver has been performed. It also allows players to work on their transition from stick handling to passing on both sides of the stick. Scores are recorded, performance is measured and feedback is provided to gauge the player’s progress and shows how they rank with respect to their peers.
Rapid Hands forces players to keep their head up to watch the screen while they stick handle.
