A new way to practice situational hockey.
Owner and Head Instructor at Skillz Company
ROXs Pro consists of interactive, durable Rocks that can easily be set up to cater to your team’s specific training programs. How often do you find equipment that can actually take your hockey players’ fitness and cognitive functions to the next level?
Develop smarter players
Rocks can easily be set up in different locations on the ice with various formations, which improves players’ understanding of offensive and defensive positioning. Work on systems with the Rocks simulating opposing players while the randomized manner forces players to improve their overall communication skills.
Focus on player safety and self-protection
No need to continue shouting “HEADS UP!” to your players. The necessity to react to the lights forces players to keep their heads on a swivel. The more the Rocks are used, the more comfortable players become skating and stickhandling without having their eyes on the puck. They can recognize on-coming opponents easily and protect themselves from potential checks. Player injuries, especially concussions, can now be prevented more effectively.
Simulate real-game scenarios
Improve your players’ hockey sense and awareness on the ice with ROXs Pro’s randomized visual and auditory cues. Simulate real-game scenarios and challenge players to improve their decision-making skills. You can set up the Rocks to focus on making quick decisions such as shot selection, passing, finding open space and reacting to the opposition. With faster thought-processing and the necessity to keep their heads up, your players will be ready to recognize and read game situations accurately and efficiently.
All of the drills with ROXs Pro are fun. The challenges will ensure that all of your players will get competitive with smiles on their faces. The drills, the time restrictions and the data stored into our cloud-based dashboard will ignite a fire within the player to work harder.
Focus on the athlete, not the drill
Analyze individual performance with objective data. You can track levels of growth for every player. The Rocks are suitable for all ages, levels and abilities. Focus on each player individually, notice their strengths and weaknesses, and create your own drills to improve and take them to the next stage of their development. The Rocks are perfect for both on-ice and off-ice training.
Inspire yourself and your team
Trainers and coaches have all given us one important element of feedback. ROXs Pro have inspired them to be more creative by developing and implementing their own training and drills. With the randomization factor, multi-color lights and the other exciting features that the Rocks have to offer, trainers generally find an incentive to experiment and unleash a side of them that they didn’t know they had before.
ROXs Pro is perfect for fundamental hockey skills
CHANGE IN DIRECTION & AGILITY
Work on using inside and outside edges and shifting while quickly navigating the randomized flashes of the Rocks.
ACCELERATION & DECELERATION
Place the Rocks at different distances and angles and set up a time restriction to force players to change speed quickly while utilizing crossovers, tight turns, stop and starts and all other skating forms.
Adding pucks into agility drills will help players develop the ability to comfortably handle and move with the puck while simultaneously maintaining the same speed and quickness.
Time restrictions on the app motivates players to constantly perform drills at full speed. The only way to improve is to push oneself beyond his/her comfort zone.
SHOOTING ACCURACY & QUICK RELEASE
The Rocks can serve as targets or the random color of the lights can dictate where to shoot on the net and how much time the player has to hit this target. This practice method is great for developing a quick release, precise aim, and good technique.
PERIPHERAL VISION & REACTION SPEED
Spreading out the Rocks in reaction drills requires players to have an acute spatial awareness. Any randomization factor provided by the flashing Rocks helps develop the cognitive and neurological functions of a player (it enables players to practice a skill on their own that would typically require practicing with other players as well).
I love the ROXs because of the versatility and randomness. Agility/change of direction is a key aspect of athleticism.
