Balls are hit at the DFlecta which alters the ball direction in both height and width. This recreates deflections to help train reaction times and hand-eye coordination of Hockey goalkeepers.
The mat enables a coach, assistant or even a parent to simulate deflected shots targeting high or low shots without needing to include the field players in the exercise. Its also a whole heap of fun for goalkeepers!
If not being used by the goalkeeper the mat can also be used within team drills to simulate defenders who can often deflect the ball.
