Your ideas—becoming reality

Who is it for?

By Players for Players

Off-ice shooting training is massively underappreciated and underutilized—both in-season and off-season. This makes shooting an underdeveloped skill. It is not a "gift" only some players have.

This skill can be developed off-ice. On-ice time is scarce and expensive. Off-ice time is plentiful and inexpensive. This is why we exist.

Hockey Copilot is for hockey players and trainers dissatisfied with the status quo—insufficient shooting training tools. We built Hockey Copilot to raise the bar. Not just on one dimension, but nine:

DIY (Do-It-Yourself) Friendly

The Hockey Copilot system is DIY friendly by design. We know training facilities, sport courts, field houses, gyms, home basements, garages, shops, and business environments come in various shapes and sizes.

  • Golf simulator conversion kit—the Lite Kit transforms your golf simulator into a hockey simulator
  • Affordability—the Lite Kit is great for those with an existing computer, projector, and/or tarp area
  • Flexibility—we support 5 tarp install types—wall, ceiling, clothesline, net-clipped, and enclosure
  • Non-proprietary tarp—it just needs to be plain white and durable

FAQs — Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Can I use my own computer?—Yes
    • For the best accuracy and rendering responsiveness experience we recommend a HD (1920x1080) computer with an i5 (2.70GHz) processor (or better), a dedicated graphics card (NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2050 or better), and at least 1GB RAM
    • That said, we have customers who've been happy with their i3 processor though the accuracy and responsiveness can be degraded
    • Processors other that i3, i5, i7, and i9 work as do other graphics cards but Hockey Copilot is currently optimized for Intel processors and NVIDIA graphics cards
  2. Can I use my own projector?—Yes
    • We recommend a HD (1920x1080) projector that has an ANSI lumen count of 4000 (or more) to counter ambient light. However, you can use less or more lumens and/or adjust lighting to find what works best for your environment
    • We highly recommend this Projector Throw Distance Calculator to determine which projector works best for your environment
  3. Can I use my own tarp?—Yes
    • Hockey Copilot does not require a proprietary tarp—it just needs to be plain white for the projector and tracking camera to work properly. You can overlay one against an existing shooting tarp, a golf simulator impact screen, or install your own (wall, ceiling, clothesline, net-clipped, or enclosure)
    • Additionally, we recommend a 20mil heavy duty tarp and its installation 16"-20" off the wall. If you have cement walls or additional padding behind the tarp you can install closer to the wall
    • We've heard 16mil tarps or two 10mil tarps back-to-back work fine. Experiment at your own risk
  4. Is the camera setup location flexible?—Yes
    • The camera simply needs an unobstructed view of the tarp and a portion of the shooting area. This means it can be mounted from floor to ceiling
    • We recommend table height or higher behind the shooter. Ceiling mounting can be ideal if your space abides, but a custom length USB 2.0 cable is required
    • Additionally, there are on-screen directions and controls in the Hockey Copilot app for further adjusting, zooming, and optimizing the camera's view
  5. Can I use my existing golf simulator setup?—Yes
    • The computer and projector requirements mentioned above still stand (typically golf simulators have this covered with ease) and you'll still need to purchase our tracking camera and software via the Lite Kit
    • Additionally, you'll likely want to overlay a plain white tarp over your existing impact screen to protect it from black puck marks
  6. Do I get customer support?—Yes
    • You can email us and expect a response within 48 hrs (often much faster) or you can schedule a call (phone or video—whichever you prefer)
  7. Can I use Hockey Copilot outside?—Yes
    • Naturally, you're responsible for protecting the system and its electronics from the weather
    • Additionally, to combat ambient sunlight you'll need a projector with well over our 4000 lumen indoor recommendation during daylight hours. Typically, the higher the lumen count the more expensive the projector
