The 7th Annual 10,000 Pucks Contest is about to begin. Last year we had over 5.4 million shots logged world-wide by over 1,400 players. This year’s contest looks to be bigger than ever. Thanks to our prize sponsor for the contest HockeyShot.com.

The 10,000 Pucks Contest is a free contest dedicated to helping youth hockey players set and reach their goals while becoming a better shooter in the process. The premise is simple: set a goal of how many pucks you want to shoot this summer (Jun 1 – Aug 31) – then track your shots through the 10,000 Pucks website to measure your progress. The website is designed to allow coaches and associations to track the progress of their players in the off-season. Associations and coaches can set up teams in the contest – players can then join the teams, giving coaches and teammates access to their progress, thus creating accountability toward reaching their goals. The contest is free to use for players, coaches, and associations.
This year we’ve made some big improvements to the system. Here are a couple of the key upgrades you’ll find this year:
Track multiple players from the same login
iPad friendly interface (graphs & charts now load on most tablets / mobile devices)
Coaches: manage access to your team
Associations: create all your teams in one place and manage access by team
NiceRink and HockeyShare have teamed up for the 5th Annual NiceRink/HockeyShare Fantasy Hockey Contest. The contest is FREE to join and has lots of great prizes. The Grand Prize Winner will receive a $250 NiceRink Gift Certificate and an iPod Nano. We also will have monthly winners selected beginning with November.
The entry deadline (and the deadline to edit your rosters) is October 31st. So don’t delay – set your team up by visiting the following link:
As another great 10,000 Pucks Contest comes to a close, it’s time to recap this year’s event. With over 800 participants from around the world and 3.5 million shots recorded, this was the biggest (and best) contest to date!
I would like to congratulate all the participants who took the time to focus in on their goals and dedicated themselves to improving their game. Whether your goal was 1,000 or 20,000 -- there is much to be said about setting a goal and putting in the effort to achieve it. By applying these principles on and off the ice, you will be successful in life!
