Yes, I’m going to put you in the know about some truly hard-to-find help!

Just click a photo below to discover more about that product…


BIG-TIME SAVINGS! Coach Chic’s college hockey playing grandson loves Howie’s tape, so you know the discount prices don’t mean the tape is of low quality.  No, it’s great stuff! Choose from white, clear and black, and either cloth or friction.

Check-out the Howie’s Hockey Tape belt fashioned from skate laces!

$…  Purchased by the carton, most prices are close to half-off what you’d pay elsewhere!


Control the puck, control the game!
What a great holiday gift!
Work your way through a series of drills designed to improve your ability to stickhandle with your eyes up.  Connect the QuickStickz camera to any compatible PC, and use your own stick to control the on-screen action of the puck.  Use proper technique every time you practice, and learn to see the whole game as you become a proficient stickhandler.  Watch as your ability increases over time and compare your progress online with friends and teammates!

$199 – Includes 3 months of VIP Membership.


I’ve read that one key indicator for athletic performance is grip strength (actually, just take a look at the forearms of your favorite athletes).  There’s a gyroscope inside the Wristball, which helps it generate massive inertia force putting the, hands, wrists and forearms of the user under big-time pressure – making the Wristball ideal for fitness enthusiasts and virtually every sport imaginable.  (Think:   hockey, baseball, basketball, football, wrestling and so many more sports!)


$49 ea. plus S/H Team rates also available.



Like you, I’m tired of worrying about young players sustaining serious neck or spinal cord injuries.  But, just click on the photo and see how I REALLY feel about all this!

$39.95 ea. plus S/H Team rates also available.



This is purely one of the best training devices ever invented for perfecting skating mechanics (and the right muscle memory)!  I’ve used it in numerous locations — including in The MOTION Lab, in rink lobbies, and my college playing grandson easily snaps his T-cords to either of two hooks in a telephone pole out in front of our house!

$115.99 ea. plus S/H

The Rotater

Not only will The Rotater help rehab or prevent some shoulder injuries, but this old hockey coach feels the increased flexibility gained through work with this device will also help a hockey player’s skating stride and stick reach!


$59.97 ea. plus S/H

Sports Performance Analyzer

I think the folks at SPA named this new product just right, in that it unbelievably assists a coach in analyzing his or her team’s performance — in more ways than I can list here.  So, please click on the SPA logo and discover all this program can do!



This is the first and only web-based sports motion telestrator that lets you upload, markup and voiceover videos without installing high priced, hard to use (and harder to configure) software. Already in use by professional players and teams, PowerChalk is changing the face of sports instruction!  (As for Dennis, he’s thinking of soon incorporating PowerChalk presentations in the site!)

$Varies (but at least take advantage of their free trial)!


SportzGemz – For Stinky Hockey Gear!

SportzGemz dry AND remove the smell. The volcanic mineral inside SportzGemz absorbs.  The result of drying equipment out properly is that the bacteria and fungus don’t grow and the risk of infection is minimized.  SportzGemz also have an antimicrobial property.  The mineral has been used for years in hospitals, water filtration and all sorts of industrial applications because of this unique, natural property.
