You can do shooting drills off ice but nothing is quite the same as shooting while on skates. Having your own synthetic ice rink allows you to master the balance required to shoot in full hockey gear. If you ask most NHL snipers they'll tell you about the endless hours they spent practicing their shot. There is no substitution for practice and hard work.
Synthetic ice can be great for goalie training too. It doesn't require a lot of ice surface for a goalie to work in side to side net coverage, cutting down angles and techniques like the butterfly.
Synthetic ice is an excellent way for anyone who is serious about their game to maximize their training efforts. Nothing can replace on ice training, why not get access to it 24/7?
