50,000 SHOTS CHALLENGE
Join us from 12:00pm to 4:00pm on Saturday, April 15th at Synergy Hockey Training Centre - with Kamloops KIA on location - to kick off the 50,000 Shots Challenge!
How well do you think your shooting would improve if you performed 50,000 puck touches over a 26-week period? Synergy Hockey Training Centre would like to invite you to join our 50,000 Shots Challenge. Take the journey yourself or grab a couple friends and start the journey together. We are encouraging all players to participate in the Synergy 50,000 Shots Challenge. The goal is to support our hockey players to develop great shooting skills, recognize the commitment it takes in the sport of hockey, and to make Kamloops players the best shooters around through dedication, practice, and repetition.
*For 8 years old and under the Shots Challenge will be dropped down to 10,000 but not limited to.
The challenge will start on April 15th and end on October 14th. This challenge will take place at Synergy Hockey Training Center - on skates - utilizing our shooting zones. Players must shoot 50,000 pucks in the period listed. That is on average of 1900 shots on net, per week, which is
roughly 641 pucks an hour if you commit to shooting at Synergy 3 times a week. Not bad hey! As part of this challenge, we are asking that you complete 12,500 of each shot: wrist shot, snapshot, slapshot, and backhand shot. Each style will be demonstrated by our director of player development, Jan Ludvig. There will be a session for each age group on April 15th, as well as sessions during the challenge, to ensure proper technique. Each shooting zone will be equipped with an NHL hockey net and 100 pucks. It’s simple! Take your shoots, track, and submit your results daily by using the form available below.
