We are a hockey family, there is no doubt about that. If you follow me regularly, then you probably already know how much my family likes hockey and how much we like to try out various hockey training aids from HockeyShot. The latest HockeyShot training aid that we have put to the test are the HockeyShot Dryland Flooring Tiles.
Any unused space can become a training zone with HockeyShot Dryland Flooring Tiles. These snap-together 18″ by 18″ tiles simulate the slickness and smoothness of the ice, and are sold individually so you only have to order what you need.

Okay so let me give you a couple of tips for putting the HockeyShot Dryland Flooring Tiles together….
If you watched my video above, then you probably noticed that it is easier to put a row of tiles together and then attach them to the already put together row. I found it more difficult to try adding them one at a time instead of a row at a time. Adding the tiles a row at a time is actually really easy. I can see why you receive a rubber mallet with an order of 20 or more tiles as although the tiles are easy to snap together, your hand could get sore after awhile.
The tiles are a great size at 18 inches by 18 inches. We have 12 tiles and it made a great sized shooting and stick handling area in our garage.
The tiles are very smooth and it does feel like you are stick handling on ice. The tiles are also very durable and are said to be strong enough to park a car on, which I believe, but have not tried. I just do not want the cars on our tiles getting them scratched or dirty. Plus I would just have to move the cars all the times as the tiles get used all the time.
There is no concern over seams as we have never noticed the seams or where each tile connects. The only part you notice is the edge of course, which you can purchase edging for the dryland flooring tiles which I do recommend getting with your purchase. The edging would make it a lot easier to get the puck back up on the flooring tiles when it goes off the area.
I recommend the HockeyShot Dryland Flooring Tiles for an area that is going to remain a shooting, stick handling, training area. Although you could take the tiles apart, it is probably something that you would not want to be doing on a regular basis.
I also love the tiles because you can grab a couple and make a small area just about anywhere in your house for stick handling.
