Hockey players are like children: they are often missing teeth, are placed in a timeout box when they get into a fight, and their legs can be rubbed for good luck. Give yourself the luck of a child with today's Groupon: for $48, you get three training sessions at Goal Line Hockey Training Centre (a $99 value).
At Goal Line Hockey Training Centre, students of all ages and skill levels glide across a 45’x45’ synthetic ice rink, polishing their handling and shooting finesse while fortifying skating techniques. Professional hockey trainers guide ice avengers through passing techniques that facilitate puck delivery without the assistance of postage stamps. Students also learn defensive plays and offensive moves that equip them to deftly patrol rink perimeters, and stick-handling techniques and agility circuits make puck pushers a greater threat on ice than a feral zamboni. On the Endless Ice skatemill, meanwhile, skaters safely glide in place under supervision at speeds up to 25.6 km/h and at inclines of up to 18 per cent. Additionally, laser sensors are in place to track players' strides, and a 16-foot shooting lane and wrap-around deck train students to smack pucks at ice-breaking speeds and how to later apologize.
