HockeyShot Dryland Tiles Review – New Vs Old

HockeyShot’s Bench Boss Jeremy Rupke is putting the new HockeyShot Dryland Flooring Tiles Allstar Edition to the test. Coach Jeremy has been using the old HockeyShot Dryland Flooring Tiles for a while now, so we thought we’d give him the all new set to see how well they stacked up to his used ones. Coach Jeremy tests our Allstar Tiles on their ease of assembly, durability and glide.



The biggest difference that Coach Jeremy loved about the new tiles was their puzzle piece design, created specifically for easy assembly. Say goodbye to loops and hooks because these new tiles are a breeze to put together and can be arranged in any pattern. Coach Jeremy recommends a few different patterns in the video to help maximize your space for how you train.

Coach Jeremy tests the new Dryland Flooring Tiles Allstar Edition durability by a good old-fashioned slash down. Watch him attack our Dryland Flooring Allstar Tiles with the ‘Crosby Finger Chopper’ (warning, do not try this at home!) and see how well both the new and old HockeyShot Dryland Flooring Tiles Allstar Edition hold up. Our super strong plastic does not give in to any cracks or breaks. Hockey Shot has even added a matte finish, instead of the industry glossy finish, for prolonged glide and durability.

In addition to the Dryland Flooring Allstar Tiles, Coach Jeremy suggests Extreme Passers or a Slide Board Pro to help you take your at home training to the next level. If you are looking for an amazing way to train at home, then you have come to the right place. Coach Jeremy puts the pressure on the Hockey Shot Dryland Flooring Tiles Allstar Edition and they hold up great.

Coach Rupke

For many of you who already follow along with his hockey shenanigans, Jeremy Rupke hardly needs an introduction! Jeremy’s love for the game and enthusiasm comes across in all that he does, and he is sure to give you a good laugh even in the pursuit of enhancing your serious hockey skills.

Growing up in the small-town of Hunstville, Ontario, Canada (Population: 20,000) Rupke did not have a lot to do, other than play hockey of course. And really, what else do you need? As a young boy, these small-town roots sparked a passion in Rupke that has yet to be tamed. When Jeremy met obstacles, or identified weaknesses in his game, he did not stop practicing until he found a solution or just got better. This dedication continues to drive everything that he does.

When looking for inspiration Rupke turned to old hockey videos, even before the Internet days, like Don Cherry's “Rock'Em Sock'em Hockey” but don’t tell him we told you. As the Internet took over Jeremy started searching for educational videos online. Unfortunately, (but fortunate for us) Rupke was not satisfied with what he could dig up. As he always does when faced with an obstacle, Jeremy, instead of continuing to look for an improbable solution, created the solution, giving life to HowToHockey.

As you are probably aware, HowToHockey is the bread and butter for online hockey videos (most have been shared right here on HockeyShot). Rupke offers tips and tricks to enhance your game and he is sure to entertain. He is constantly providing his followers with content that can’t be met by any other online hockey sensation in the world! And we sincerely mean that.

Knowing he is providing inspiration to young kids inspires Rupke to continue his work. If you follow him on his many social media accounts, you know that he is already coaching his first-born son, Mason to become the next “Great One” (sorry Wayner). In between making his hockey wife, Sammy very happy of course :)

Rupke meticulously studies the pros and translates the knowledge he gains, into easy to follow advice. He breaks down each hockey skill in a way that most players would not be able to put into words. It’s this attention to detail that helps kids (and adults) make small changes that equal huge gains. In Jeremy’s own words “I guess you could say I am obsessed with player development and coaching”. It’s an obsession that HockeyShot and many of our customers are grateful for! Relating to all the kids out there who don’t get one-on-one time to develop their skills, Rupke, with some help from the Internet, has made this a possibility to players around the globe!

Kudos to our Bench Boss Jeremy Rupke.
